TV defaults to Roku

I installed a roku express because my old roku is no longer supported.  Every time I touch my tv remote for volume or to change channels the TV defaults to the Roku input. How can I prevent this?

Re: TV defaults to Roku

I've never heard of that happening, but it must be something CEC related. In either your TV settings or the Roku settings, disable CEC. On the Roku, it's likely under System/Control Other Devices. Depending on the player, it might just say 1-touch play, or actually have a CEC function listed. Just turn it off.

Of course, it could be a defective remote for the TV, and whatever button you are pressing might be sending an input change signal instead of its intended purpose.
