  • Hi, really it works parallels what is presented in the article, but cast to device function does not work in movies and TV app. Please respond to *********** Thanks, Sorin.

  • clearly you know something that is not in the directions, because I have tried this a million times and it does not work. Oh and I am a software engineer so not entirely clueless on this…

  • this works well with videos, photos or music but I can’t project the computer itself and watch live football matches for example on the tv screen. the thing that i used to do but now no more. maybe because i updated windows 10 or something else.

    ^^ For that purpose, you can use HDMI cable and connect the TV with your Windows 10 machine 😊

    ^^ Have you tried above mentioned steps?

  • My Samsung Smart TV is only 4 and a half years old and I’m fed up with trying the process above. It may work on a brand new Samsung Smart TV but Samsung isn’t recognizing the Windows 10 cast app. This is so disappointing. At least I can cast from my Samsung phone to the TV. Unfortunately it looks like Samsung isn’t keeping up with technology. No more Samsung products for me.

  • hello kapil. today i found your blog and tips about how connecting win10 to Smart TVs. i bought Samsung UHD 55MU8000 with tizen os. I became hate that because it just work with samsung devices. even smart view application for windows not worked! i asked for help from support center, they say some funny answers about your firewall and … (there is hundred of users in US and EU or In Middle East (Model: 55mu8990) with this problem but i wonder why samsung not officially help to solve that)
    I searched for it the whole internet. using any tricks about using some third party apps or even turn off firewall completely and etc.
    after one week i couldn’t found any way! can you help ?
    i note that: I used dxdiag command for knowing if my PC can support miracast and its not supported. but in some forums i read about that, there is no need for that and just using 5gh channel in wireless modem is enough.

  • but my problem is that i have to connect it back everyday ,i didn’t had this problem with window 7,what wrong with window 10,i wouldn’t buy that piece of **** again

  • Hi Kapil, I also have problem with this cast to device. I can cast it with my tv but the problem is the video stop after it finish playing and I want it to play repeatedly. I’ve search it in the internet but still get a right solution for this. hoping you can help me. thanks.

    ^^ Make sure you’ve strong web connectivity on both the connecting devices.

  • Both of my devices are connected to my wifi, but I want to use my key board on my computer to connect to my Samsung smart tv, and I cannot find the information to do that, and the information I did find, would not let me connect my keyboard to my Samsung tv.
    I am so disappointed.

  • So I used to be able to connect to my Samsung smart TV with my windows 10 laptop. For what ever reason my computer is not recognizing the TV any longer. I’ve made sure the tb is up to date and I didn’t see any settings that would cause the TV to be undiscoverable. Any ideas?
