Roku android app dumb TV power and volume

Can the Roku android app control the power and volume of a dumb Toshiba tv? I really want a lighted Roku remote. The phone app sorta works, but without tv power and volume control, it doesn't solve the problem.

Re: Roku android app dumb TV power and volume

The roku remote usually controls the TV via IR.  Most phones don’t have IR emitters.  There are A FEW, but maybe not enough for Roku to worry about.  Then again, if you have a phone with an IR emitter, maybe it came with or can run some universal remote app that includes Roku codes?
