I recently purchased a GE 25008 (version 5) Universal Remote from Target in hopes of pairing it for my Roku 3. Unfortunetly after calls to both GE Support (JascoProducts.com) and Roku support it seems inevitable that this remote is not compatible.
I tried asking both GE and Roku for a list of devices that were compatible but neither was able to provide me with that information. All that Roku support could tell me is that the Logitec Harmony Universal remotes were used as their confirmation. The code he provided "N1000" is not compatible with my GE Remote. Those Logitec remotes are expensive and I'm not interested in purchasing a remote for more that 20.00 unless I absolutely have to.
Can someone suggest or confirm for me a compatible Universal Remote Control that will work with the Roku 3?
When looking for an IR remote that'll work with the Roku 3, keep in mind that it's the same as for any Roku device: 1st generation, Roku 2, or Roku 3. If the problem is you can't confirm it'll work on a Roku 3, be aware that if it'll work on a Roku anything, it'll work on a Roku 3. [Edit: Read the following by gonzotek
for additional information about this.]
If the problem is finding something that'll work on any Roku, look for devices that specify Roku. I've seen them as cheap as $10 in places. I don't know about that remote you have specifically, but universal remotes that are compatible can be found, and can be reasonably cheap.
