        Answer

        The sidekick has 8 buttons that can be programmed individually. The buttons on the sideckick are power, volume +/-, arrow up/down, change input, A, B and you would traditionally program all these buttons to control 1 additional device to the roku. However, you could program these buttons to several different devices since it is a learning remote. IE - you could use power to turn on the tv, A to turn on the comcast box, B to turn on the receiver with the volume going to the receiver, the input change to the tv, and the arrows to the comcast box. You may not be able to get all of your devices in a way that makes sense, but you can program each button individually. As for the PS3/PS4, if you have an IR remote for the PS3/PS4 you can program the sidekick for it, but you would need that to do it.

        Answer

        It "learns" from other remotes so a Roku TV remote should not be a problem. As far a physically fitting on different remotes it comes with 4 frames for the different Roku remotes. Very simple to assemble in 2 steps.

      Can I use this remote to replace my existing ROKU (stream stick) remote? I hate that I can't push in channel numbers   (3 Answers)

        You can technically program the limited number of keys to do any single action and you could use it to only use the most basic Roku remote functions without the remote, but you need the Roku remote itself to first copy the function. Its not a universal remote in the sense it does not have a built in universal code for devices - it only allows you to copy a remotes button function, button for button.

      Does anyone know for certain. Will this work with Roku Streaming Stick? Thank you   (5 Answers)

        Yes it definitely works with the streaming stick. It comes with adapters to allow it to fit on just about every roku remote they offer. This is just a very simple universal remote that attaches to your roku remote to give it the one remote feel.

        An older Samsung Galaxy S-series phone with an IR Blaster will emulate any remote you need for any device needed with a decent remote app.
