Roku Powering TV ON Randomly

This is a new problem as of ~ first week of April 2021.  Entire system worked fine for years prior, no hardware changes, no software updates on the TV, so must be a ROKU issue.

TV powers on randomly after shut down, goes immediately to ROKU home screen. Unplugging power to ROKU allows the TV shut off (and stay shut off). Clearly a ROKU software issue.

FWIW, its an older, 1080p 75" sony, with the (**bleep**) android TVOS... which is why I use Roku... Please fix!


Re: Roku Powering TV ON Randomly

Hi so the issue with my roku tv is that it keeps powering ON itself usually early morning 2am-6am I would wake up in the morning and my tv is ON. I would come home from work in the afternoon time and it's ON! This issue just started occurring I'm thinking it's an software upgrade Issue??? Because I have a smart T.V??? Please FIX!
