    Sling box connects to roku manually. Button still won't show up.

      Using ios10, roku  express,  and sling box 350.

       

      I was able to connect the sling box to speakers I have via airplay without issues. Granted, this was audio only.

       

      I even manually added the 10.0.0.153 roku IP address and the slingbox  iOS app confirmed it had found the roku device.

       

      Regardless, the slingbox button for airplay did not show the roku device. All it says is "iPhone"

       

      Help please,

          Same issue when I upgraded to the new roku express 3700. Just "iPhone", even though I manually added the ip addy as instructed. I went back to my older Roku 2 and bang, the roku SN showed up and works fine and had no problem slinging. Don't know if it's the Roku software or something else with the Express. Roku Express software is 7.2.2; Roku 2 software is 7.2.0 + build 4113-06. Roku says to contact the channel developer when this type of issue arises. That would be Sling Media. Working on doing that now.
