Airplay 2 Lag

Hi everyone,

I’m using AirPlay 2 on my Roku Streaming and Ultra and there is noticeable lag in screen mirroring. Particularly when playing Apple Arcade games. Does anyone know how to fix this issue? One tv is a lg 4k another is an lg 1080p.

@MarioLink 

Thanks for the inquiry.

We recommend rebooting both your wireless router and your Roku device to see if that resolves the issue you are experiencing.

Please keep us posted what you find out.


Thanks,
Danny

Thanks Danny! Unfortunately it’s still a bit sluggish I have about 100mbps and my roku is next to my router is this enough to prevent lagging? Are there any other things I could do? Appreciate any help!

Re: Airplay 2 Lag

Is Roku still planning to release updates to address this? Timing lag between mobile and tv is a pain.

Another update that would be nice, any time I try to watch a youtube video from my phone and move it to the tv to mirror, it resets the video to the start. Would make more sense to keep where the video was.

Re: Airplay 2 Lag

Agreed! It would be nice if we could get an acknowledgment and official fix, it is even more pronounced when gaming. I picked Roku over an Apple Tv since this feature is included and love the device otherwise but this is a significant miss. I hope they fix it.
