For a short term, do you have an Android or iPhone you can add the Roku app? It has remote capabilities.
That would get you up and running for no cost, and then we can look at troubleshooting the device. Don't depend on the app alone, even if it works great. If you network changes or your Roku loses network connection, you can't use the app. You'll want to get the remote issue resolved. But the app should get you going quickly and for the short term.
