Depending on the number of devices that you have connected to your TV and the method that you use to manage them, it’s possible that you have a few remote controls around the room. This means that whenever you want to switch from one input to another, you will need to find the TV’s remote first.
But there’s a setting on your Roku Premiere Plus that you can change, which will make it so that simply pressing a button on the Roku will automatically switch the TV to its input channel. This setting is called 1 touch play, and we will show you how to enable it in the steps below.
