Connect Roku Remote To PC

Currently I'm trying to pair my roku remote to my PC. I want to use it kind of like a game controller or a mouse and see if I can control other things with it. Kinda like this:

Remote -> PC

not Remote -> Roku -> App -> PC


Can anyone help me with finding a solution?

Re: Connect Roku Remote To PC

There is no solution. It can't be done. The Roku remote uses WiFi Direct to connect to the Roku, and your PC is not equipped for that protocol. And even if it had it, the Roku remote will only connect to a Roku device.
