That does help to use screen mirror. Thanks!


You are welcome, glad it worked. If I set it up in case the Chromecast stops working. I'm glad I just wished I would have found that before digging through storage to find my Chromecast.

Unfortunately, it seems to only work with android and Samsung but there should be a way to mirror Google home to an iphone? I don't know because I stopped using anything apple device when they wouldn't update my iPad anymore and wanted me to buy a new one. No thank you.

You're going to end up having a lot of issues with screen mirroring video (not casting I'm talking about). I noticed that the frame rate is usually very choppy, and also you have to see your whole entire phone screen. Then when you screen mirror you're unable to use the phone for anything including making a phone call because it would take over the screen rather than the video still playing like when you cast. Which by the way this is something that I've notice for a long time in general with any streaming service when trying to screen mirror.

Re: HBO MAX is coming??

I had HBO Now app on my iPhone and Android Tablet.  When my apps updated, it automatically changed to HBO Max.  My Roku TV and Roku 3 didn't update and when I search for it, it's not available.

Correct. HBO Max is not available on Roku. HBO has the Roku app ready to go but Roku won’t allow it. Presumably, Roku wants something (money) from HBO. It is ridiculous.

Looking for Samsung and Sony TV deals now and using Chromecast temporarily - can't believe how greedy Roku has gotten.

I'm sticking with screen mirroring for the time being. But if Google's new Android TV dongle launches before Roku gets this worked out, I may go that route.

Roku doesn't make money off it's hardware, it does so through deals with streaming services. If you want Roku to remain in existence and free to use then deals like this need to be made. The wait is ridiculous though, this should have all been worked out well before launch.
