The only way to enter numbers on a Roku is with the Roku phone/tablet app. And that is mainly limited to when you are at a 'keyboard' screen (logins and similar.) The IR or wireless remote codes for Roku do NOT have number support.
I got beta app rolling through a roku to vizio tv. All fine there. But the only remote I can pare to roku is theirs. So, when watching Xfinity through roku the only way to change channels is with roku remote and that is terrible. You literally have to back out into guide and up/down to next channel. No numbers on roku remote. No last channel on roku remote. Is there any remote that will pare with roku to work Xfinity beta?
just press the * button on the roku remote
