I purchased and set up the Roku Premiere, not realizing that it contained a 'simple' remote. It has NO power button, volume controls or 'push to talk voice'!! I thought it easiest to buy another controller rather than uninstall the current system and reinstall a package that has a fully functional remote. Our system was rather complex to set up.
If I take the batteries out of the 'simple' remote, put batteries into the new one, will the new remote automatically sinc to the system that is already installed??
Or would I be better off to uninstall current system, return it and buy a version that comes with a fully functional remote??
The Premiere was discontinued in May. Did you buy it before then? If not, did you get a discounted price for a discontinued item? If not, consider returning it.
Yes, they are good devices, but before shelling out another $20 for a Roku Voice Remote, consider how much you will have put into it, and how much you could get a better device today for a comparable amount of money.
Of course, if you bought it prior to discontinuance, or got a great price on it, then yeah, the Voice Remote is the way to go.
