Help setting up Apple Airplay on Roku

Jump to solution

Let me state up front that I am not an Apple guy.  My wife has a current iPad Mini 5 that includes Airplay but that's the only Apple device we have in the whole house.

I have two Rokus on 9.4 that include Airplay capabilities.  I have Airplay turned on on both Rokus.  I could swear when this first came out I experimented and got my Streaming Stick+ to stream from the iPad via Airplay, but now when we click the Airplay icon while viewing a video on the iPad, the only device shown in the iPad Airplay popup on the iPad is the iPad itself.  iPad and my Rokus are connected to the same local net, and the Roku app on my phone connected to the same net sees all of my Rokus.

Where do I go from here?

  • Roku Streaming Stick +, 3810X, Ser YH0059427035, wifi - Samsung UN55ES6100
  • Roku Streaming Stick, 3600X, Ser 5S56D8240827, wifi - JVC EM37T
  • TCL Roku TV 43S425/C107X, Ser X000001R60KV, wifi

This appears to be a recurring issue with the AirPlay2 support, however:

1)  Reset the paired devices: Settings/Apple Airplay and HomeKit/Require Code/Reset Paired Devices - try again

2) Try disabling/re-enabling WIFi on the Apple devices - try again

3) Switch either Rokus or Apples from 5Ghz to 2.4Ghz, or from 2.4Ghz to 5Ghz - try again

4) Restart all devices (Rokus, Apples, router/modem) - try again

5) Switch Roku's display output to 1080p - try again

Thanks, I'll give these a try when I can get the iPad back out of my wife's hands for a while ...

Stick+  already set to 1080p by the way.

I guess I got lucky. All it took for me was disabling/re-enabling WIFi on the sole Apple device.

Thanks for your help, @StreamerUser

Thats actually the most common "fix" for mirroring/casting issues - and the easiest to try/do, so it works out well when thats all it takes.
