It took a couple of tries to get the new remote to sync with my Roku stick. Operator error for sure. The thing that surprised me was that it controls my TV's volume, without any additional set up. Lucky I guess, being that my TV isn't a smart tv. The bonus is the voice control feature. We haven't really tried it out fully but seems to work well with the commands that we've used.
I would recommend this replacement remote for anyone that has a Roku Stick that uses wifi for control.
