Re: pairing a new automatic pairing remote to my Roku SE but it wont pair

Hi @Nannypop

I hope you're doing well.

Have you tried all the troubleshooting steps in this Support link: How to resolve issues with your Roku® simple remote or Roku voice remote?

If the issue persists, please reply here with the serial number of your Roku SE. It can be found at the back or underneath the player itself.

All the best,
Kariza

@Nannypop

Thanks for the response.

We checked the serial number you provided and we noticed that your device is a Roku 1 (2710X) which uses a simple (IR) remote. IR remotes don't have an option to be paired since it uses invisible infrared (IR) light to transmit button presses a short distance.

For a simple remote to operate reliably, it must be pointed directly at the Roku device and there must be nothing blocking the signal from traveling to the front of that device, where the IR receiver is located.

You can also check out our website to know the remotes compatible with your player.

We appreciate your understanding.

All the best,
Kariza

Can you list the model number of the new remote? Look in the battery compartment.

True Roku remotes have model numbers like RC-AL? or RC-EL?. Sounds like you bought an aftermarket universal remote?

You can go with simple $14.99 remote, it won't have tv controls. If you want your Roku remote to control the tv as well, get the $19.99 voice remote. The simple remote will work straight out of the box. Where the voice remote will need to be paired to the Roku first, and then programmed for your tv brand second.
