@coreyhanks 

The answer is: maybe.

This is tricky, since Roku doesn't actually make the TVs. Roku supplies the "smart TV" interface that the TV uses, but not the actual hardware.

You can buy remotes from Roku that will work with any Roku TV. https://www.roku.com/products/accessories/roku-tv

You could infer that all Roku TV remotes are compatible. However, that's not necessarily the case. You see, the remotes that come with the TVs are IR remotes, but the ones you buy directly from Roku are WiFi Direct remotes. Roku TVs support both types. If all the Roku TV manufacturer IR remotes were compatible, Roku would probably sell them. So, I'm leaning away from one working on a different brand. But, they mght.

Perhaps @Tivoburkee knows. He's the go-to guy for remotes.

Re: i lost my remote and made a stupid mistake

It has to be a roku tv remote, any of the following brands of roku tv use the same code set, tcl, insignia, philips, jvc, hitachi, haier, sanyo, westinghouse, magnavox, onn, and element. Just stay away from hisense and sharp roku tv remotes, which are useless on the above brands. 

 

Roku wifi voice remote which can be purchased at walmart, best buy or amazon once paired will work with your roku tv.

The Voice Remote will prompt you to pair when you boot the Roku and insert batteries into the remote.
