I know I made the decision to NOT go to any (Single-Controller) as I didn't wish to take any chance on having issues.
I make it a point to keep things as simple and straight forward as possible.
That's why I have a single remote for each component and it all works, PERFECT every-time.

Same when you hit the power again to turn off, it would turn off everything. Sounds like you are not using HDMI-CEC control
which is where I’m having an issue with the Dish system. Other HDMI-CEC source components don’t have the same issue, eg Apple TV... SJ
I use each individual remote for each devise.
Dish Network ....... it's remote for all it's functions (No-Streaming)
Marantz AV8805 ... same only it's functions
UB820 Panasonic .. same thing only for playing the different disc (No-Streaming)
ROKU ULTRA ........ all streaming
JVC RS4500 ......... of course only it's functions
Let me say the following and maybe this will make sense to you why I have stayed doing things the way I do.
As I read on AVS daily on the different Threads and the way members, some-members, are occasionally/constantly posting they have issues.
And all of those are using the components for multiple purposes.
And some have obviously gone to one of the (Single-Controllers).
I don't (Ever) have (Any) issue with using the single remote for that devise and it's (Primary-Function) even though it can do other things.
I hope maybe what I just said maybe helps you some.
Nothing I said above is to come across at all to you in a Negative Manner as to how you or others choose to do things.
I have just tried to explain why I do things the way I do as I HATE issues/problems ..............
