  • Your screen ought should now be reversed.

  • Tap on “Screen Mirroring” and enable it.

  • Select the TV or projector as the destination device.

  • Tap “OK” and you’re done!

If you have an ios smartphone, then the process is ever so slightly different. You will need to use AirPlay for your mirroring. This method will only work if your Roku and your Apple device are on the same mobile network!

  • The Oculus app’s ‘AirPlay’ button should be easy to find. This does move around, so you might have to press the screen or it can be hidden under settings.
