" ...  Navigation is much simpler now than with our old setup. ... We used to have to switch inputs and remotes to use our rokus or fire tvs, and even the apps on the old TV were not directly accessible from the home screen. ... With our new Roku TV, there's a dedicated home button on the compendious remote, and all the apps and inputs are directly selectable from that home screen (inputs and apps are all together). ... I opted to keep that setup so I purchased a separate stand with swivel for the Roku TV to rest on that (B075TZTXLQ). ... Since Roku is built in to the TV I thought all inputs should work with that.  ...  "
