Is there ayone out there that has figured out what the code is for the remote control for the Roku box yet.
Thanks for the help with this issue.
You don't need the IR code, just an IR emitter. I have a Slingbox Solo which is connected to my Roku (via the component RGB RCA cables for video) and also connected to my DirecTV DVR (via the S-video cable). I then connect two sets of audio Red & White cables, one from the Roku and one from the DirecTV DVR to a double Y-cable which connects to the Slingbox Solo audio input. My standard IR emitter cable from the Slingbox has two "fingers", normally to attach on the top and bottom of your cable box, etc. However I use one "finger" each for the DirecTV DVR and Roku. I can now control the Roku and the DVR from my Slingbox player software on my PC/laptop. This allows me to watch TV and DVR recordings as well as Netflix, Pandora, etc, outside the U.S.A. Just remember to turn off your DirecTV DVR or other TV source when using the Roku player so the the TV sound doesn't interfere with the Roku sound. You can also use the composite video in place of the component video.
Use the Slingbox player Settings/Setup Assistant function to define the two devices (Roku and DirecTV as in my case) and then use Connect/Video Input to choose the device you want to watch.
I now can control 2 devices from a Slingbox Solo and watch my Netflix Instant library outside the U.S.A. And with the S-video output and headphone output from my laptop connected to my TV I can watch everything on the big screen.
