So its express and should accept IR remotes, if you have two remote not controlling the roku then its the probably the roku at fault. You can test the remotes by pointing it at your cellphone camera if you see flashes its emitting IR commands.
These IR remotes can't have tv controls like power and volume keys, if they do then they're roku tv IR remotes and are worthless on roku express.
