I have an LG Stylo 5 phone and I've been trying for days to screen mirror it onto my Onn 43' TV. It's not a smart TV but I did buy Roku Express to watch Netflix on my TV and I originally used my hotspot for the Roku to connect to but then it hit my 10GB limit and now I'm stuck on which way to go. I don't have WiFi at the house, only my unlimited 4G data plan from Walmart Family Mobile on my phone. I noticed the Stylo 5 doesn't have the screen share/mirroring capability natively. I tried using WiFi Direct and my phone actually did pick up the signal of the Roku Express and it even connected successfully but then on my TV all it said was 'Starting video from LG Stylo 5' and it shows a 'Stop Video' button and am 'Options' button but neither my Roku or TV remote allows me to press either one and even if I have Netflix open and playing a movie on my phone right after it connects, the TV just stays on the blank screen with a half way full loading bar and never plays video or shoes my phone screen. Without having WiFi, without having a smart TV and without having a phone that natively has screen mirroring capabilities, how in the world am I able to screen share from my Stylo 5 to this Roku Express player??? I've heard you can use Chromecast without WiFi but didn't know how true that was. Also have heard about SlimPort or MHL cables but I wasn't sure if my phone or Onn TV supported either one. Any suggestions would be extremely appreciated! I'll even cash app whoever gets me to be able to play Netflix on my phone and it cast to my TV screen successfully while using my phone's data a decent tip for relieving this stress of mine that's caused by not being able to figure this out, despite having googled it 100 different ways and trying everything I can think of. Please. Help?
