Need help connecting remote

My Roku has been working fine for 6 months. Recently it reset somehow, and now im struggling to reconnect the remote. The pair button does nothing (the light does not flash after 20 seconds holding it down) nor can i use my phone as a remote because the Roku is no longer connected to the same network after the reset. I also cannot connect my phone manually because the Roku is stuck on the 'Please pick a language' screen and i have no way of selecting the language and continuing the set-up to be able to determine the I.P address. Any advice ? Thanks

Re: Need help connecting remote

What model Roku do you have? Every Roku except for the Stick models support IR, so an inexpensive universal remote can be used if it supports Roku players.
