Will the Gateway remote work with a Sharp Roku TV?

So my grandparents is going to get Shaw services installed in their new home in two weeks. For their move, they decided to get a new TV for various reasons, they needed a bigger TV for their family room, one that was an LCD so it would be easy to see in bright weather, and a smart TV with Netflix and other streaming service built in, since they are no longer going to be able to get those through Optik TV anymore. I decided to pick out a Sharp Roku TV for them, since its 50 inches large, easy to see in sunlight and has over 2000 smart TV channels built in without requiring additional hardware. However, I noticed that the remote that comes with the TV looks too similar to the ones they include with the external Roku boxes, and this may be a concern since the Gateway remote may not be able to control the TV, since Roku is considered a streaming device and not a television. Is this TV compatible with the remote, or will I have to buy a different remote such as a Logitech Harmony?
