Re: Roku Remote Quick Buttons

Jump to solution

Does this community share info on what buttons are found at what retailers currently? If I can't change the preset buttons (and I'd like to join my voice to the MANY others who request this), maybe I can shop my way to a remote with the most buttons that I use. For example, I have an older Roku Stick whose remote has Netflix, Amazon Prime, Sling, and Google Play. I use Netflix and Amazon. But I don't remember where I bought it (and it was several years ago). Last week I bought a Roku Premiere (#3920) from Best Buy. It has Netflix, ESPN+, Hulu, and Sling. I use Netflix, and Hulu a little, the others not at all. And I wish we had options for the newer players on the streaming scene, including Disney+ and YouTube TV. 

So - does anyone know what buttons are currently on devices sold at Walmart? Target? Others? Which ones are on devices sold through the Roku website or Amazon? 

This seems like the only possible way to get around this issue - for now.

Only things we're sure of is every remote will have a Netflix key. And roku bought at Walmart will have a Vudu key, which they own.  There hasn't been a Amazon key on a roku remote since Amazon started selling their own streamer.

If you don't mind using a IR remote you could get Inteset 422-3 Universal remote, with this remote and a boat load of Advanced codes(EFC), you code map individually all kinds of channels, of course you'll have to remember what and where they are on the remote. This are some of the codes available:

 

Google play 00022

Rdio 00026

Youtube 00032

Feature Free 00043

Deezer 00054

Ch Store 00224

Prime Video 00082

TED 00084

PS VUE 00085

Spotify 00086

Pandora 00088

Red Bull 00090

CBS AA 00128

Yupp Tv 00130

Vudu 00138

Showtime 00149

Hulu 00151

Hbo Now 00153

WWW network 00180

Crackle 00181

The CW 00182

Happy Kids Tv 00184

Starz 00222

Slingtv 00229

Att TV 00247

Roku Ch 00118

Fandango now 00133

Netflix 00148

ESPN 00187

Disney + 00070

To map these to a key on Inteset remote, first you use setup code 03061, and:

1. device key

2. press and hold SET for two blinks, release

3. enter 9 9 4

4. tap SET for one blink

5. enter 5 digit code

6. pick a key

As you can see there isn't one for Youtube TV yet.

If you want to save some money on the universal remote that takes those codes, theres the Insignia NS-RMT415, it looks like the Inteset remote, but it doesn't have backlighting and isn't a learning remote. But you can find them on ebay for under $10.

Just bought the "Roku Voice Remote with TV controls"

The picture on the box CLEARLY INDICATES that there are 4 buttons with no channel names printed on them, which is the sole reason I bought it. The device inside the box does not match that which is pictured.  Nice bait and switch 

What is  your problem with not giving the customer programmable keys?

Yes, it would be nice to be able to reprogram dead-app buttons and apps I don't use.  It would also be nice if the remote in one room was consistent with the remote in the other room.

When will we be able to program the 4 buttons on the bottom.

Jump to solution

I would love to have the ability to set the 4 buttons at the bottom to  YouTubeTV, NetFlix, Prime, ESPN (and even have stickers would be a plus!)

Never, they receive a $1 per button, per remote from each of those services, it helps keep cost down.
