You have to change the input on your tv to the tv instead of the hdmi to do that

If your TV doesn't have a "start on port" setting or start using last input option it relies on hdmi to tell it where to start which, as you can tell, is often problematic.

I believe the reason why this is happening is because HDMI-CEC is launching Roku when you turn on the TV. You can disable that feature by going into Roku's Settings > System > Control other devices > Uncheck 1-touch play.
