Remote not Turning the powered Roku player on

I just purchased a new TV.  Now the Roku remote turns the TV on, but not the powered Roku box.  I have to unplug the Roku box and let it reboot every time. Any suggestions?

Re: Remote not Turning the powered Roku player on

The power button on the remote is only for the TV.  Roku devices never really turn off.  Some have a "power saving" option under Settings->System->Power which, if enabled, will put the device in a "sleep" state.  You can wake the device by pushing any non-TV control button.  I'd suggest pressing Home a few times after you turn on the TV.
