Power button - programmable to do 2 things?

Jump to solution

Currently the Roku SS+ remote power button shuts the TV off.   However, since my Roku is powered by an outlet, I would like the remote power button to 1. goto Home, then 2. power off TV.  The reason is to stop/pause the current streaming program I was watching.   Any way to program the remote to do this, so I don't have to program my family on the 2 step process?

No, the Roku remote is not capable of any sort of macro function. You'd need something like a Harmony programmable remote for that. However, since none of the Roku Stick players support an IR remote, there's no way to use a Harmony remote.
