Re: No remote

Not possible if the roku hasn't been set to the same network and password as the roku app. You would need a remote to do that first, but it doesn't have to be true roku remote since the express takes IR remote, so a cheap universal with roku code will work.

Re: No remote


As @Tivoburkee mentioned, you will need a remote to set up the device and then you would be able to use the mobile app as a remote. 

If you need a replacement remote, you can purchase the Roku Standard IR Remote on our Support page here: Player Accessories
