Roku Soundbar - Controlling TV Power / Turn TV Off
I just got a Roku soundbar. I previously had a Roku player on the same tv and was able to shut the tv off with the Roku remote. The soubdbar does not give me the option to shut off the tv with the Roku soubdbar. Even the option in the Roku settings isn't there to control the tv.
Originally when the roku soundbar was released you couldn't enter tv brand, it controlled the tv by hdmi-cec only. So it was wifi signal from the remote to soundbar, then it was cec signal over the hdmi cable to the tv. But it turned out some tv brands couldn't be awaken from standby via cec signal, like it can with be via IR signal. So the upgraded the soundbar software so you can enter a tv brand and control only POWER via IR. Tv volume is still only controlled via cec. The soundbar remote had IR tv built anyways, so you didn't need a new remote.
So if you have the soundbar connected via hdmi-arc, and have refreshed the cec devices in the tv settings, and still doesn;t power the tv, so into the soundbar settings:
settings> remote & devices> remotes> remote in USE> set up remote for tv control> follow prompts
