Roku built into smart tv doesn’t show up under devices

My smart tv has Roku built in and is not showing up on my devices list when I open the app. How can I connect to my smart tv?

Re: Roku built into smart tv doesn’t show up under devices

Your phone/tablet must be connected to the same network as your TV.  In addition, if your TV uses a wired connection and your phone/tablet uses Wi-Fi some routers have a setting to isolate wired and wireless devices and it's possible that it could be configured to isolate all wireless devices, but I don't think that's likely.  If that's not the case you can try using your TV's IP address displayed under Settings->System->About and entering that into the app manually.
