The remote might be bluetooth, that's if there's a pairing button in the battery compartment. If no pairing button, yes it would be IR. To test if the remote is working, with new batteries, point the remote at the cellphone camera and press a key, if you see flashes then remote is fine. That would mean the roku is bad.
