Yes. You can set a ROUTINE to turn ON and OFF your TCL Roku TV at certain times. You have to enable the Roku skill in the Alexa app and have it 'discovered' and added to your SMART HOME devices. Once it is discovered you can create a Routine that will turn your TCL Roku TV ON or OFF at desired times and desired days.

Yes, this is possible. You do have to enable the Roku Alexa Skill in the Alexa app and it should 'discover' your TCL Roku TV and list it in your devices under SMART HOME of the Alexa app.

 

Once it is listed in your devices you can do the following with an Alexa Routine:

  1. Select ROUTINES in Alexa app
  2. Select + in Upper Right to create NEW ROUTINE
  3. Select WHEN THIS HAPPENS -- SCHEDULE -- AT TIME
  4. Set the TIME desired
  5. Select REPEAT and set DESIRED DAYS
  6. Select NEXT
  7. Select ADD ACTION -- SMART HOME -- ALL DEVICES
  8. Select your listed TCL ROKU TV device
  9. Default setting should be to POWER ON
  10. Select SAVE in Upper Right

 

This should create a Routine to TURN ON your TCL Roku TV at a desired time on the days you set. Do the same to create a separate routine to TURN OFF and make the proper TIME selection for action number 4 and POWER OFF selection for action number 9.

 

If you desire LIVE TV to be on at power up I would suggest that you set that in SETTINGS -- SYSTEM - POWER -- POWER ON -- ALWAYS POWER ON TO and select which HDMI Input you desire or LIVE TV. This would make for a fully automated routine.
