I have searched this topic all over the web but for some reason I just can't find an answer.
I have two computers and a roku on a wired network (running through a switch and then to the modem.
Works great .... LOVE MY ROKU.
I got the roku to see my computer and can play files using the media player on Roku ... GREAT!
Now, if I am watching something on my computer that there is no channel for ( like something other than youtube), how can I mirror the screen so that I can see it on the Roku? I tried a few of the things they said on the web but for some reason I think all the ones I found referred ti a wireless network (I get error messages saying my computer does not support mirroring). I am using an old desktop computer running windows 7 on one and windows 10 on the other.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks ..... Mike
Is there any other program I can use that does the same thing but not using wifi (maybe using the hard wired network)?
The computer (even if I added a wifi adapter) is at one end of the house and the Roku about 60 ft away at the other end ... wifi would be limited at best (and most likely none) ... this is one reason I wired in the roku (it would not work using the wifi router).
Thanks again .... Mike
Android devices (phones and tablets) can screen mirror fine to a Roku, but if you don't already have one that's a significant expense. Windows screen mirroring is so hit or miss I don't recommend even bothering with it.
