Re: Roku Ultra keeps turning on

Hi @groovyjoker 

Thanks for the follow up.

What TV manufacturer and model is connected to the misbehaving Ultra? Once we have this information, I'll be able to pass it along to the appropriate Roku team to investigate further. We look forward to hearing back from you.


Thanks,
Danny

Re: Roku Ultra turns on my TV after I turn it off

I am having the same problem. It just started last week. I have tried everything including switching to a different HDMI cord, turning off CEC. I can't find the power settings mentioned above but will look again. Very frustrating.

Re: Roku Ultra turns on my TV after I turn it off

Model : 4660X - Ultra

SN: YJ0053420319

Software version: 12.0.0 build 4184-46

TV brand: Samsung. Model QN82Q6FNA

AV= Yes, but it is getting sound from the arc HDMI output from the TV. Roku is connected directly to the HDMI input without any other connection.

Tracker ID: 19-199-756

Behavior: Shut off the TV while using the Roku with the Roku remote. Wait 2 -5 minutes, and Roku turns the TV back on. Removed the batteries from all remotes, and it still does the same thing. The only way to stop it is to unplug Roku ultra.

Re: Roku Ultra keeps turning on

No. Roku technicians started an order(above), never got back to me. I currently have to shut down my entire system (TV, soundbar, Roku) using a power strip when done watching. Note my older model Roku in the other room does not have this issue. I believe this issue is related to the newer model refusing to shut down in order to receive updates. A bit obtuse. Even MS Office and Windows  allow you to shut down your computer and schedule updates. After all, we purchased the product - we should be in charge of how they stay on our off. Also, anything that continuously stays on, connected to the electrical supply, simply contributes more greenhouse emissions. Roku should know better.

Re: Roku Ultra keeps turning on

Not fixed here. I've been unplugging the power connection to the Roku Ultra to keep the TV off. Unplugging the sound bar hdmi cable also worked to keep the TV off, but it's easier to unplug the Roku power. I have 2 Roku streaming sticks that don't have this problem, but neither TV has a sound bar and both are powered by the TV usb port which I believe powers off with the TV.

Re: Roku Ultra keeps turning on

I also have the same issues as above. Has to be a Roku issue as it doesn’t do that with any other device plugged into CEC input. 

very frustrating not the way it used to work.
