Screen Mirroring

Can somebody explain tom e what this exactly is? I am using my galaxy note 4 and when I try to scan with it I can't recognize any of my sharp smart televisions both the tv and the phone are connected via wifi on the same ghz/network

 

I assume screen mirroring is bluetooth devices though?

Re: Screen Mirroring

Not necessarily. Some TVs (mainly Smart TVs and especially those made by Samsung) and smart devices (such as the Nexus Player or Google Chromecast) give the option to mirror a screen over a local area network. They use a Wireless Direct approach per se.. some do not require you to be connected to the wifi network your device is on, but most do.

 

I would double-check to make sure that your Sharp TV supports the UPnP protocol. If it doesn't, that could be a reason why your Note 4 is failing to recognize the TV.

Re: Screen Mirroring

Where would I find this information at?

My TV is a 70 inch very similar to this particular model

Re: Screen Mirroring

My apologies, I actually made a mistake when I wrote my original reply. Your TV should support DLNA protocol, which based on the specs of the comparable model you sent me, it should be able to work.

 

I did some further research though and found that Samsung phones sometimes don't wirelessly mirror the screens to non-Samsung smart TVs without an additional accessory. It's called the AllShare Cast Wireless Hub (click here for item info) and plugs into an HDMI input on your TV.

 

If you are able to provide me with the model number for your current TV I can do some additional digging to see if this device would be required for your specific TV or if you can just mirror your screen without it.

Bought the TV more than 18 months ago so I am not 100% sure as to what the model number is to be honest. I was just able to go and compare similar specs.

 

I know for a fact I have seen something about DLNA protocol under settings I will have to look at that.

 

Will also do more research on that accessory thanks.

 

If I can get the model number I will post again. Thanks Smiley Happy

Re: Screen Mirroring

Hi deevee, 

It's always great when you're able to utilize a larger screen or extend your LG Stylus' display! With that said, if you're having trouble getting it to work, I would encourage you to check out ScreenBeam Mini2's User Guide here for some instructions. Not only does it provide you with some setup steps, but system requirements as well. 

I hope this helps!
