Some of the Roku enhanced remotes are designed with infrared and wireless technology. This technology allows the user to control different aspects of your tv as well as the Roku streaming device. When you setup your Roku enhanced remote and the Roku player, then you must control the power on or off button and volume button of several different models and brands.
Roku enhanced remote is built in such a manner that it controls the power and volume on your TV. Unfortunately, you cannot use this remote to control other devices that are connected to your television sets like a soundbar or an audio or video receiver.
Although you can make use of the HDMI CEC technology to give commands to the soundbar or AVR in order to control the volume indirectly. In order to make it work, all the devices on the television should support HDMI CEC and you need to enable it on the devices as well. You must read the documentation of your device to understand whether the soundbar, AVR, and TV are compatible with this kind of technology or not.
At the time of activation and initial setup, you can setup your Roku remote for controlling the power and volume functions. The set up can be done later as well by going to the settings, then remote, and after that setup remote for TV control.
At the time of the remote setup, your Roku player will try to detect the TV brand and will start programming your Roku enhanced remote. You will have to follow a step by step procedure for entering the brand manually as well as to program your Roku remote.
When all the details are collected using HDMI. Then, only the device’s brand that is joined to your Roku player can get connected.
In case you are here to setup Roku enhanced remote to control my tv for the very first time, then you will need an internet connection. After that, select the type of display and then a screen will come up in front of you and will ask you to check the settings of the remote. This is the first thing that you need to do for setting up the remote for turning on and off the power function of the TV and for increasing and decreasing the volume of the TV.
Before you start with the process, increase the volume of your television up to a point where it is audible. Point the remote towards the TV while selecting the volume level.
Once the initial setup and activation process is over, then you can go to the settings to setup the remote to control the TV as well. You must not connect the soundbar or AVR directly with your TV at the time of setup as it becomes difficult to recognize the television brand that way.
