Try looking for a CEC setting inside your TV settings and enable it.  Also, in your Roku device, navigate to Settings,..System...Control other Device..,.then Enable 1-touch play.

With both CEC and Roku's 1-touch play Enabled, pressing any button on your Roku remote should automatically switch you to your Roku on HDMI 1 , and also should power on both your TV and automatically switch to HDMI 1 when TV is off. (Assuming Roku remote paired with TV or using Roku Remote App).

Here is a link explaining CEC and the various names for CEC depending on TV manufacturers.  HDMI CEC thehometheaterdiy.com 

Additionally, here is Roku's help page with similar HDMI CEC info.  https://support.roku.com/article/360034303013

Hope that helps with your issue.  Feel free to post back with updates or if need more help.
