Linking my TV's HDMI's to my Roku streaming stick+

Hi,

On my Roku Streaming Stick+, under> Control other devices>1-touch play (for HDMI connected devices only), it says " Tell your TV to automatically switch its active source/input to your Roku player on any remote key press".

I am not sure I understand how this option works.

Is anyone using this option that can elaborate and explain to me, in more detail, how to do this, because it is not working for me.

Thanks

Re: Linking my TV's HDMI's to my Roku streaming stick+

Roku's "1-Touch Control" only works if the tv also supports the function.  The industry refers to this function as HDMI-CEC (HDMI Consumer Electronic Control),  but some tv manufacturers have their own name for it, for instance Samsung calls it "Anynet+" and Sony calls it "BRAVIA Sync".
