TCL Roku TCL 55S403 IR Remote too clumsy

I have TCL 55S403 Roku TV and its really good. The only problem I have been facing is its IR remote. You have to point exactly to the IR to make it work, its not practical when you have a lot of stuffs around and you have a big room. I was at the Roku accessories page and I am wondering if the remotes on sale in that page works for my TV. I was looking at "Voice Remote with TV Power and Volume Buttons RC127". Is it a wifi remote ? Is my TV wifi remote compatible ? Will that remote work for my TV ?
Thanks in advance.

That one should work, even though it's not advertised as such.. there's other posts here that claim it, at least.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Many have had success pairing a Wifi remote to their sets that initially came with an IR only remote.

I too had the issue of IR receiver being partially blocked by soundbar in front of my TCL TV. A less expensive option that I chose was purchasing an IR Remote Extender on Amazon for $9. I placed the RECEIVER portion of the Extender to the right of my soundbar and the TRANSMITTER part directly underneath the IR RECEIVER on the TCL set. Works like a charm. Responsive remote access from anywhere in a rather large room with no worries about line of sight from the remote. Might be worth a try before investing in a Wifi remote. If you can pair it, it will be more responsive, but you will likely go through batteries more quickly than with a IR only remote.
