Re: need help sorting out a remote for my older roku

Hi @kaitlin4599,

Greetings from the Roku Community!

We're glad to assist you with your inquiry. Please be advised that the Roku 3 4230X uses a simple Roku remote that uses an invisible infrared (IR) light to transmit the button presses over a short distance. If your mom's Roku streaming stick uses a voice remote, it may not be compatible with the Roku 3 4230X. The Roku voice remote has a voice button, while the Roku simple remote doesn't have one. You can check out this support article to learn more about Roku remotes and visit the Roku store for a list of Roku remotes.

We hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Eunice
