Can Roku streaming devices be controled by HDMI CEC?

I purchased a Roku Express 4k, and am disappointed to learn it cannot be controlled via HDMI CEC. Are there any Roku streaming products that can be controlled by HDMI CEC?

I understand that this device has the ability to issue CEC commands to my TV, such as changing the input, but I would rather do the reverse -- control my Roku with my TV remote (as I do with Kodi, and Chromecast). I will happily switch to a different Roku product if this feature is available.

Sorry but no. Only the very old 3400 mhl stick was controlled by the host tv in the same way cec would work. No Roku since can be controlled via cec.

My Roku 4 (4400x) works with CEC on an 8 year old JVC LCD TV. I don't really use the CEC function but I learned it worked by accidentally Fast Forwarding one day.
