    Since I own a ROKU 2 and do not want to spend the monies for an Apple TV device like 90 dollars. My question where are the settings to mirror my iPad 4 and iPhone 4s to my TV?

    Hello - I also have a Roku 2 HD and the Roku app on my iPad - the main purpose of the app is to operate the remote easier (e.g. data entry) - there is also a choice to 'Play on Roku' but I believe that music & photos are the only options at present (not sure that movies can be mirrored) - NOW, the bad news is that the Roku 2 does not offer that feature, so you'll need to upgrade to their model 3 (or buy the Apple TV). Dave :)

    Yes Play On is a good idea but not what I want. OK ROKU 3 does mirror iPhones/iPads.

    That would be a better option.
