Screen Mirroring can't connect on android device,

Can anyone at Roku provide an update on efforts to provide a fix so that android devices can connect to my TV? Airplay devices work well. Just not android.

Re: Screen Mirroring Hinsense 43" Roku

Hi @StevenJay1,

Thanks for posting here in the Roku Community!

We appreciate you sharing this information with us regarding the Screen Mirroring feature not connecting to your TV. Let's fix this issue by following the steps provided to resolve the issue.

Kindly verify screen mirroring of Roku is configured or working properly:

  1. Settings/System/Screen mirroring/Screen mirroring mode=Prompt
  2. Settings/System/Screen mirroring/Screen mirroring devices/Always blocked=none
  3. Settings/System/Advanced system settings/Device connect=Enabled
  4. Settings/System/Advanced system settings/Control by mobile devices=Default
  5. Always select "Always allow" when prompted by the Roku
  6. Test with (another) Android/Windows Miracast-capable device

One additional step you can do after performing all these steps is to restart your Roku device by navigating to Settings > System > System Restart.

Please let us know how it works.

All the best,

Takashi O.

Re: Screen Mirroring Hinsense 43" Roku

Thank you. I have done the "Steps" several times. Earlier in this thread I posted the diagnostic screen information. Unfortunately I still cannot screen mirror from any android devices on this Roku(Hisense) TV. I have another TV. (Google-Hisense). Screen mirroring works successfully on my android devices on that TV
