Which current models support IR remote?

I want to use a universal remote to control Roku and Denon receiver.  Which current Roku models support IR?  Any of 3810R, 3921RW, and/or 4661R?

Anything that isn't a stick.

Thanks but I don't know what that means.  Any chance you could clarify?  (Model #s would be great since the product names seem to get reused over time with different model numbers with different hardware.)

He's saying if it is a "Streaming Stick" branded model, then it doesn't support IR. Express, Premieres, and Ultras in the current line do. All the TVs do as well.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roku <-- This has a feature comparison of every model since the originals. If you don't see IR in the Remote Column, then it doesn't support it.

Thank you, that's helpful.  

The Wikipedia page isn't yet updated with the 2018 lineup, for example missing are the 3921RW (current Premiere+) 4661R (current Ultra) so it's unclear what changes, if any, are in these 2018 product updates.

The IR remotes should work with the 2018 models.  Only the stick versions as noted previously will not work with IR, due to their nature.

Re: Which current models support IR remote?

If you shine a very bright flashlight into the head/front of a current Stick+ Remote you will see an IR emitter. So if the Stick’s remote is WiFi only as stated why is there an IR emitter in it with the dark opaque front window????

Im assuming the Stick+ remote’s hardware does provide IR capabilities but it’s firmware programming won’t allow it. 

Also if the Stick+ does not support TV Pwr & volume (IR Commands) why during its set up does it provide a list of compatible TV’s to choose from. Seems that doesn’t make sense!

BUMMER!!

This is rather old thread and IR commands they dealing with were  Roku commands not TV. Yes the current Roku remotes with TV power and volume keys control multiple tv brands by IR.

Do all the Rokus which support IR remotes use the same IR transmission coding?  (For the buttons with the same function, of course).

As far as I can tell, yes. In fact, they may respond to codes that are not on some remotes. My Roku4 will do page up/down on some screens.
