Thanks for the information.

Please be aware that the Roku Express uses an IR remote. IR remotes require a direct line of sight from your Roku remote to your device sensor which is on the front, which should not be obstructed.

For more information about troubleshooting your IR remote, visit our Support page here: How do I resolve problems with my Roku IR (infrared) remote?

Please keep us posted what you find out.


Thanks,
Danny
