TCL Roku TV

Fri Jun 09, 2017 3:43 pm

If this is a dumb question I apologize, is there a conflict with having 2 Roku TV's in the same house, I understand the remotes are wi-fi. Do they have an address assigned to that TV?

Not a dumb question, but not a problem. Even if the remotes are on the same frequency they are still paired with the corresponding player.I have 3 Roku players thoughout the house, and sometimes I plug in my Stick as well. That makes four, and I've never encountered any remote issues.

I don't think any of the TVs use a WiFi remote. They're all IR.

Our TCL RokuTV (TCL model 28S3750, Roku model 5119X) has an IR remote that consistently controls other roku devices that were never paired with it so we use the Roku mobile app instead.

Good to know, I'll give it a try.

That's correct, Roku TV controls are infrared IR, I have 2 TV and the controls can be used on any of them. But they're not wireless

TCL Roku TV 55P607 uses a Wifi remote. The 55P605 comes with an IR remote. But, even then you can purchase a Wifi remote separately and pair it to the P605. Both sets have IR sensors. For P607 this is probably for ON/OFF and then Wifi is used for other commands.

My Samsung JU7100 is like this (obviously, not a Roku TV). It uses IR for the power button, but Bluetooth for all other functions. And it's a pain in the behind, often losing pairing for no reason.
