I have a question. Does anyone else have the trouble of misplacing the remote and look for it before giving up and resorting to the app remote only to sit down and see the remote laying somewhere and realize the only reason you couldn't find it is because of its color black. I think,personally,the remote should be purple.
Just as a nice side fact, some Roku devices (such as the Roku Ultra 4670R) have a remote finder button. When you press the button, the remote will make a sound for you to locate it when it's lost. Mine currently plays the Game of Thrones theme song!
