My HP laptop with windows 10 does not mirror with my two TCL ROKU tvs.  The pairing process starts to appear on TV but quickly stops and returns to home screen. 

I have two TCL Roku TVs.  I bought them in 2015 -2016.   I spent a lot of time with TCL Support on Feb 4, 2019 and Costco Concierge on Feb 2, 2019. and again on Feb 4, 2019. I discovered this forum while on hold with tech support calls. Has anyone else had a problem mirroring from an HP Pavillion with windows 10 or from any windows 10 PC  to a TCL ROKU smart TV?

TCL tech  support informed me that ROKU has been aware of this problem for a few years.  They are working on a version 9 software release. However there is no release date scheduled and there is no knowledge the mirroring problem will be fixed in the new release.  

TCL support characterized the mirroring feature as "hit or miss".    I happen to be in the miss category.

It's next to impossible to mirror a Windows computer to a Roku. It takes a specific combination of hardware and software on the computer, and even then it's as TCL says, hit or miss. The only reliable screen mirror I've had was with an Android device. Nothing else ever worked. 
Nvidia Shield, Roku Stick (3600), Ultra (4640), Premiere (3920), Insignia 720p Roku TV, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Windows 10 Pro x64 running Serviio and Plex on a wired Gigabit network.
