Is there a pairing button on all Roku remotes?

No, there isn’t a pairing button on every Roku remote. On the other hand, the Roku IR remote controls your Roku device via an infrared light beam.

It may be used with a variety of devices as long as they include an infrared sensor. There is also no pairing button present on the old Roku IR remote.

How could I get my Roku to identify my remote control?

Click and press the Pairing button on the remote and wait for the pairing light in the battery compartment until it flashes. Before retesting, wait about 1 minute for anything to synchronize. Re-pair the device using your phone’s app. Occasionally, the Upgraded Roku remote will drop its pairing and stop working.

Is it possible to sync a separate Roku remote?

To operate the same Roku TV or player, you can use a new remote or a second remote. Scroll to the bottom to Preferences on the left side of the screen in the Main Menu’s section navigation. This way, you can sync separate Roku remotes on your Roku device.
