It is the improved remote from the Roku1 series with additional back/info/instant replay buttons. It is infrared and works with all models of Roku digital video players, old and new. If you have the oldest 9-button remote circa pre-2010, this 12-button one is a step up.
It works with Roku 2 players as well, with all channels but "Angry Birds" game - only the Bluetooth gaming remote can. On the other hand, if you are tired of your BT remote from going "to sleep" and taking 5-10 seconds to reconnect - or that it seems to last only couple of weeks on pair of new batteries - infrared is the way to go, it lasts many months and never falls asleep.
I got this overpriced remote to replace a lost one for our original roku. (I used the iphone app roku remote for a while until we made sure the lost remote couldn't be found, but it was frustrating to not have a real remote.) This one is over priced at twenty bux (what I paid). I'm not sure if a generic universal remote could have been made to work with a roku, but you can get a basic one for like ten bux. The price a Roku 2 can be bought these days, this price is way too high for just 14 buttons.
The old remote that we lost had a button on it that had a replay symbol (a circled arrow) that when pressed bounced the video playback about 10 seconds back almost immediately. Perfect for when you miss something someone said. Now you have to press the left arrow, and then play, and there is a 5-10 second pause while it buffers before it begins again. Annoying. (#firstworldproblems)
When I received the remote in the mail I wondered if I was sent the wrong model, but even the sticker on the plastic wrapping indicated it was a "Replay Remote". False marketing.
I have tried three or four different kinds of glue, to attempt to put the OK button back on, with no success. The best we have done is put a square of duct tape over the entire arrow/OK piece, which sucks.
The last time I ordered these I ordered four. This time I am only ordering one, to replace the one my precious children ruined while over at a friend's house for five seconds.
We ordered ours directly from the Roku site since it was on sale at the time. Also, there is a Roku remote control app for most smartphones (I have used one for the Android).

Just as expected. Works great, just like the original that I had to replace. Doesn't have to be pointed directly at the Roku to respond.Published 1 month ago by Jessica☃
