Re: Connect roku express+ without a remote

@HungTopDayton 

Sorry you can't, you need a remote but it doesn't have to be a true roku remote, a cheap universal remote would do.

Re: Connect roku express+ without a remote

@HungTopDayton 

Thanks for the inquiry.

As @Tivoburkee mentioned, you will need a remote to connect your device to your wireless network.

If you need a replacement remote for your Express+, you can order a Simple remote on our Products page here: Player Accessories


Thanks,
Danny

Re: Connect roku express+ without a remote

@RokuDanny-R  Can something be done about listing Roku Tv under the simple remote, it will not work on any roku tv. And I would remove the soundbar as well, the simple remote has no volume keys.

Roku Express Setup Can't find Remote

Changed ISP. Can’t find remote for #Roku Express. Can’t connect to player using mobile app because it is not connected to the same network as the mobile device. Can’t find IP address for my Roku Express player to change the network on my mobile app. I did find SN but can’t find IP address. 

***Buying another remote or another Roku player is out of the question. 

Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me.

Re: Roku Express network setup problems

You need another remote. They are not expensive neither are Roku's.

You will NOT be able to setup your Roku to the new LAN. period.

 

Roku Ultra ---Ethernet rules---

From now on if people dont upvote me and do as I say I will consider holding my breath and selling my Roku's.

Re: Roku Express network setup problems

Your Roku is set to look for the network name (SSID) on your former router and log into it with the old password. If you can set your router to use the same SSID and password, your Roku should connect to it.

@MandaMay81 

Unless you have a cellphone with built-in IR emitter, yes you will need a remote. But it doesn't have to be a true roku remote, a cheap universal would do. You wouldn't happen to have charter cable remote it could have a roku code in it?
