How to use screen mirroring for Android TV

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

The Android TV can be connected directly with a Screen mirroring and Miracast compatible device without the use of a cable or wireless router (or access point).

A connection must be made by selecting mirroring on the TV and on the source device.

Refer to the list of Wi-Fi Certified Miracast devices found on the Wi-Fi Alliance website for more details.

NOTES:


To register your device to the TV


  1. Press the INPUT button on the TV remote, select Screen mirroring using the Image / Image buttons, then press the Enter button.

    * The TV goes into standby and waits for a connection from a mobile device. While the standby screen for the Screen mirroring is displayed, the wireless connection between the TV and your wireless router (access point) is disconnected, therefore communication via the Internet is stopped.
