Roku express is not showing mirror option

Hi,
I have a Roku Express 3700X with OS version 7.5.1 4091-28 and I'm not seeing the screen mirroring option in Settings -> System
I'm reading that the version was rolled back to 7.2 and then updated again to 7.5 but I couldn't find if this particular compilation has or not this feature.
Could you tell me when is going to be available?
I bought the Roku basically for Netflix and screen mirroring.
Thanks

Damian

Re: Roku express is not showing mirror option

Roku Express and Roku Express+ don't support screen mirroring. Roku Premiere, Roku Premiere+, and Roku Ultra do. I'm uncertain if the Roku Streaming Stick supports it. Perhaps someone with that knowledge can chime in.

Christ, the Roku Express sucks. Doesn't support screen mirroring or 5Ghz network. I made a mistake getting this.
Yes, I know I spelled Nietzsche wrong.

Yes, it appears so. You didn't ask for advice, and perhaps you learned this without me or someone else telling you, but always read the specs for any device. For Roku, on the Products Page, there's a link to this: https://image.roku.com/ww/docs/compare-chart-products-en-us.pdf which shows that Mirroring is not supported on the Roku Express or the Roku Express+ boxes.

FWIW https://support.roku.com/article/208754928-how-to-use-screen-mirroring-with-your-mobile-device links to that same device comparison chart, which seems to show that the only ones that don't support it are roku 1 and express/express plus...

New 2017 models do. So site is correct. The 2016 models do not.

Re: Roku express is not showing mirror option

I have a new Roku Express (assuming 2017 model since it says (c) 2017 on the bottom of the box).  I want to screen mirror with my PC running Windows 10.  However, my PC does not detect the Roku.  In the System menu of the Roku, there is no option for "Screen Mirroring."

Yet, as pointed out above, the spec sheet says that the Roku Express supports screen mirroring for Windows devices.  Why can't I see that as an option?

You PC must have specific hardware to do so. Miracast/WiDI support. Unfortunately very few PCs seem to support this. Also, you mention year of copyright on the box, which might not mean much. The model number 3900 is the new one, 3700 is the old one. If you bought the 3700, then that's why you don't see the menu option.

Re: Roku express is not showing mirror option

So i bought 2 roku express pluses and they don't show mirroring. Model 3710x software version 8.0
I feel deceived both by Roku and Wal-Mart.
