Possible to train the Voice Remote to work with a Soundbar?

Jump to solution

I have a Samsung TV and a Roku Premiere+ with the voice remote.  Can I teach the remote to control my volume with a Yamaha Soundbar?

@Fishface  Thanks for the question! Roku remotes with TV power and volume controls are designed to control TVs only. This functionality is not supported for use with A/V receivers or soundbars.

You may, however, be able to control your soundbar's volume if both your TV and the soundbar support HDMI CEC functionality, and it has been enabled on both. More about this is also referenced in the article above. 

 

Thanks,

Tanner
