How To Cast Oculus To Roku Tv

If you have an Oculus Go and a Roku, you can use the first to cast your favorite games and apps on the latter. It’s easy to do this kind of casting, thanks to the latest versions of both devices. Here’s how to cast Oculus Go to a Roku TV. You can use your Oculus Go as the primary screen for viewing content from other devices, like a laptop or desktop computer that has an application that supports casting or mirroring. The process is similar for any device with casting capabilities and should work for most users who own an Oculus Go and a Roku TV as well.

How To Cast Oculus To Roku Tv

Step 1: Install Oculus Go Remote Installer Now that you’ve enabled remote control functionality for your computer, go ahead and install the Oculus Go Remote Installer. This will allow you to use a mouse and keyboard when you’re casting from your computer. Download the file from this page. You can find the Oculus Go Remote Installer on Windows or Mac computers, or you can visit the Oculus Go Remote Installer page on Android devices, including phones and tablets. 

Step 2: Connect Oculus Go to Computer Once you’ve installed the Oculus Go remote control app on your computer, connect your Oculus Go to it using a USB cable. A notification should appear asking if you want to allow remote control functionality for this device. If it doesn’t, don’t worry; just go ahead and select Yes in order for remote control functionality to work with this device. 

Step 3: Enable Mirroring on Your Computer Once you have connected your Oculus Go to your computer, open up File Explorer on your computer and navigate to C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support Files\Remote Control\. From here, you can enable mirroring functionality for your Oculus Go. To do so, right-click on the Remote Control folder and select Properties from the menu that appears. Click on the Security tab and select the option for Allow Read and Write Access for Everyone. 

Step 4: Install Oculus Go Remote Installer on Roku TV If you’re having trouble with casting from your computer to your Roku TV, it’s likely that your computer doesn’t have a driver installed for it. In this case, you’ll need to install an Oculus Go remote control app on your Roku TV so that you can perform mirroring between these two devices. Download the file from this page and install it on your Roku TV using a USB cable. 

Step 5: Cast Content to Your Roku TV Once you’ve installed the Oculus Go remote control app on your Roku TV, open up Settings by pressing the Home button on your remote (on other devices, press down until the Home key lights up). Then navigate to All Settings > System. Select the option for Mirroring and choose your Oculus Go device from the list. You’ll now be able to cast content from your computer to your Roku TV.
