I just purchased the latest Roku Ultra (2020 4800X Model) and overall I like the product but I’m very frustrated that Roku after all these years still does not support volume control on receivers or sound bars unless you are using HDMI-CEC.
Why doesn’t Roku offer a remote with learning capabilities? Remote controls with learning capablities have been around for 20 years.
When you setup your remote here is the message you will see on the Roku setup screen: “Note: Your Roku remote cannot be used to control the power and volume of other devices such as soundbars or A/V receivers.”
I would gladly pay an extra to have this capability included in the remote and feel it should included in Roku’s top streaming model.
