how to use miracast?
#1
Hi!
When I joined the site Bigglybogglydo (spell?) mentioned something about Miracast. I looked on my Q10 and I see it but it shows that it's not connected. I don't know what that means.
Someone said that there are how-to guides somewhere here.
Is there anyway that I might find how to use Miracast? I know I should search but I have very little time with three little terrors running around and at night or at nap time I just crash too.
Thank you if you can help me.

Hi Cassie,
Miracast will let you stream content from your phone to a smart TV or similarly capable device. Do you have a "Smart TV"?

Discussed here:

And here's an explanation:

Oh jeez, I don't know. It's my parents' old TV that they gave me when I moved out of the base and into my parents' little house in the back of their property when my husband was deployed.

It's probably not a smart TV.

But I spend a lot oftime at the main house.

Chances are it's too old to be a smart TV then. There are devices that that can plug into a spare HDMI port (if you have one) to give you Miracast. I've heard decent reviews on the Netgear and Actiontec units.

Miracast is the bomb! Just thought I'd throw that out there.

I looked all over my TV and I didn't see anything.

When my husband comes back we'll be moving again so I'll see then.

Thank you.

Hmm if it's an old TV it won't support miracast Cassie :(

Personally I use an ASUS Miracast Dongle and have since I owned my Q10 (I'm currently on a Z30). Though it makes no mention anywhere on ASUS's site of being compatible with BlackBerry 10 or anything other than an ASUS product, I can verify that it works phenomenally. All you need is a TV with an HDMI port like mentioned before. From there, just jump into your display settings and click Share Screen. The Miracast dongle will appear in the list with a MAC address. Tap in, and within seconds you will have a mirrored display!

I recently purchased a Netgear PTV 3000. Works great with my Z30. It works very very well for me

Great thread! I was wondering how to use miracast. My Z10 didn't have it, so that was one thing that I was excited about when I got my Passport.
