My remote was broken a while back (dog ate it) but I had been successfully still using my Roku express via my phone using the remote feature in the android app. We recently had our network switched and after when I went to use the Roku the phone couldn't connect to the device (I assume this is because they were trying to connect with different networks).
I thought if I removed the device entry on the phone it would re-find it; no luck. So I tried to reset the Roku hoping it would try to find a new network (i.e. the one my phone is on) and again no luck; it now is stuck at the choose your language screen.
So without a remote, is there anyway to connect to the Roku to setup the network?
If its a 3700 express it won't accept wifi remotes, but it will work with cellphone app once you get them connected to the same internet network and password. You don't need a true roku remote, get a cheap universal remote, since the express uses IR remote, just make sure it lists roku.
