Sony soundbar does not like Roku 3 player

I have my Roku 3 player connected to my Sony soundbar as an AV receiver/switcher.  When I power-on the system to any other source, video and audio are switched-through to the TV almost instantly.  But if the Roku player is my first device selection, it never connects, just a black screen on the TV and no audio.  I have to switch to another input, like the satellite box, DVD player or even the old VHS deck, and once that device is connected through, then I can switch back to the Roku and it will come right up.  Doesn't matter which soundbar input any of the devices is connected to either.  Could this be a true technical problem, or is the Sony soundbar being finicky over some Digital Rights Management issue?
