Programming your Spectrum remote to your Roku TV can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be.
With a few simple steps, you can easily program your Spectrum remote to control your Roku TV, allowing you to navigate through channels and streaming services with ease.
To begin, you’ll need to find the code for your Roku TV. This code is unique to your TV model and can be found on both Spectrum and Roku’s website. No need to worry, I’ve provided the working codes in this post.
Once you have the code, you can begin programming your remote.
One of the easiest ways to program your Spectrum remote to your Roku TV is by using the remote’s auto-search feature. This feature allows your remote to search for the correct code for your TV automatically.
All you have to do here is to initiate the action, and your remote will take care of the rest. If the auto search method doesn’t work in your case, don’t worry; there are still other ways to program your remote.

It’s important to note that not all functions of your Roku TV may be available with the Spectrum Guide Remote.

Programming Universal CLIKR-5 Remote to Roku TV

After it turns off, press the power button on the Spectrum universal remote to turn on your Roku TV.

Why is My TCL Roku TV Not Responding to Remote?
If you’re having trouble getting your TCL Roku TV to respond to your remote, there could be a few reasons why. Here are some things to check:
The most common reason why your remote isn’t working is dead batteries. Make sure you have fresh batteries in your remote. If your remote still isn’t working, try replacing the batteries again with a different set.
Line of Sight
Your TCL Roku TV remote uses infrared (IR) technology to communicate with your TV. Make sure there is nothing blocking the line of sight between the remote and the TV.
If you’re having trouble with the remote, try moving closer to the TV or adjusting your position so that you have a clear line of sight.
Other electronic devices in your home can interfere with the signal between your remote and your TCL Roku TV. Try turning off other devices in the room to see if that helps.
If your remote still isn’t working, it’s possible that it’s not paired correctly with your TCL Roku TV. Follow the instructions in your TV’s user manual to pair your remote with your TV.
Sometimes, software issues can cause problems with your remote. Try resetting your TCL Roku TV to see if that resolves the issue. You can do this by going to Settings >> System >> Power >> System Restart.
If none of these solutions work, you may need to contact TCL customer support for further assistance.
