Need advice on Alternative Roku remote

Been having some trouble with my current remote, the battery drains really fast, and the microphone keeps cutting off my search requests

Plus since I have an older Roku tv and a newer streaming stick plugged into it, I essentially have to use 2 remotes

Are there any after market remotes I can use that can control both, has a better battery life, and a more responsive microphone?

Re: Need advice on Alternative Roku remote

I don’t recall seeing an aftermarket Roku remote with a microphone.  I think I have only seen IR aftermarket remotes, and I’m pretty sure you can’t get enough bits per second out of IR to do speech.

You should be able to program your Roku player remote to control the TV – at least to the limited level that Roku remotes control TVs (power & volume). 

Banned but back. Because why not?
