Does Roku TV only use Roku speakers?
Surround Sound – On their own, you can only use the Roku TV Wireless Speakers with a Roku TV. However, thanks to a firmware update, you can use them with any TV by pairing them with a Roku Smart Soundbar, Wirelessly pairing the speakers to the soundbar configures them to act as rear surround channels for room-filling surround sound.
And since the speakers pair with the soundbar in this configuration, a Roku TV isn’t necessary. As rear surround satellites, the Roku TV Wireless Speakers provide additional audio channels when playing surround content along with a Roku Smart Soundbar. They also enhance stereo content in one of two ways.
The Movies & TV mode mixes stereo content to create a surround sound effect, pulling some audio from the soundbar and sending it to the surround speakers. The Music mode expands the stereo signal from the soundbar to the surround speakers, playing left and right channels on both the soundbar and the satellites for a much bigger (but not surround) sound field.

- The connected TV automatically mutes and the sound starts to stream via the headphones.
- Few Roku TV models ship with such a remote, but the Roku Ultra, Streaming Stick+, and Streambar Pro all come with headphone-jack-equipped remotes.
