First, make sure both your Roku device and your TV are turned on for 30 seconds. Second, make sure your phone has Wi-Fi enabled and is connected to your home WiFi and not your neighbors. Third, make sure your Roku device is connected to the exact same Wi-Fi network as your phone.

First, make sure both your Roku device and your TV are turned on for 30 seconds. Second, make sure your phone has Wi-Fi enabled and is connected to your home WiFi and not your neighbors. Third, make sure your Roku device is connected to the exact same Wi-Fi network as your phone.

If you see “no connection” in the upper right corner of your TV, then your Roku isn’t connected to the internet and will need to be set up before using RoByte.

To connect your Roku device to your Wi-Fi, go to Settings > Network from your Roku device.

After you have successfully connected your Roku device to the Wi-Fi, open the app on your phone and tap the “Devices” tab and tap the refresh icon.

If that did not work, try force closing the app, turn your phone’s Wi-Fi off and on and re-entering the app.

Next, confirm your Roku device is on the same network as your phone:

  1. On your phone, open Settings and check your network’s IP address. Go to Settings > Wi-Fi > Your network name and write down the number next to “IP Address.” Your IP address will be a four-part number (e.g. 192.168.0.125).
  2. Now, check the IP address of your Roku device. If you have a Roku TV, go to Settings > System > About. For all other Roku devices, go to Settings > About. Write down the number next to “IP Address.”
  3. The first three of four numbers of the IP address of your phone and your Roku device should match (e.g. 192.168.0 from IP address 192.168.0.101). If these numbers do not match, your Roku device and phone are not on the same network.

If the IP address numbers match, you can connect manually by entering the IP address of your Roku device in the app. Tap “Connect Manually” from the app and enter it there.

If you’re still having issues connecting, try powering down your Roku device, phone, and router. Restart all devices, wait 3 minutes, then launch the app on your phone again.
