Use Roku App with wired connection

Hi all,

Has anyone been able to use a wired connection with their Roku TV and also use the roku remote app on their phone? The app only seems to work for me when both the phone and TV are connected to wifi which is probably fine, but the techie in me would love to stick to a wired connection and have the phone app work with it.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Use Roku App with wired connection

It should work as long as your Wi-Fi network and your wired network are the same network.  You may have wireless/Wi-Fi isolation enabled in your router which blocks wireless devices from communicating with wired devices.
