AirPlay not working in developer mode?

Airplay had been working fine on our Roku.

Then, I enabled developer mode and installed the Hello, World app.

Now, when I try to Airplay, after selecting the Roku from the Airplay menu on the Mac, the Roku launches the hello, world app rather than opening Airplay and displaying appropriately.

Is there a solution to this that does not involve disabling developer mode?

What happens if you delete the "Hello, world" app from the "Development Application Installer" web page without disabling developer mode?

Re: AirPlay not working in developer mode?

I have found this to be problem as well. Deleting the developer app seems to work for me. I don't have to disable developer mode. But Airplay is still flaky. I have not disabled developer mode to see if that helps, as the problems are intermittent and not sure I'd be able to narrow it down. But deleting the developer app definitely helps.

@RokuTomC Even after upgrading to Roku 10, the problem was never fixed

Re: AirPlay not working in developer mode?

I've confirmed the issue is indeed resolved and will be pushed to production with a future update to AirPlay. We're working with Apple to align on a date. I can't offer a specific timeline for that update to be published to production at this time.
