I bought a new LG thinQ, something, TV and I really dont like it. It's difficult to navigate through menus and would rather have Roku. If I plug a roku device into this TV, can it be set-up so that the Roku starts immedietely? I do not want to fiddle with the LG remote to get things started. I want to push the power button on the roku remote and things will be ready to go. Might return TV if i have to deal with 2 remotes. Thanks!
To echo @makaiguy it would probably turn on to the last input.
Many current and recent TVs (yours is from 2017) will turn on and switch to the Roku input when the Roku is awakened. I have a TV that works that way (it's not an LG, though). Hitting the HOME button or otherwise waking the Roku will turn on the TV and switch the input.
I don't know for certain your TV supports that functionality, but it is common for TVs to do just that.

Yup. Just hooked up my Roku Ultra yesterday and the Roku remote starts everything and the TV DOES goes straight to Roku. The TV's app selection does pop up at the bottom of the screen but goes away in a few seconds. So everything wprked out well.
I tried several settings, I have a new Roku Streaming Stick+ 3810X, and it could not find an LG in the built in "codes" or tvs. I have an LG Smart TV Model 49UK6090PUA (build date 10/2018).I was able to get everything EXCEPT the TV to set up. I tried the built in function (Roku said it searched the HDMI port for TV screen settings data) and that worked, but it did not find the name of the manufacturer. It said there was nothing with an L. I presume it is no big deal, the Roku stick did pick up all the TV pic data, it is the sound leveling (found that), volume control, and tv power switch. I have had the base Roku stick for over 2 years so not really a newbie and i prefer not to buy a new roku programmed universal remote since this is brand new. Any thoughts? I have given up for the night.
