Roku Express Screen Mirroring

Howdy friends. My device says it has the ability to screen mirror but I don’t see the option to when attempting to actively screen mirror. Can anyone help? I have a Roku Express model 3930RW

Re: Roku Express Screen Mirroring

Miracast-based mirroring is enabled by default (Settings/System/Screen mirroring/Screen mirroring mode)

What device are you attempting to mirror from?

Re: Roku Express Screen Mirroring

iOS (Apple's OS) doesnt natively support Miracast - you need another app for that.

And your 3930 doesnt support AirPlay2 - you need a 4K-capable model for that.

You either need to get a Miracast-compatible app, or get a 4K-capable Roku model.

Is my Roku device compatible?

To determine if you can use AirPlay and HomeKit with your Roku device, you need to know the software version and device model. To find this information, go to the home screen and select Settings > System > About.

The Roku devices listed below support streaming with AirPlay 2:

Device Model

 Roku TV™ 

 Axxxx, Cxxxx, CxxGB, 7xxxx 

 Roku Streambar™

 9102 

 Roku Smart Soundbar 

 9101, 9100 

 Roku Ultra

 4800, 4670, 4661, 4662, 4660, 4640 

 Roku Premiere

 4630, 4620, 3920 

 Roku Streaming Stick®+ 

 3811, 3810 

To use AirPlay and HomeKit, your compatible Roku device must be running Roku OS 9.4 or higher. Your Roku device checks for an update every 24-36 hours or you can manually check for a software update if necessary.

I am having the same problem (iphone 6, Roku Express+).  It worked just fine on a previous Roku (don't remember the model) with this same phone - I was able to swipe up, select "Screen Mirroring" and the Roku showed up.

I checked my Roku settings and mirroring is allowed.

All the information you need is literally right in the post above yours - please read it.

I DID.  It was wrong within the first few lines:

"iOS (Apple's OS) doesnt natively support Miracast - you need another app for that."

My previous Roku (which I have actually reinstalled and everything works great) is identified by the native iOS screen mirroring and I have never had to install an additional app.

Settings/System/About  - lists the model # and name for any Roku device (had you read the information in the previous post, you'd see this same information...)

Either your "previous Roku" has AirPlay support (see the chart above), or additional software was installed (a.k.a "an app") on your phone for Miracast-compatible mirroring.
