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.
