No Longer Works - Use Roku remote to control Volume on Vizio P65-F1 w/ RCA Audio Out Speakers

TV: Vizio P65-F1 new in Dec 2018

Audio Setup: RCA Audio out (stereo) to good quality powered small box speakers

Audio Setting on Vizio: internal speakers set to OFF since using above for audio. BTW, good powered "monitor" box speakers BLOW AWAY sound bars.

Pairing Roku remote to Vizio was successful. TV Power On and Volume bar illuminates.

As of about 2 weeks ago, Roku remote volume control worked. Now it only works if I Turn On the internal TV speakers, which is intolerable since they interfere with my external box speaker setup.

Soliciting informed help on how to remedy this problem no doubt caused by a recent VIZIO firmware update intended to force TV owners to buy a Vizio soundbar.

Thanks, Doug
