Roku soundbar and enhanced remote

I have a Roku Ultra with an enhanced remote and a Roku Soundbar with a standard remote,  I will be buying a universal remote for my Roku Ultra.  Will I be able to pair the enhanced remote with my Roku Soundbar?

I read that I was supposed to get the enhanced remote with the Roku Soundbar, but it only came with the standard remote.  So I just want to make sure.

The roku sound bar sold at walmart and has ONN brand comes with standard Roku remote, and is $20 cheaper. The Roku branded Sound bar has enhanced voice remote and cost is $20 more.

 

Yes, the ultra Wifi remote will pair with your Sound bar.

I bought my Roku Soundbar at Best Buy.  It isn't the ONN brand from Walmart.

I don't believe the Sound Bar will pair with the Wi-Fi remote. Mine certainly won't.

Re: Roku soundbar and enhanced remote

Then its not a Roku soundbar, all roku soundbars can be paired to wifi voice remote. Walmart sells a Roku Onn Smart soundbar that comes with IR remote, but can be paired to separately sold voice remote. But Walmart also sells non-roku Onn branded soundbars that won't work with any roku remote IR or wifi.

Re: Roku soundbar and enhanced remote

Oh, I think I know what product I bought. Especially in light of the fact that I bought it directly from Roku.

And, the Wi-Fi remote that easily pairs with my TCL Roku TV in my bedroom will not pair with the Roku Soundbar.

Re: Roku soundbar and enhanced remote

There are 4 models of Roku soundbar, I own three of them, the Roku Smart Soundbar, Onn Smart Soundbar, and Roku Streambar. They all have wifi remotes paired to them The only one I don't have is newest Streambar Pro, which comes with enhanced Voice wifi remote. 

I say keep trying, unplug other Roku during pairing so it doesn't pair to the wrong Roku.
