Hi,

Is the status light on the Roku ON? If not have you got the power adapter plugged in and ON?

If the status light on the front of your Roku player flashes once each time you

press a remote button, the problem is not with the remote.

If it does not flash have you tried re- pairing your remote with the Roku unit?

Pairing your remote control:

You can manually pair the Roku remote by following these steps:

(Pairing button in battery compartment)

Prepare your Roku player to pair by unplugging the

power adapter and plugging it back in.

Open the Roku remote battery compartment

Place the Roku remote in close proximity with your Roku

player.

Press and hold the pairing button inside the battery

compartment for 3 seconds.

Wait about 10 seconds for the remote LED to stop

flashing.

Try using the Roku remote again.

If only that worked, it would be great. Having tried all the solutions offered here and on other sites, the only thing that ever seemed to work was leaving out the batteries for a month.

Paired automatically when I inserted batteries, but lost it when I restarted the Roku3 device itself.

I will learn the lesson and never reset again. Remote now has a brand new set of batteries waiting for it - in a month.

Roku tells me that the newer remotes(with earphone jack) are wifi and not IR like most remotes. You can't have more than one wifi remote, but you can use an IR remote with a wifi one. Why would anyone design such a 'feature'?

The green light on my remote just keeps flashing; it never pairs with the Roku stick it was once paired with. I can control the stick with the iPhone app but not the Roku remote.

I thought my remote had simply stopped working and then discovered it wasn't bust but I had the same problem with it refusing to pair. Eventually after a lot of failed attempts I noticed that the enhanced remote connects using wireless rather than infra red, so I tried connecting my Roku to my router wirelessly instead of via ethernet cable and voila - it now works perfectly again!
