TCL TV setting for default input

I have a TCL 49S405 on Version 9.3.0 build 4194. I hooked an XBOX 1 up to it and named the input XBOX. Now that is the default input. I want the Home Screen to be the default. Everywhere I look it says to go to Settings>System>Power. However I do not nIPUNNr - Imgur.jpghave Power in my list of options

Any help on how to get to it?

Go to settings  -> system -> power -> power on -> now pick what you want to happen when you power on tv

Yeah the tcl TVs do not have settings -> system -> power as an available option. Any other ideas?

Unfortunately, I have two. They both have home>settings>system>power>power-on. 

Sometimes I wonder if problems like this are related to Roku's vulnerabilities. Maybe tvs are hacked? With everything we see, it's not that hard to believe it's an open-door policy. (I mean, considering what we know -- imagine what we don't. Right? It gives pause.).

Go to home>settings>system>about. What version of software do you have?

You could try the so-called cache clear. It's not just a restart. It's known to fix problems other things didn't.

Hit HOME 5 times.
UP once.
REWIND twice.
FAST FORWARD twice. (Clears cache & tv reboots itself. Be patient. It takes 2-3 minutes for the tv to go black, and come back on)

Wouldn't hurt. If that doesn't bring the menu item back, maybe a factory reset?

These strange things are bizarre. Roku doesn't know what's going on. (You're going to be told to talk to the tv maker.).

"People are often amazed at how much we’ve done with the number of engineers we’ve got." (Roku CEO Anthony Wood, Austin Statesman, Oct 4, 2019). "Amazed" is one way of putting it.
