We are sorry to hear of the issue you are having controlling the Roku 3 device with the Harmony 650.
You have actually followed all the steps correctly to add the device and to create an Roku activity.
The Roku activity you create should have all your buttons customized to work with the Harmony remote. However, I would just like to know if your Roku is in the line of sight of when you are using your remote. The Harmony 650 needs to have line of sight of your device for it operate the device. The original remote that came with the device did not need to have line of sight as it worked through another means of communication.
Please try using the Harmony 650 in the line of sight of the device and see if you can make it work.

Roku 3 is completely, totally, and utterly ignoring my logitech harmony 650.
I added it as a "Watch Roku" activity, and I have added it as a "Watch Movie" activity. When I select EITHER activity, I get the Roku screen saver, but not a single button on the remote has any effect whatsoever, and yes, I am point it at the rodu box.

Device Type needs to be set to DVD. I configured under another device type (and think I found Roku) but nothing worked. My advice: delete your activity and device and start again. I am now controlling Roku 3 with Harmony 720. I couldn't learn A and B buttons because the roku remote is WiFi Direct (no IR). Maybe there's a code I can type in but not going to bother. A/B are for games and we'd prefer the Roku remote for that anyway.

Roku 3 does not use IR signals, it uses Radio signals (possibly bluetooth). Line if sight is not the issue. The logitech needs to somehow communicate with the Roku 3 on the signal it uses, which is not IR. Notice how your Roku 3 remote has a headphone jack to listen to it? Notice how there is no shiny front to the remote like most remotes? Roku 3 uses bluetooth or something simular to communicate and enable you to listen to the Roku through the remote and do things with the remote's built-in accelerometer. If it used IR blast as it's signal, it would fail from you twisting the remote to use the accelerometer.

After adding an activity and syncing my Harmony 650 I noticed when I selected the activity to watch roku the remote default activity buttons were not set to control the roku. Rather, I had to select the middle button "Devices" then "Roku 3" to be able to use the remote as the Roku remote.
Under the setup, it has you choose your TV input and also the device controlling the volume. For me this was my TV's input from my receiver, which I also selected as the volume control. When finalizing the activity setup in the Harmony software, it shows channels and other controls for the Activity under the TV icon with no defined functions under the Roku icon.
If you go to devices you can control the roku just fine, but you'll then have to switch to another mode on the remote...either the actiivty or another device to change the volume. I found this thread by searching for a hack and I noticed everyone immediately thought "what an awesome remote" "it can't possibly be the remote" "it must not be able to see the Roku" even though I bet you configured it from five feet away.
Hope that helps.

I presume that you’ve added a roku device as a pass through device in that Activity. I would request you to create a Watch Roku Activity type and check if that work as expected.
