Re: Google Home + Roku -> No Longer Turns TV on/off but can perform all other operations

Jump to solution

Sometime in the last couple of weeks, Google Assistant on Google Home Mini started working again.  I don't know what changed, but I'm again able to use "OK, Google -- turn on Roku" and my Roku Express blinks and HDMI attached dumb (Sony) TV powers on via CEC.  "OK, Google -- turn off Roku" powers off the TV again as well.  Roku, Google or both fixed something -- thanks!

Still not working for my TV with Roku built-in (I am from canada). Very disappointed in ROKU Customer Satisfaction, really looks like they don't carea bout Canadian customer - I am certainly not recommending it to friends and family

Hey guys, just got caught up on this thread.   I tried re-linking my Roku account with Google, and I am able to turn the TV on and off again with CEC via the Roku.  While  the one TV in the bedroom doesn't have CEC support, it does turn on the connected sound bar when issuing the command to power on the TV, or the Roku.  As far as launching channels on either device, that seems to work.  Asking for content say from prime video also seems to work, however, is there a way to tell google to start playing a specific show?

 

In my case, I wanted it to continue playing the original Star Trek series from Prime Video, however, all I was able to do was have Star Trek shows on prime video shown to me in the search.

 

One other issue is, since there are many different Star Trek series, how do I tell it which one I want ? simply saying Star Trek makes it ask which one I want, vs just assuming I wanted the original series.

Enabling fast start fixed this problem for me

Fast Start is a feature of Roku TVs -- this thread is about those of us using Roku Express connected to a non-Roku TV -- i.e. we don't have Fast Start.  We rely on CEC to turn connected non-Roku-TV on and off. The CEC support on Roku Express seems to have been broken for a year or so, but working again -- in the U.S. anyway.  To friends in Canada, I'm sorry (for so many things lately...  :-( ).

I have a Roku TV and I live in Canada.

i should have posted when it happened, but since a couple of months now, Google is now able to turn on/off my tv with the voice.

I have done nothing special. It just happened one day.
