screen mirroring issue

I am having problems using the screen mirroring feature. What is particularly frustrating is the fact that for two blissful weeks this function worked perfectly for me, with no connectivity issues whatsoever. One fateful day however I installed several updates that were recommended by HP assistant. Suddenly, screen mirroring no longer works. Now every time I try to screen mirror, the TV begins the process, seeming as if it's working for about two seconds, then it freezes, often times crashing my Roku TV and forcing it back to the home menu. (also the laptop screen will "blink"once) On my laptop I will subsequently see a "could not connect" message in yellow text underneath the name of my TV. I have an HP laptop with windows 10 on it (which I purchased only a few weeks ago), and the TV is an Insignia Roku smart TV.  Please any insight into this issue would be greatly appreciated as I have combed numerous forums on many different sites and cannot seem to find anything that works

Re: screen mirroring issue

Backtrack the drivers on your laptop. Could be HP released buggy drivers. Wouldn't be the first time. I found an HP driver with a keylogger buried inside it. And considering I work at a medical facility, having a log locally on the device with passwords and PHI, not good. Anyways, you've identified the change, backtrack the change.

Re: screen mirroring issue

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, when I clicked on Smart View it's showing the neighbords smart tv but not my TLC tv, I have the Roku TV TCL model 55S403.
I have used the mirror 2 times, but the other times it's not on the list of the available TVs to mirror.
Is there any way to be sure that I can see it on my list of available mirror tv?
Thank you

I can't walk you through the menu to find it, but there's a setting in there that allows or blocks remote connections. Check that to make sure it's enabled. I've mirrored my S8 to my Roku TV (Sharp) with no issues.

Re: screen mirroring issue

I'm in a similar situation with my laptop running Windows 10. There must have been a Windows update that screwed things up because I've been able to connect (mirror) to my Roku stick for 3 years now. All of a sudden it just stopped on both my laptops. It won't even find my Roku now when I try to "add a device." I've tried everything, including removing and re-adding drivers in the Device Driver app. That was the solution I got from Roku support and it didn't work. I guess we're on our own here!

Re: screen mirroring issue

I am having the issue trying to push from my iPad Pro 11. Trying to mirror so the kids can see my notes and PDFs through Notability and other apps for homeschool lessons. Everything was fine until I went in today. Now it will only show for around 1-2 seconds and then goes to a black screen and then reconnects. This continues in perpetuity. Has anyone else experienced this? I am beginning to think it is a Roku extension issue in the code and not Apple, HP, or one of the device manufacturers. If Windows-based systems and iOS systems are all having the same issue, it has to be in the application or root software on Roku’s end.
