I cannot get my remote to pair it blinks but the tv never recognizes it no matter what I cannot figure out how to private message anyone all the instructions I follow are just wrong and there is never a way to talk to anyway and I’m super frustrated it’s a brand new remote.
What model Roku? When you say TV, is it a Roku TV or are you trying to get a Roku remote to control another TV brand?
Most Roku TVs come with an IR remote, which does not require pairing. You just have to have a clear line of sight between the remote and the TV IR receiver window, which is usually somewhere along the bottom edge.
