Universal Logitech Harmony Elite Remote Control


The Logitech Harmony is the best YouTube TV remote control, especially for Roku. The one that we found best amongst the range of Logitech Harmony hub-based remote controls is the LOGITECH HARMONY ELITE. 

The distinguishing feature of the Logitech Harmony Elite is that it allows you to control, in addition to Roku, various other devices including smart home devices as well.

Another speciality of the Logitech Harmony Elite is that it allows the user to pair up multiple devices together into specific activities. It is the most advanced universal TV remote, which you can benefit from, without any custom installations.

The LOGITECH HARMONY ELITE has the capability to support up to 15 of your smart home devices. Plus, you can also connect it with smart home assistants and enable its voice control feature.

The LOGITECH HARMONY ELITE comes with a hub and a remote and can also run by means of a mobile app. The hub component of the LOGITECH HARMONY ELITE is similar to the HARMONY HOME HUB, launched back in 2014.

Its wide-angle IR Transmitter allows you to simply place it in front of your TV set. It is charged by means of a USB port, present at the back of it, with a cable and a wall adapter (included in the set).

The remote is the real game of this product. It has a sleek black design with a 2.5-inch touch screen display at the top half. This touch screen allows access to a number of system settings.

Moreover, the typing pad of the remote doesn’t come any less handy. It has a user-friendly interface with all the basic keys for the smooth functioning of your YouTube TV. The remote is charged, not by batteries, but by means of two charging contacts when it sits on its cradle.

We exclusively had fun with this one on ‘Movie Night.’ On pressing the button with that specific label, this remote control automatically dimmed the lights, dropped the smart blinds and tuned to YouTube TV. Pretty exotic right! 


  • Dramatic effect
  • Easy setup
  • Manage all entertainment and other smart home devices
  • Stylish and user-friendly touch screen display.


  • Costly.

Universal Logitech Harmony Companion Remote For YouTube TV


Next in line is the LOGITECH HARMONY COMPANION. Although we liked the LOGITECH HARMONY ELITE, it was quite expensive (quite too much in this case) so we decided to try out a cheaper alternative with similar attributes. In this regard,

the LOGITECH HARMONY COMPANION turned out to be a good pick. It possesses many functions resembling those of the LOGITECH HARMONY ELITE, and is comparatively, friendly on the pocket. 

Resembling the LOGITECH HARMONY ELITE, it also comes with a hub, a handheld remote and can also be operated via a mobile phone app. The hub component of the LOGITECH HARMONY COMPANION runs in a similar fashion as a stand-alone hub.

It has various ports to connect multiple devices via IR, Bluetooth or WI-FI. The hub allows the user to connect devices on the other side of the wall like a PS5 or XBOX 360 and can control a maximum of 8 devices.

Its remote is also quite similar to the LOGITECH HARMONY ELITE, apart from the built-in touch screen. It includes a complete feature of home entertainment controls and can also support smart home devices and is charged by batteries.

Caavo Control Centre Universal Remote For YouTube TVs


Are you a big fan of Apple products? If you hold amongst your possessions an iPhone or a mac book, chances are that you might as well be the proprietor of an Apple TV.

Although people seem to be crazy about ATV, our personal idea is that you can get much more benefits with other services, like Roku or Amazon.

But what’s done is done! You have successfully bought an ATV and efficaciously lost its remote as well. Although people prefer the original Apple TV remote quite a bit, no one wants to spend a fairly good amount on buying a new one.

At least we don’t! So here is a cheaper alternative. Caavo Control Centre remotes worked the best for us in this regard. 

        These remotes allow you to connect up to four devices and works extremely well with YouTube TVs. 


  • Simple setup
  • Voice control
  • Family-friendly
  • Works with smart home assistants
  • Free 45-day trial.


  • Cannot work without a command Centre.

Logitech Harmony 665 Advanced Remote Control


Not a big fan of remote control packages? No problem! Logitech brings a stand-alone remote control as well for easy operation of your YouTube TVs.

It is a classic unchaperoned, budget-friendly remote control that serves as a great alternative for many of the high-end HARMONY remotes.

Charged by 2 AA batteries, it contains a screen (not a touch-screen), which comes in quite handy, especially if you are keen on programming shortcuts. 

This cheap product contains in its plastic case, an utterly diverse world of functions, keeping in mind its retail price. That’s not all! The thing which we found the most amazing is that it can connect up to 10 devices…

THAT’S 2 MORE AS COMPARED TO THE LOGITECH HARMONY COMPANION! Peculiar isn’t it! However, one thing which was clearly a drawback is that it does not facilitate mobile apps.


  • Can connect up to 10 devices
  • Easy setup
  • Customizable LED screen


  • Bulky figure
  • Tiny screen size

Universal Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard Control


One can get bored trying and testing the same old remote controls, and that too for streaming purposes. Well so did we. It was becoming downright frustrating operating a YouTube TV with the plain old boring remote controls, especially when you are fond of doing tons of searching while watching YouTube. 

This infuriation led us to try out the Harmony Smart Keyboard. As the name suggests, it looks and works similar to the keyboard of a laptop. With a built-in touchpad mouse, you can scroll lines and columns without having to press the up/down control keys on the remote a trillion times. 

This one worked best for us as a couch keyboard, especially the left mouse button key; which proved to be quite convenient. It enables you to operate at a distance of 10m.

The most amazing attribute is that it is wireless. Forget about the tangled wires! This smart keyboard connects to your YouTube TV using merely a wireless connection. Moreover, If you are a not great fan of the keyboard typing noise, this one should be just the pick for you. It works by means of AA batteries.
