Need help. I have a Sharp Aqus and am using the optical connections. I think I just need the basic setup to work and can’t find it anywhere.

Hi Pamalot, the Playbar reads IR for the volume controls, so you'll need to see if your Roku remote is capable of sending volume signals over IR. If you have a model number or other details about the remote, we can check it out here.

There's a thread here with a similar question, it may be for the same version of Roku.

Now you should be good to go.
Fascinating. Would be nice to know exactly what pressing the purple button actually does.
