AirPlay and HomeKit are two separate but related functions.

The QR code scanning is just for the HomeKit setup - since AirPlay is enabled by default, try just using the AirPlay function from your phone.

How do I use AirPlay to view videos, music, and photos on my TV?

Before you can use AirPlay with your Roku device, check that your Apple device and Roku device are on the same wireless network. Once they are, you can use the steps below to view content on your TV using AirPlay.

  1. On your Apple device, find the video, song, photo, or podcast you wish to share.
  2. Tap or click the AirPlay video icon Apple AirPlay video icon in video apps, or the AirPlay audio icon Apple AirPlay audio icon in music and other audio apps.

    • Note: With some apps, you may need to tap or click the Share icon Apple Share icon before you will see the AirPlay icon.

  3. Select your Roku device from the AirPlay menu.

Once playback begins, you can pause, fast forward, and rewind from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, or you can use your Roku remote. When you want to stop streaming with AirPlay, you can press the Home button on your Roku remote.

Apple Airplay Required Code

Jump to solution

I recently purchased a brand new Roku Tv and I find the Apple airplay feature be very nice and convenient. However, today I tried to go into my airplay settings and chance the "Require Code" setting. It would not allow me to do so it was shaded over gray and I was unable to select it so I may change it. Does anyone know how to get past this?

Had same problem. Couldn’t pair phone to tv. Try this: Roku Settings; Apple airplay/HomeKit; require code; select “reset paired devices” now your phone should detect your tv in Screen Mirror. No QR code needed. You should now be able to access airplay features. Worked for me.
