Hi Community Users!

If you're here trying to pair your Roku remote that doesn't have a pairing button, here's a helpful guide to get you set up:

If it doesn't have one, follow these steps to put your Roku streaming device into pairing mode:

From the Settings Menu:

  1. Press Home on your working remote or from the Roku mobile app.
  2. Scroll and select Settings.
  3. Choose Remotes & devices.
  4. Select Add Devices.
  5. Then choose Remote and Continue.
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions to pair your voice remote.

Restarting Your Streaming Device:

  1. Disconnect the power cord from your streaming device.
  2. Wait at least 5 seconds.
  3. Reconnect the power cord.
  4. Once you see the Home screen, follow the steps in the next section to put your voice remote into pairing mode and complete the process.

Putting Your Voice Remote into Pairing Mode:

  • If your voice remote doesn't have a pairing button, press and hold the Back and Home buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds until the status light flashes.

  • For voice remotes with a pairing button, press and hold it for 5 seconds until the status light starts flashing.
