Roku Network Remote  (Indigo Plugin)

Contributed by: RogueProeliator

Overview

This Indigo 6.1+ plugin allows Indigo to act as a remote control for a network-connected Roku streaming player. All commands/buttons found on the standard remote can be sent to the Roku as well as several additional commands found on the mobile applications.
