Re: Setting up a Roku without a remote

Sorry, it can't be done.  Unless you know the last network it was connected to and you can configure your network to match you're out of luck.  On the off chance it's a model with an Ethernet jack you may be able to connect it with an Ethernet cable, but I'm not even sure that would work.

P.S. - cheap universal remotes can be found almost anywhere, but they will only work on models that aren't sticks that plug directly into your TV without any cable.
