Need a replacement remote for 4630X

Jump to solution

I need a replacement remote for 4630X, don't know if its IR or IF or both ?

Does anyone have a suggestion on what remote I need and/or if an after-market model will work better ?

Thanks

Sid

Yes - they can/do transmit both (one or the other, configurable with advanced settings configuration, including for TV/AVR/soundbar IR v CEC control)

A Roku Simple Remote is just that - IR-only (no voice or power/volume controls etc).

A Universal remote would be akin to a Simple Remote when programmed for Roku.

The 4630 is both IR and WiFi Direct.

For official remotes, either the $20 Voice Remote (RCAL7R) or $30 Voice Remote Pro (RCS01R) can be used, and can be obtained from Roku.com/Walmart/Best Buy/Amazon/etc.

For unofficial remotes, you'd need an IR-only Universal/Roku pre-programmed remote, which can be had for $5-15 at Walmart/Best Buy/Amazon/etc.

Thank you for the link, the page lists all those remotes, but no model number or detail on each ?!

Only: Pro, Enhanced, Voice and Simple !

How do you get a model or specs from that ?

Thanks

Sid.

Our Roku is buried in a birds nest of cables behind the TV, so I am pretty sure its IF.

Which models are IF ?

You're looking for RF (Radio Frequency).  Either of the Voice Remotes are RF.  The Simple remote is IR (Infrared).

Will all the models respond to IR remotes ?

And the better ones respond to both IR and RF ?

@Sid03 

All the non-Stick models support both IR and WiFi Direct (RF)

Stick models only support WiFi Direct (RF)

Re-read my initial response to you for information.

Thank you for the prompt response !

So the IR remotes need no setup, but the RF versions need to be synced with Roku unit ?

Thanks

Last question:  Are the remotes the transmit RF, transmit IR as well ?

Or is it one or the other ?  Programmable option ? 

Thanks
