Re: Ipad 2 streaming on stick +

If it's a brand new Stick+ (model 3810), I'm pretty sure it should be receiving AirPlay. If you're not located in the US, it might still be rolling out to your location. On my first device, it didn't appear in the settings but it was shown as a destination device when I looked on my phone. Once I used it, then it appeared in the Roku settings menu.

Re: Ipad 2 airplay streaming on stick +

Hello, tks for your answers, i just hopped that somehow it would be possible to have backwards compatibility as usual is but I keep forgetting that we are talking about apple environment....i have an particular interest in that ipad and it is true that is old but still working good, and abandoned by apple...

Seems that I reached a dead end on that subject.... Something different, i wasn't able to install your app because it's not available in my country, can I have the app separately, not from Google play?
