I have a 55S401 TCL Roku TV and I'm trying to make it screen mirror but it won't. I connect my LG Stylo 5X to the Wi-Fi direct.then it prompts and asks allow, don't allow, always allow etc. I click allow and it says Video Starting from and stop video button underneath. It never fully loads to show. Mar 04, 2021 Samsung Smartview is a good alternative for screen mirroring apps to use if you have a smart TV and wish to mirror your phone screen on it. Smart TV and the smartphone must be connected to the same Wi-Fi connection to be detected by the application.

- Mac: Click in the menu bar.

Still need help?
If you have another issue using AirPlay, learn what to do.
If your music unexpectedly stops
If your music stops playing unexpectedly, use your device or Siri to start playing music again. In some situations, the Home app might be using your HomePod,* Apple TV, or AirPlay-compatible speaker as the main audio source for streaming music (even if your HomePod* or Apple TV isn’t currently playing music). Using Siri on that device or performing another task might cause playback to stop everywhere. You can also use an iOS device or computer with iTunes as an audio source to manually stream music instead.
If you see video but don't hear audio
If you don't hear audio when streaming video from your iOS device or Mac to your Apple TV, make sure that the volume is turned up and not muted on both your iOS device and your television or receiver.
If you're streaming video from an iPhone or iPad, check the Ring/Silent switch. If it's set to silent, you'll see an orange line. Toggle the switch to turn on the ringer.
If your content gets interrupted or your network lags
If you have a weak Wi-Fi signal or interference from a nearby device, like a microwave or baby monitor, try the following:
- Make sure that you use the recommended settings for your Wi-Fi router.
- Move or turn off other devices that might cause interference.
- If you're trying to AirPlay to Apple TV, try connecting your Apple TV directly to your router with an Ethernet cable instead of using Wi-Fi.
Your AirPlay connection might get interrupted when you lock your device, put it to sleep, or switch to a different app.
If you still can’t use AirPlay after trying these steps, contact Apple Support.
*HomePod isn't available in all countries and regions.
