How do I setup Airplay

Jump to solution

I just received an email from Roku listing exciting new features including Airplay. Upon clicking the link in the email, I'm directed to the Roku site where a general overview of the feature is described. There's only one small problem, HOW DO I SET IT UP!!!

Simply make sure your device has the latest RokuOS/app updates:  Settings/System/System update/Check now (if it offers a new firmware version, install it)

After it installs the latest firmware, check again for any app updates (including AirPlay, which is actually a hidden app that adds a menu shortcut).

AirPlay is installed enabled, so you shouldnt have do anything else, but if you want to setup HomeKit or check the details, go to Settings/Apple AirPlay & HomeKit

Re: Airplay

My TCL TV recently upgraded to the new OS and theoretically has Airplay capability. But when I go into my iPad, only a handful of the apps I might be interested in casting via Airplay have the icon enabling me to do so. Sadly HBO Max is NOT one of them. The good news for me is that I can continue to use my first generation Chromecast to view HBO Max, but when I sold Apple computers a few years ago, one of the advantages I showed customers about the Apple TV device was the way Airplay worked with just about everything. 

To be clear, I have successfully used Airplay on the Spectrum TV and Pluto TV apps. But for the HBO Max iPad app, the only streaming icon on my screen is for the Chromecast.  What are the steps I need to take to be able to use Airplay with the HBO Max app?

just out of curiosity, do you happen to have the standard HBO app on your device?
