Remote for Roku

Remote for Roku


Remote for Roku acts just like your physical Roku remote, only better:

-Auto-scan of all wired Roku devices, manual scan for wireless devices
-Navigate directly to any channel using Channel button (New)
-Supports multiple Roku players
-New Back, Info & Replay buttons
-Landscape & portrait
-Fast text entry
-Home screen widget
-Multiple Skins (New: custom skins)


To use your own custom image as a background skin, copy any image into the RokuRemote folder in your SD card. The image name must be one of the following: Custom1.jpg, Custom2.jpg or Custom3.jpg. You can then select Custom1, Custom2 or Custom3 for your skin in Device Preferences. If you select a custom image from the preferences screen that doesn’t exist, the default skin will be used. The bundled images are 320 by 480 pixels, but any image should work and scale to fit the screen.

*** Troubleshooting ***
If you see lag between the app and the Roku, please restart your phone/tablet and the Roku. This will resolve 95% of issues. Should only need to do this every once in a while.

PLEASE - if you have connectivity problems, visit the troubleshooting section of this page:

You can even try the connectivity test before you buy.

Recent changes:
- Updated discovery code to work with more recent phones. Also made Roku device list screen more responsive
- Better handling of devices with and without menu buttons
- Removed the Extras feature since Roku has stopped supporting the method used to get those functions

Good, not perfect Basically it's really good except a message saying something like "auto detect failed" whenever I switch between my home screen and the app, it covers some of the controls so it's annoying. If it got fixed I would update my rating to 5*. This connects to my roku stick instantly every time and it looks good. I like the haptic feedback on the keys. Update: crashes when I press 'back' to the home screen every time so I use the home button. Not a big deal but annoying still.
