Streaming Stick+ Screen Mirroring not working

Jump to solution

Hi,

I got a new Roku Streaming Stick+ and it updated itself to the latest version and almost everything works as expected. The screen mirroring from Windows 10 (2 laptops tested) is not working at all.

I followed all suggestions posted here and elsewhere on the internet without any luck.

So, I suspected that Windows 10 may be the problem. I tried screen mirroring with Amazon Fire Stick 4k and it works just fine so I have to to exclude Windows 10 (which by the way, I installed the latest updates for Network adapter and display).

The Roku Stick+ is detected and listed as a display in Windows 10 but when attempting to connect it fails after some time with the message: Can't connect.

At this time I put the blame entirely on Roku Stick+. Anyone having success with the same configuration?

Thanks, Ben

I have an update to this. Looks like that last roku update (9.4.0) solved the problem!

I set the screen mirroring mode to prompt and it works quite nice actually.

Roku, please don't break this.

Thanks!

I wish I did.  My windows 10 laptop connected and projected fine (effortlessly) with my LG TV until Jan. 2020.  I had a Roku Express connected too.  Shortly after adding the Roku Streaming Stick+ I could no longer find the LG TV as a device and the TV showed no wifi connection any more.  The Roku stick showed as a device and I could connect and project to the Roku fine until 2-3 months ago.  Now mine does what you said.  The TV looks like it is connected (asks to "allow") but nothing happens and after awhile I get a message that It can't connect.  I'm also unable to navigate the screen to check or make another selection.

My frustration now is that I have the same problem with my iphone.  Until about 2 weeks ago I could mirror my phone using the Roku Streamer and Roku Mirror app.  I did at times lose connection and would have to restart the broadcast.  In the past 2 weeks the phone connects to the TV but nothing happens on the TV when I start the broadcast.  The Roku app sometimes closes (reverts to homescreen).  My phone says it is broadcasting.  I am still able to project pictures and video stored on my iphone, nothing streams.  I usually am streaming a zoom meeting, but Ive also attempted other things.

I downloaded a new Miracast app for Roku and others but its cost $9.99 a month after a 3 day trial.  I don't need that extra expense.  I haven't tried it yet,
