    Miracast Windows 10 Lonovo G500


    The first time I used Windows 10 Miracast with my Roku stick it worked. Now it connects but shows no broadcast. It also does not work on my Sony Bluray player. Both of them work when I Mirror a broadcast from my LG F6 phone when on Youtube so it appears that my problem is with my laptop. Any ideas for a fix?

    I suspect that your problem is with the Roku screen mirroring (beta) not your devices.

    I just got off the Roku support chat after spending too many hours trying to mirror my Acer Aspire E15 laptop (running factory installed Windows 10) to my Roku 3 to my HD TV. The Roku rep politely expressed his regrets that Roku screen mirroring is in beta and does not support any Acer products at this time. There is a very short list at the Roku website of those devices that have been tested and are currently supported. Roku is leaning heavily on their "beta" status to defend their less-than-robust mirroring function. Elsewhere on Tenforums you can find some very satisfied Chromecast users. Good luck out there.

    Note: The following graphic shows the final screen image from Roku 3 before it froze without mirroring my Acer PC.

    Thats what I thought at first. Lenovo will not mirror to my Sony bluray player either. An HP laptop works with the Roku and the Bluray as well as my smart phone works with both of them. I think its wibdows 10 or the Lenovo G500 laptop. Lenovo custoner support is totally useless! I have looked everywhere and found no fixes.
