Message: Hi. I have two roku boxes connected to the one tv. One is connected to HDMI 1 and the other is connected to HDMI 2. We need to have 2 roku boxes in our family and we only have 1 tv (for reasons I won't go in to) .
The problem is that the remote unit always controls both roku boxes! And causes interference on the hdmi connection. In other words, both roku boxes want to start working from the one remote.
QUESTION: Why can't each roku remote pair to specific roku box? So as to not interfere with the other nearby roku box?
To add: If you higher-end Roku's with WiFi support, or one with and one without, you can cover the IR sensor on the one that supports the WiFi remote so it cannot see the IR codes.
Thanks for the responses so far. I should have mentioned I have. A roku 3 and roku 4. As I understand, both have RF remotes.
I plan to buy 2 IR remotes on ebay instead.. Which may work. Any thoughts? Can I pair each remote to each device with out interference.
... Is there a way to ensure one ir remote connects to roku 3 and the other roku ir remote connects to the roku 4?...
Hi guys. I made a mistake. It just so happens that both remotes I have for the roku 3 and roku 4 are IR remotes... So in summary I don't have ability to pair. I confirmed this in the batter compartment... There is no small pairing button.
Anyway. Is there a way to ensure one ir remote connects to roku 3 and the other roku ir remote connects to the roku 4?
Appreciate the help.
