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.
