ROKU 3 streaming player for 2014-2015
Roku 2015 models are Roku 1, Roku 2 and Roku 3 with the Roku 1 still
offering analog TV connection, Wi-Fi and HDMI TV connection. The Roku 1
does not have the new earbud listening capability on the remote like
the Roku 3 has. The 2015 remote uses Wi-Fi direct so no more
aiming like infra-red I/R remotes. The earbuds plug on the remote
allows private listening. Volume can be adjusted on the remote while
the TV sound is muted. The Roku 3 has ethernet and Wireless plus only
HDMI hookup to TV. Pairing button is under the battery cover. Press and

ROKU 2 Remote Controls
The ROKU 2 remote control on the left comes with the lower-end models
and the remote on the right comes with the higher-end XS model. Notice
the remote that comes with the lower-end models has 11 buttons while
the XS remote has 14 buttons.
Another difference is the lower-end models remote sends IR or infra-red
light like conventional TV remotes, while the XS remote sends RF (radio
frequency) signals. This means with RF you do not need to point the
remote directly at the ROKU box.
ROKU remotes buttons:
At the top of the remote are the HOME button and the BACK button. HOME
takes you to the ROKU home screen and BACK goes back one screen.
Below these two buttons is the four position navigation and selection
button. Up, Down, Left and Right and OK to select.
ROKU uses box art to represent channels and you scan left/right or
up/down to select the one you want.
The PLAY button combines play and pause to play video or pause the
forward has two arrows to the right
while REWIND (reverse scan) has two arrows to the left.
