Got it, allow me a moment, please.
Please follow this instruction to re-pair your remote to the Roku:
1. Remove the back cover from your Roku remote.
2. Find the pairing button, underneath the batteries.
3. Bring the remote as close as you can to your Roku device.
4. Hold down the pairing button for 3 seconds.
Let me know how everything is going.

*****, give me a minute, please, to review
*****, there is one spot that looks like a button.
Just in the middle of the remote, behind the battery High Energy
Can you press it?
But remember to come up as close as you can to the Rocku box

There’s no button that pressed. I’m seeing on the box not comparable with Roku streaming stick. Is this a Roku streaming stick?

just a second, please
If you are looking to replace or upgrade your Roku remote, you can purchase a new remote on the Roku accessories store. Take note if your Roku device is listed as a supported device for the desired remote before making a purchase.

Can 1 remote be paired with to TV ‘s?
I have a remote for my Tzv in the living. Can I use the same remote for my TV in the bedroom? Both TV is hooked to a Roku device.

Let me specify it
You can use your remote only with one TV, that is supposed to be used with it.

Can you recommend a remote that works with a Roku stick and Sony TV?
