Re: Original Roku - Universal Remote Codes

Sat Jan 12, 2013 8:35 pm

I just bought the Sony RM-VZ320 and programmed the Roku code into it. Works perfect for "up/down/right/left" as well as "enter" and "menu".

Anyone know if there's a button for "return" or "back"? I'm using a Roku XS.

Thanks.

We should nip this in the bud: There's no point in buying a universal remote unless it is a learning remote at the very least. Ever.

This one isn't a learning remote. It doesn't have VPT. I don't even see the Roku listed in the code list online.

The Sony Sony RM-VZ320 does have a code listed for Roku under the "Video Accessory" section. I was just wondering whether it gives you a "Return" button.

Sony RM-VZ320 on Roku 2 XS; the "up" button takes you back to previous screen.

There may be no point in buying a universal remote to operate the Roku, unless you have lost or broken the original and don't want to pay an outrageous price for a replacement, or perhaps prefer to use only one remote instead of 5+. Of course I didn't have to go out and buy it, I already had this remote for operating my 50" plasma TV, DVD box with surround sound, and cable DVR box. I also have a box full of other universal remotes from trying to find a single remote that would operate enough functions on all tree devices to not require keeping another remote at my fingertips, and that was before adding the Roku player.

As for finding the code to use, I just tried what I found on the forum. The code is 52371 for those who do not want to search the forums for it. I programmed it to the "vcr" button since I no longer have a vcr.

For those who are confused about bluetooth and IR, the bluetooth only works for playing games. The TV watching function are controlled by IR.

Ignore this if it doesn't interest you. I just wanted to let those who are interested know what worked for me.

Actually, that's not quite correct. The R2 XD and XS are both bluetooth and IR capable. The bluetooth remote is only bluetooth, no IR, so if you're using that remote, all functions are bluetooth controlled. The IR remote works with all Rokus, past and present, but IR will not work for motion control games.

There may be no point in buying a universal remote to operate the Roku, unless you have lost or broken the original and don't want to pay an outrageous price for a replacement

Replacement Roku IR remotes are $9.99, the bluetooth remote is $29.99 and includes a 2GB micro SD card.

Re: the Sony RM-VZ320 - there are some instances where the "up" button doesn't work on the XS. For example, in the Spotify app, "up" doesn't take you back to the previous menu. The "back arrow" button on the XS remote does.

Does the Sony have an equivalent? If I press "menu" I get booted back to the channel page.

Like to help, but you have to give the brand and model # of the universal remote?

Remember, universal remote codes are not universal across universal remotes. :)

Hello,

Is there any way to get the

*

or

BACK

of the Roku remote working on the RM-VZ320?

I think those are the only two functions I don't have? "Return" on the RM doesn't do anything.

Sorry, but no. You would need a IR roku remote, and learning universal remote, which the rm-vz320 is not.

I recommend the RCA RCR313BR. I just got it setup on my Roku and TV. Works awesome! Has all Roku button functionality including Home, Back and Options (asterisk). It is only $10.
Roku code = 53061
