Roku Stick Keeps turning TV on

I just purchased a Roku Stick for my son's room.  He has a older Sylvania LCD TV 1080i.  We were able to plug it in and setup it up without a problem, however when we turn off the TV, the TV turns back on automatically within seconds.  We have tried moving the Roku stick to another HDMI port on the TV and it still turns on automatically as soon as we turn it off.  I have confirmed that the Roku stick has the latest firmware.   We have an identical Roku stick on our TV in our bedroom and it works just fine.   Any advice on what we might be able to do to fix this?

Look through the menu on both the TV and the Roku for 'HDMI CEC'.  Your TV manufacturer might call it something else though.  Basically the TV watches the input for activity and then turns on.

This issue can be solved by turning off the “Contol other devices” setting. From the Roku home screen, click on “Settings,” then on “System,” then on “Control other devices.” Click the “1-touch play” box so that there is no check mark in the box, and back out of the menus to the Home screen. This should solve the issue.

What flesner said works like a charm. This answer was harder to find than I would have guessed for such a simple solution.

I have tried both the CEC fix on my TV (Vizio) and unchecking the 1-touch play box on my Roku. I still wake up in the morning and my tv is on. This is driving me crazy! Any other suggestions?

Same here! Just started within the past month with my Vizio TV.

Re: Roku Stick Keeps turning TV on

You say it just started, did you just get the TV or was there an update to the Roku stick or something?

Re: Roku Stick Keeps turning TV on

Any other HDMI devices (or smart apps) or even say a remote Hub or Router that might "wake" the TV? Say via a WiFi connection...

I've occasionally had issues with my Vizio TV being woken up by my DirecTV DVR...

Re: Roku Stick Keeps turning TV on

The only thing I have plugged into the tv is the Roku stick. I can’t remember but I may have the tv itself hooked into my Wi-Fi, but nothing else is plugged into an HDMI port
