Attempting to cast new HP laptop to Highsense Roku TV. TV Not completing process.
I am attempting to cast from my new HP laptop to my highsense Roku TV. The computer finds the TV, and the pairing (two pears) displays shows on the TV screen. Then at the bottom of the screen a meter starts moving from left to right, but stops well short of halfway. It never advances, and the pairing does not happen, and therefore I cannot cast from the laptop to the TV. I have attempt this many times, and have actually been able to complete the pairing about two times. Please advise.

If your new Laptop uses a firewall (like McAfee) turn off the firewall and try. If that works, you will need to add an allowed range of IP address in order to cast while the firewall is on. I added a range based on an obscure post for a non McAfee firewall ( https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=228192.0 ) that works but I am not sure adding those are truly safe. Give it a try and perhaps someone else will reply as to the specific IPs used by Roku or at least a more narrow range of IPs
