I understand you are having issues when trying to cast to your Roku. If your android phone displays a "!" it may be that your Roku is not connected to the internet. Please make sure both the Roku and your android phone are on the same network. Below is a helpful link:

In your response, you indicated that my Roku may not be connected to the
Internet. Since I am able to watch streaming videos from both Netflix and
Hulu,from all 10 of my Roku devices, that should indicate that my Roku is
connected to the Internet.
Second, you said make sure that the Roku and the Android phone is on the
same network. The SlingPlayer app on my android phone is able to discover
my Roku, isn't being on the same network required for the SlingPlayer app
to be able to discover the Roku? In other words, if the SlingPlayer app on
my android phone is able to discover the Roku, isn't that enough proof that
they must be on the same network?
So I am back to being confused about the "!" next to each Roku that is
listed. If my Roku can access the Internet to stream videos from Hulu and
Netflix and if the SlingPlayer app is able to discover the Roku, what else
could be causing the "!"?

I discovered something new today concerning the problem that I'm having
slinging the TV channel to a Roku.
I will step you through what I did and then tell you my new discovery.
1) I confirmed the IP address of my Roku.
2) I confirmed that the Roku could access the Internet by streaming a
3) I used an App on my android phone to confirm the IP address of my phone
and to confirm that it could access the Internet.
4) I then selected the mirror icon inside of the Sling Player App to
display the compatible Rokus on my network.
The next thing that happened was unexpected.
When I selected the Roku that is in the room from which I was working, I
saw nothing. However, a Roku in another room that is on a TV that my wife
was watching displayed the Roku Sling Player Channel. The TV signal was
never streamed to that TV but the wrong Roku did respond by opening the
Sling Player Channel. If you can see my Android screenshot above, you can
see that every Roku listed has an "!" next to it. I still have no
explanation for the cause of the "!". I still don't know why I cannot
Sling to a Roku.
The web link that was provided by support does not offer any
troubleshooting steps that I have not already tried. Please offer me a
solution or simply tell me that the Slingbox 500 does not Sling to a Roku
as advertised so I can return the Slingbox for a refund.

Slingbox support tells me that I have too many Rokus and that is the reason
that I'm not able to sling to my Roku with a Slingbox 500.
I unplugged every Roku except one and the Slingbox 500 still will not sling
the TV signal to it.
