Re: Roku won’t connect to iPhone XR hotspot

Thanks @RokuTannerD. The update to the Roku and changing my password to lowercase and numbers only seem to work. If I have further issues I’ll let you know!

Re: Roku won’t connect to iPhone XR hotspot

This worked for me but it is does not work every time. on the first try . I have to to perform a Network Reset on my Roku. after I restart my iPhone X then cycle the hot spot on then off then on 

I have a simple Hot spot network name with no special letters of symbols after I turn my phone back on my I do the Network reset and then turn my hot spot on then off then back on

and put in the pw and it connects

I think the network reset is the Key and turning the phone off then on then turning the hot spot on then off then on also works

Re: Roku won’t connect to iPhone XR hotspot

I found this thread while trying to solve my issue. My roku doesn't even find my iPhone 11 hotspot. The hotspot is working, my MacBook connects to it, but the roku doesn't even find the hotspot. It connects to my wife's iPhone 11 hotspot, and in the past it had connected to mine as well. Now when I scan for networks it doesn't ever find my hotspot. Any ideas?!

Re: Roku won’t connect to iPhone XR hotspot

I have to reboot the tv by  unplugging it from all power then plugging it back in. as well as Re-booting my iphone then turning my Hotspot on my phone off then back on to get the Roku tv to find my phone's hot spot, Once and awhile I can just turn the Hot spot button on and off a few times then search for networks available again to find my phone's hot spot. Have you tried that?
