Windows 10 PC not detecting Roku Ultra on WIRED CONNECTION
My Windows 10 PC has an ethernet connection to the home network. Roku Ultra has a wired connection to the home network. Win10 can't detect Roku in the "Bluetooth and Other Devices" part of Settings.
- Win10 and Roku both are updated
- Win10 has media streaming turned on
- Win10 is able to CAST video correctly to my Samsung TV, unmediated by Roku
- Roku and Samsung TV are able to screen mirror my iPhone
Has anybody successfully screen mirrored to Roku Ultra, from Win10 and know what I could be missing? This has been an ongoing project I've revisited over the past 2 years. Does Roku not screen mirror on wired connections, despite all 3 devices (TV, Win10 PC, Roku Ultra) being on the same network?
I'm not sure it's a bug, as the link provided earlier states:
This feature allows you to replicate (or “mirror”) the screen of your compatible ... Windows device wirelessly onto your TV screen
Note it specifically says wirelessly. Some seem to interpret this to mean that wireless is a way it will connect, but I think it's saying that wireless is the way it will connect. I think it's by design, based on the technology used. Miracast is from the Wi-Fi Alliance. It's for wireless connection.
