Remote's power button has to be pressed TWICE for TV to power on/off

I have a Streaming Stick Plus, and a Toshiba TV (39L22U)...why do I have to press the power button twice?  Is that normal?

Thanks...

The Roku remotes that control TV power and volume use IR, so if anything is interfering with the line of sight signal, that could cause key presses to not be accepted.

If that’s not the cause, you might want to try to set it up for TV again, only this time, skip the first one that works with it. There’s ate often multiple settings for each brand of TV.
