You wait for Roku to maybe send a new simple remote, they have had bad batch of them. If you want to get back streaming faster just a get a cheap universal remote from Target, Walmart or you Dollar store. Just make sure it lists Roku. The benefit of aftermarket universal remote is it will control your tv volume in addition to the Roku express, unlike the Roku simple remote.
