I bought this soundbar when it first came out for TCL Roku TV compatibility, so I wouldn't have to worry about using a second remote. There was a vague implication (product description was less accurate at the time) that it was compatible with the roku remote, which it is not. TCL's biggest selling point over other budget TVs is integrated Roku, so one would expect full integration with the remote. Since the soundbar blocks the TV's IR receiver when placed on the same horizontal surface, I have gone back to using the TV's built-in speakers. The 7-model soundbar is too long for the surface I have my 49" TCL 5-series TV on, so I'm without any viable pass-through options. I have the Roku speakers for my larger living/family room TV, but I'd rather not pay their premium price (premium at my budget) for my smaller bedroom TV that is in a more cramped space.
