I have just gotten a new update on my samsung tv 2018 version, there is additional menu "Airplay settings", however although its "on", my mac doest detect the airplay display. Both mac and tv are on the same WIFI as I can use chromecast.

 

I have tried to plug off the tv and turn on again, still the same, I am on update 1251.

TV Model : UA49NU7100

 

Any idea?

Just switched from Q60 to a brand new LG 86". Best decision we could have made. It's weird.... everything just, works. No googling or forums. Just a functional TV.

Searching online didn't yield any result. I promised I'll come back here if I'm able to fix it, and I did.

The problem was that I had the MacOS firewall enabled, blocking incoming connections.

What made me realize it is trying to cast from iTunes, which resulted in a more friendly error saying "your firewall is on".

Since this is a company laptop, I had to be a bit creative and disabling it, from the terminal type:

    sudo /usr/libexec/ApplicationFirewall/socketfilterfw --setblockall off

and type in your password.

 

Works immediately, have fun!

I don’t have a firewall on my iMac or my X. How come, if you think of, it doesn’t work for me?
Again, personal equipment, zero firewalls, totally up to date.
Thanks,
Trish

You have to make sure you are not on 5G wifi. I switched to 2.4G and everything started working perfect

What do you mean: 'resign your modem'?

Yeah or you can connect the internet to the tv wired and then use the wifi on you your phone

Samsung shouldn’t force to fiddle with the modem to work with it. That’s just ridiculous. I’m not saying you are. Samsung is. LG is plug in and go. Won’t ever buy Samsung, again. I wish Apple made a tvs.

That’s how mine is set up. Still doesn’t work. Even the Dish guy can’t figure it out(granted, not a specialist).

My advice is to buy LG. If it's still possible to return, DO IT IMMEDIATELY!  Sorry. I haven't found an answer, update to the software,  any guidance from Samsung. Nothing. I'll remember their customer service, also.  I'm sorry you are in the boat I am in. Good luck.
