Roku 3810x Streaming Stick Wifi/Remote Connection Issues?

After a lot of bashing my head into a wall metaphorically, I have figured out why my Roku Remote (RC-AL2) wouldn’t connect to my Roku 3810x streaming stick. It is the USB cable. If you aren’t using the supplied Mini USB cable which came with the Streaming Stick, nothing will work. Why? Because there is an antenna inside the USB cable. Yep…that’s it. So if you have a Streaming Stick and it is stuck on the “Pairing Remote” screen, you need to make sure you have the actual USB cable which came with the Roku connected. I have it pictured below. If you need a replacement, Roku has them in stock as of this writing at: https://www.roku.com/products/accessories/streaming-stick
