Re: mirror/cast issue

I simply never get past "Starting video from..." on any device - Android anyway.  

I don't have a Windows device to try - I am a Linux/Unix guy.  I don't feel sorry for you using Windoze (hehehe - good natured jab, I assure you).  I've not tried to mirror my PC,  but have several Android devices new and old that see my Roku, the Roku sees them, but again, I never get past 
"Starting video from..." and a connection bar that goes about 1/3 of the screen, stops, and Roku returns to the Screen Mirroring menu.

I really have no use to cast my phone to a TV, but it does bug me when something doesn't work as expected.  I'd just like to know if it's me doing something wrong, Roku is doing something wrong, or sunspots.

G'day all... Thanks in advance if you take the time to respond.

Re: mirror/cast issue

I have a Lenovo Tablet 4 8 running Android 8.1.0 and when I select Settings>Connected Devices>Cast, I see only 2 of my Roku devices (both 3600x streaming sticks), but not my new 3810x streaming stick+. Various apps see all of them when casting directly to them (although I didn't fully test, YouTube and the Roku app work). I just can't use the mirror function from my tablet to the stick+. I tried rebooting both devices and they are up to date. Any suggestions?

Did you verify the setting is enabled on your Stick+?
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

thanks for the reply!

Yes, even disabled, re-enabled, set always allow, didn't see it on my tablet at all in the cast settings.

Re: mirror/cast issue

Now it's showing up after resetting my wifi router (Google WiFi 3 puck mesh). Weird.
