Remote control with HA plex denials

Using Home Assistant with Plex and roku integrations. Roku tv is up to date and with plex app. I can cast plex from my phone directly to the roku tv and have no issues with controls. Ie. Play, pause, stop ext.

When i try and control the roku tv from home assistant i can turn on the tv, set to plex app but won't allow control over media.  It's like the capability file for the tv isn't correct and is limited.... even though it works while casting directly from my android phone app.

Looking for input for troubleshooting.  Thank you
