Re: Home button no longer swaps to source for Roku

Mine stopped switching also. I have to go to the TV input on my cable remote or Source on my TV remote and manually change the source. Then the remote will work for other features. Oh I also had to plug in to a different HDMI and go to THAT number input port and don't use the one that says ROKU.  Weird and annoying but at least I can watch Roku.

June 4 to now with no answer?

I am having same problem. It worked for quite a while. Wasn’t checking when software updates were installed. Maybe one of them was the cause?

Make sure 1-touch play is checked.

Re: Home button no longer swaps to source for Roku

As @makaiguy mentions, this is a function of CEC, an HDMI control standard. It requires both the Roku and your connected device (TV or AVR) to also have CEC enabled. Sometimes the problem is figuring out what the manufacturer actually calls the setting. Roku labels theirs One Touch Play, although some devices also have CEC mentioned in the menu. Samsung calls theirs AnyNet+, and so on. You need to ensure CEC is enabled in all connected devices. I can say it works just fine with my Ultra. I hit the Home button, the TV and AVR power up and change to the correct input on both devices. Never had any issue with it. 

Always a small chance the HDMI cable has suffered a failure, allowing the video to pass but the CEC commands aren't making it across. 

Roku Stick (3600), Ultra (4640), Ultra (4670), Ultra (4800), Premiere (3920), Insignia 720p Roku TV, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Nvidia Shield, Windows 10 Pro x64 running Serviio and Plex on a wired Gigabit network.
