Phone not picking up TV for Screen View

I used to use screen view (screen mirroring) on my android to watch online shows less than a year ago. When I go to try it again, my tv doesn't appear.

I've reset the network on my tv, reset the internet, hard restart my phone, played with the screen mirroring options but nothing works. I'm on the same wifi for both devices, I even use the roku app and a separate roku remote app that connects via wifi and both work perfectly fine. I can even mirror images and videos saved on my phone via the roku app, but I can't screen mirror like I have before.

If it helps, the TV's model is a Hisense 55r6+

Re: Phone not picking up TV for Screen View

Is it the EXACT same phone? Not all Android phones will work with non-Google devices. I have a Google Pixel phone, and it will only cast to a Walmart Onn 4K streaming box that runs Google TV.
