Roku NOT Allowing devices to connect to AirPlay, but its on 9.4 and AirPlay shows in settings??
I have a 2020 6 series TCL on 9.4 and can see AirPlay in the settings of the tv. But neither my iPhone 11 nor MacBook Pro (16” 2020) will stream to it. When I click AirPlay on either device, it doesn’t show the TCL at all.
BUT If I go into the settings on the TCL Roku tv however, if I change “Require Code” between any of the options, suddenly my TV will show up on my iPhone/Mac. If I click on it to connect though, it just does the ‘circle waiting’ motion (is there a word for this lol) and then eventually says “Unable to connect to TCL TV.” Then it disappears entirely from the options, unless I back out of the AirPlay settings screen on the TV and then go back into the settings and try to change the Require Code to something else. I have tried using the Require Password option but it doesn’t change anything, my Apple devices still just time out.
So to emphasize: the devices only ever see the TV when I’m IN the AirPlay settings menu on the TV. And never connects. I tried audio airplay, I tried screen sharing, nothing, just times out. And I have selected the “Unpair all devices” on the Roku AirPlay menu, even tho no devices were ever paired in the first place, and it doesn’t change anything.
