Re: Problems with connecting tv to use phone as remote

Hi @Curlyphil,

Roku TV remotes are provided by the TV manufacturers, not by Roku.

You might be able to find these locally at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, and so on, or online at Amazon, eBay, and Roku itself. These are point-and-click remotes that connect to the TV by WiFi-direct and must be linked to the TV in order to communicate.

Warm Regards,

Re: Problems with connecting tv to use phone as remote


Roku TV remotes from any Roku TV manufacturer or from third party suppliers largely use the same standard set of IR commands and are interchangeable for use on Roku TVs from other manufacturers.

* EXCEPTION: Remotes from HiSense and Sharp can only be used with HiSense and Sharp Roku TVs because they issue a different set of IR commands than the rest of the Roku TV manufacturers.  The Roku TVs from HiSense and Sharp themselves, though, support both sets of IR commands so they can be used with remotes from any Roku TV manufacturer.
