• Most problems connecting to your Roku can be resolved by simply reinstalling RoByte.
• RoByte can only connect if you are on the same wifi network as your Roku device.
In order for RoByte to talk to your Roku, the following must be true:
1. Your Roku must be connected to your home's wifi network.
2. Your iPhone or iPad's wifi must be turned on and connected to the same network as the Roku.
In most cases, RoByte will automatically scan and find your Roku device but there is a small case where if you have a more complicated setup, you may need to manually enter your Roku's IP address to connect.
If you're still unable to connect to your Roku, theres a good chance there's an issue somewhere within your network. Most common cases are Roku devices getting disconnected from your home wifi if it gets unplugged. You can also try reinstalling RoByte to do a fresh scan. Shoot us an email if you're still having trouble.

Ratings and Reviews
Roku phone remote
I lost my remote and I tore my whole house apart looking for it and then someone told me about this app and I got it. Not saying I’m thankful I lost my remote, but I’m so glad I found this app because it’s so convenient and easy. I’m always on my phone when I’m in my room, so I can just turn on the tv just like that. The remote on the app is also really easy to control and figure out. The only thing that got me was they don’t give you the option to control the volume, but you can buy it for 1.99.
I was convinced to purchase pro because I thought it would be an awesome upgrade. What I didn’t know is that the volume wouldn’t work even though my roku supports it. Also, if my family uses it, they have to purchase the upgrades themselves, which I can almost understand but it was not clear before the purchase. Further,if I want it on my iPad, I have to purchase the upgrades again, this I can not understand since it is my own device and I have already paid for the upgrades. By far the most disappointing aspect is the difficulty in finding away to contact support. Perhaps some of my issues are fixable however the only way I could find to contact support was through a review. No contact info on the App Store and if you click on app support you get a website with only basic information and still no way to contact the developer. Hopefully we can all get some support and information moving forward.
Before you download....
Please do not download this app. It is a third party app and charges $1.99 simply to use the volume feature. And it doesn’t end there. It charges also to search the channels via the app page. I was confused. Please download the “Roku” app. I downloaded this one bc it was the first one in the lost. I always trusted the first app on the list when I search for an app. Not anymore. This third party is listed first but it is not the “real” app. I am not sure why Roku allowed this to be but it is wrong. The app does nothing until you purchase the features to use. This is a total rip off. We have to stand up to this kind of ridiculous greediness. Thank God my husband calmed me down and helped me realize that I did not download the same app he downloaded. Totally FREE and there are GREAT FEATURES ON IT.
