Has anyone found a way to program a button to go directly to YouTube TV on Roku devices? Haven't seen a shortcut button anywere.

As of update 9.3 there isn't one yet. Searching advanced codes(efc) on UEI remote did come up with IR commands for three programmable voice buttons, like 1 & 2 on the ultra roku remote, but there is a third, call it 3. That hold voice search prompt. Like You Tube tv. It doesn't change to YTTV instantly like other discrete app, it announces its changing and there's a count down to when it actually changes. It works on both console rokus and roku tv like tcl.

I do not have pronto hex for these, using Inteset 422-3 remote, using either roku code 03061 or roku tv code 14398 the advanced codes are #1 00038, #2 00040, and #3 00042. Once you have these mapped to keys on the UEI remote, to program them with a voice search prompt, you will need to use a wifi roku remote with voice search key. Speak into the microphone if you like the results you press 1, 2, 3 key on the UEI remote to memorize the search. Once UEi remote has these commands you can teach it to any learning remote you wish. The actual searches are stored in the roku itself, these commands just recalls them.

To map efc to key:

1. roku device key
2. press and hold set or magic for two blinks
3. enter 9 9 4
4. tap set or magic for one blink
5. enter 5 digit code
6. pick a key

Other UEi made remotes with proper setup code are the OFA urc-7880 or Insignia rmt-415. In addition to Inteset 422-3
