whats up everyone. i was using the iphone 6 for a couple months and used the little cast button at the top of youtube and stuff to shoot the video to the tv and it was always there and always worked. i just traded it for a note 4 the other day and i can't figure out why the little symbol is only present about maybe 40% of the time. i have not changed anything on my home network or cable/tivo setup. i see it there sometimes and more often than not i don't see it. is this a common issue?

Whenever I had that issue it was because my phone was switching networks: 2.5 ghz wifi --> 5 ghz wifi --> mobile data. Possibly turning off the connection optimizer setting would keep it from randomly switching.

    I have the same problem and my phone is always connected to one wireless network. So I think the problem is something else.
