Further info.  With 1-touch play, any inadvertent press of a Roku remote button will cause the tv to switch to the Roku-connected HDMI port.  Some remotes even have motion detectors that can cause this if the remote is picked up or bumped.

I liked having this feature at first as it made is very easy to switch to watching the Roku, but the inadvertent changes got to be too bothersome and I ended up de-selecting it.
