Using Roku 4K remote to turn off bose soundbar

Sun Jul 21, 2019 12:28 pm

Hello,

Is the Roku 4K remote capable of turning On/Off a Bose soundbar 700?
I'm assuming it can be used to turn ON or OFF the volume for sure.

TV is connected to Bose Soundbar via Optical cable. I can choose to connect through HDMI ARC if needed (port is available).

I currently use Amazon Fire stick and that can control the volume of the soundbar but it doesn't turn ON/OFF the power.
If Roku does support that, I would like to switch over to Roku.

That isn't an accurate enough description of your remote. My Ultra is 4K, but it's older and doesn't have a power button or IR support for other devices. Newer remotes have one or both. If your remote has a power button and support controlling other devices with IR, there should be a code that works. If it doesn't have a power button, then I believe the answer is no.

Even if the remote had tv power and volume keys, it is only for TV's. It may be able to control the soundbar via hdmi cec.
