I am curious. Is anyone here screen mirroring direct from your phone/tablet to your tv? I mean, w/o dongles?

I got it workng for me, a bit. I just thought I’d see if “cast screen” meant something other than winging my tablet across the room. : )

Probably it would be better to stick a Chromecast in the middle, because otherwise it sure sucks on battery. Sucks it hard. They say to plug your device into the wall before you try this peer thing where only the wifi radios are involved.

It’s rickety as it is, the tech. But it’s bloody fun! When your dinky device hits the big screen, it’s quite the toy. It seems to work better if the receiving channel is changed from the default at the tv end. It was at 11. I settled on 1. Why that makes a difference, I don’t know.

I didn’t know those things went to 11 in the first place. ;——-)

I have no tips. Anybody got some?

It probably doesn’t matter much, but I’m using a Nex7-2013 with a Sony Bravia KDL-40R550C tv. I’ve gone on about that thing before.
