Remote Info for remotes: RC-41 and RC-ALIR?

Can anyone tell me what Roku models can be used with remotes RC-41 and RC-ALIR?

Thanks

Re: Remote Info for remotes: RC-41 and RC-ALIR?

The rc-41 is the 3500 stick wifi remote, it will pair with newer roku sticks and other models of roku that accept wifi remotes, but isn't very useful without tv controls. The RC-ALIR is an IR remote, which work with roku express, premiere, and ultra's. No sticks. Again isn't useful without tv controls. Unless your rc-alir has tv controls then its a Roku tv iR remote and only works on roku tv's, no stand alone rokus like the ones listed above.

My tests show that onn branded rc-alir (bought from ebay from china) doesn't work with streambar (UK version), or at least it doesn't if there is original voice remote nearby and powered. 

Hope it works with express I have in another location.

Does it have simply Onn-Roku written on it? Or does it Onn-Roku TV on it? Only the former works with express, Roku soundbar, and streambar. I have both Roku soundbar and streambar within two feet of each other, pointing my onn- Roku IR remote controls both at the same time, and their volume. I also tested on 3700 express which doesn't except wifi remotes, all keys work including the volume keys if you have attached to tv with cec feature.

Drat. :-( 

Onn-Roku TV printed on the front, RC-AFIR in battery compartment.

I missed the nuance that I needed to look for Onn-Roku without the TV.

I wonder if it will work with the Roku TV available in UK/Europe (only Hisense brand I think, with the digital OTA supporting DVB-T in SD and HD flavours rather than ATSC of course).

At least it didn't cost much from China.

Sadly all gone.  But I did reorder more carefully, will see what happens.

Managed to get some "ONN Roku" branded IR remotes from China via eBay (not ONN Roku TV).

The ones I got have volume and power buttons and work fine with my streambar (here in the UK).  Will try other devices soon. 

An OK price including postage to UK (taxes correctly charged via eBay and prepaid to UK govt so no import issues). The specific listing is now OOS so I won't post here.

Inside the battery compartment the model number is RC-ELIR, rather than ALIR or AFIR.  At the moment ELIR doesn't return any results in an eBay search (haven't tried other marketplaces).
