Issues with Roku Streambar - Need Advice

Hey everyone, I'm experiencing a few issues with my (two) Roku Streambar and could use some help.

Remote Power Button: When I press the power button on the remote, it closes any open apps and takes me back to the home menu, but it doesn’t turn off the Streambar/TV. To turn off the Streambar/TV, I have to go to the home screen and select the turn off option, which is quite annoying. Even from the home screen, it won't turn off the Streambar/Tv.

Turning On: To turn on the Streambar/TV, I have to press the home button (or any other button) instead of the power button. While this isn’t a huge problem, it is a bit confusing.

App Issues: I frequently have to uninstall and reinstall apps (like YouTube) because they won’t start. This issue occurs on both of my Streambars.

Connection Problems: Sometimes the Streambar loses connection with the TV, resulting in no sound. Turning the Streambar off and on again usually fixes this, but it happens on both of my units.

Performance: The Streambar seems slower compared to my Fire TV Max.

Are these common issues with all Rokus? Any advice or solutions would be greatly appreciated!
