Start streaming in HD (versus start in low quality)

My Roku (technically my TCL Roku TV, 5 series 2018) is plugged in via ethernet, and my internet connection gets 60Mbps. It has no trouble streaming 4k video once it gets up to speed, but it often has to start in SD quality first, which is really annoying. I'd rather wait for it to buffer for a few seconds and start in HD at least. Is there a way to force it to do that?

Can't do that with Netflix at all on any device. Roku doesn't have anything that will control this for any other app.
