Re: How to use Streambar to play music without turning on TV from Spotify with my iPhone?

Hey there I have the same issue. I have a streambar playing through a 2017 sharp roku TV. I have fast TV option turned on in the sharp roku TV interface but in the new streambar interface (that you access through the old roku TV interface) there is no 'power' or 'fast tv' option. With this set up as soon as I airplay podcasts or spotify to the roku streambar when the TV is off - it comes on straight away. 

Any suggestions? It would also be great not to have to go through the old interface to get to the streambar so any help there would be useful too.

Thanks!
