I agree! Ridiculous there’s no volume or power button. My other Roku remote does. I will be returning and purchasing an older version I guess. Or just purchasing a Firestick. Just another gimmick to make you purchase more items!
A check of Roku's pages and retailer pages can quickly tell you which models come with which buttons. (And the box mine came in had 2 pictures of the remote.) I personally have no use for TV controls on each media player, so that wasn't a feature that interested me, but if it interests you, choose wisely.
I have both a Firestick and a Roku. They both have power buttons and volume buttons. I don't have a smart TV. I will just return this one and get an older version that does. I'm not understanding the wifi voicwe remote. I have Dish Network and a regular tv.
Don't get stuck on the idea of older. As mentioned above, if you go old enough, TV controls on the Roku remote wasn't even an option. It's really a question of which specific model. (BTW, I don't have a smart TV either.)
Wi-fi remotes don't have to be pointed at the Roku and have features like searching by voice. (Which you don't have to use.) Some let you plug headphones into the remote. None of these features were big deals for me so I went with a very basic model.
Everyone has their own hot-button features. Some people really want 5Ghz wi-fi, some don't care, some want Ethernet, 4K, etc.
Same issue here. I hope it was clearer in the description. Your solution to purchase another remote makes no sense. Remotes cost around $8, getting the next Roku one model up its $10, so I guess best option it to return the Premier and purchase the next model up
I'd like to second this comment. i bought a Premiere to replace a 3 year old Roku streaming stick that was overheating and getting wonky. Very disappointed with the chintzy remote - very basic for an item named "Premiere".
