Roku enhanced voice remote compatability

Jump to solution
Have a Roku 3 and was looking to upgrade the remote. Will the Roku enhanced voice remote with the headphone jacks power buttons for tv and gaming buttons work with the Roku 3. I purchased the Roku Ultra 2018 thinking I would be able to play Angry birds on an upgraded Roku only to find out it is not available anymore so may just upgrade the remote.

No, the gaming remote will not control  tv power and volume, if you don't need a headphone jack on the remote get the rc-al7 remote:

I beg you pardon but the Roku standard IR remote and gaming remote are the only two remotes shown on that page which work with Roku 3.

There is no mention of this newer remote (RC-AL7) and its compatibility.  Put complete  model numbers and features as they apply along with all Roku devices supported.   Thanks

Hi,

Thanks for the inquiry.

The Roku enhanced voice remote will not be compatible with your Roku 3. The Roku Gaming Remote and Standard IR Remote are the only remotes that would be compatible with your device. For the available remotes and each device compatibility, visit our Support page here: Player Accessories

Thanks,
Danny

Tivoburkee - Thanks so much for this information!   And if this is monitored by ROKU tech, you need to provide all the specifications in your ACCESSORY link as to which devices work with which remotes! Its sketchy and incomplete!

Im on my way to Walmart!

Thanks for the inquiry.

Remotes on our Accessory Support page state which devices the remotes will work with, as well as if they have TV power and volume buttons and even voice control.

Will the Enhanced voice remote be compatible with my Insignia Roku TV 8401x, model NS-24DR220NA18? I want to be able to listen through headphones and the Private listening through the mobile app is unstable.

Under what roku are compatible with the Enhanced Voice remote it has these Roku tv's listed:

 

Roku TV (model series 6000X, 7000X, C000X, 8000X, A000X)

 

Yours being a 8401x looks like it will work. I can tell you my 2017 Insignia doesn't work.
