im typing this 3 minutes after what happened so i lost my remot to my jvc roku tv so i used apps on phone and pc well i was planning to factory reset it so i could use youtube again and well so when i did it disconnected from wifi then i relized i need a connection to control it from pc or phone so now im **bleep**ed and i cant use the buttons on the tv bc the model i have is only one button/the power button
Anyway the question is can i use a diffrent roku tv remote . exaple like a phillips roku model remote or no?
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.

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.
