I know I'm late to the party on this thread. I have a Roku2 with the BT
remote. I was very surprised to find out that it also has an IR receiver
and will respond to commands from my older IR Roku remote. I had been
using a Harmony remote with my original Roku. When I swapped in the
Roku2, I didn't have to change anything on the Harmony. I do not have a
Roku3 to know if they have an IR receiver.
