The TCL 55R615 TV included a weak IR remote that barely works with a soundbar placed in front of it. I paired the TV with a different Roku remote, but the TCL Roku TV settings do not include an option for "setup remote for TV control." How am I suppose to program the TV volume and power buttons without this option? The only way that I can program these buttons is by using a Roku stick. There should be an easier way.
Neither a Roku tv Wifi direct or the Stick Wifi direct remotes can be programmed to control ANY soundbar or stereo. They can only be programmed for TV's!!! You maybe able to control it via hdmi cec? Firestick 4k remotes can be programmed for Soundbars.
There is no way to reprogram the remote without a Roku stick. I was wondering if there is a way to do so without one.
I think we are all confused on what you have for a remote. If you are using the remote that came with the TCL TV, it is not programmable at all. It is an IR remote.
