Roku voice remote not recognizing App Name

Jump to solution

I recently purchased the Roku Express 4k+ (3941X, does not appear in product link options) with remote that has voice control. I have been able to launch most all channels successfully. However, one channel, HiDive (pronounced like "High Dive") will not launch properly. I am sure there are other apps where the name is not recognized. Is there a way to address this?

I would think the easiest way would be to allow for apps to be given a custom name by the user, if desired. I was unable to find this capability. Alternatively, if I just knew what the remote expected, then I could vocalize that, but I have guessed all alternate pronunciations of which I could think and none worked.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Was able to open the HIDive Channel by saying either command. (spell out HI)

1. Open "H" "I" Dive 

2. Open "H" 'I" Dive Channel.
