Insignia AirPlay screen-mirroring not working

Jump to solution

Hi!

I have a weird problem: just recently I found out that Roku TV supports (natively) AirPlay now. So I tried to screen-mirror my iPhone (iOS 14.2) and/or MacBook Pro (Mac OS Big Sur), and despite being able to select my TV when I click on AirPlay, I see nothing - TV screen is blank! I can stream via AirPlay if I actually load a Youtube/HBOMax content onto my iPhone / MacBook, but I can't screen - mirror.

Any idea why that is?

How do I setup Airplay

I figured it out! 

Turns out that using 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, instead of 5.0GHz did the trick. And it doesn't even have to be on both - iPhone and the TV. Just the TV on 2.4 is enough.

-Roku device model- A105X
-serial number - X00300M5WS3P
-device ID - S051Y985WS3P
-software OS/version - 9.4.0.4190

Neither of my Apple devices is seeing the Roku. I have a Macbook, iphone and iPad.

All are on the same network. All have been reset (Roku as well) nothing has worked to get the Airplay to work.

this link helped me identify devices that weren't compatible. It looks like your Mac might be not be. Here is the link...

there is a menu selection on the Roku device for screen mirroring under the Setting option.

Thank you. Yes, I know about it. I've set it to "Prompt" - nothing. I set it to "Allow All" - nothing.

Don't know what to do.

Settings/System/Screen mirroring is only for Miracast-based screen mirroring.

Settings/Apple AirPlay & HomeKit is only for AirPlay-based screen mirroring.
