    How can I wirelessly cast content to my Philips TV?

    Published on 2017-07-26

    To wirelessly cast content to your television, you first need to have a phone, tablet or laptop that is Miracast certified.

    Operating systems supported:

    • Windows 8.1 or greater
    • Windows phone 8.1 or greater
    • Android 4.4 or greater
    • Blackberry 10.2.1 or greater
    • Apple does not support Miracast or Philips Wireless Screencasting
      **Note that in some cases, even if your device has Miracast certified hardware, your drivers may have to be updated to enable the feature.

    How can I tell if my Non-PC device is Miracast compatible?

    You can check online at http://www.wi-fi.org/product-finder

    Search for Miracast as a keyword and then filter for your device. On the Device page you should see an indication that the product is certified as a Miracast Source.

    How can I tell if my Windows PC is Miracast compatible?

    Simply run a program called DXDIAG.

    1. In the Windows Search Bar type “DXDIAG”
    2. You will see a program called DXDIAG- run that program
    3. Once the program finishes, it will allow you to “Save All Information” via a button at the bottom of the report screen. Select “Save All
      Information” and put the resultant file somewhere you will find it easily, like your desktop. 
    4. Open that file using notepad and search for “Miracast”
    5. If your Laptop or PC is Miracast compatible you will have several entries in this file:
      a.  The first should say “Miracast: Available with HDCP” 
      b.  The second should say “Miracast: Supported”
      c.  If it says “Unavailable” and/or “Unsupported” then your PC is not Miracast compatible. If you feel that your PC is compatible than 
              you may need to update your drivers and/or consult with your PC manufacturer to determine the next steps.
