The PC is connected to 2 Samsung LED Monitors

Going into the PC-Settings->Devices my Samsung Smart TV is shown together with my WDTV Live.

If i go into the charm menu on the right side, and then choosing devices->project i should (according to the internet :-) ) see the choice to connect to the smart Tv, after choosing "Screen Mirroring" on my TV (I saw an youtube video where it worked with an Laptop and an Samsung Smart TV, exact this way).

But i only get the option to split/seperate the desktop with my 2 connected Samsung monitors.

I am not sure what i do wrong, because everything should support Miracast, but something dont.

Is anyone able to bring some light in this? I will provide more information if needed :-)

  • Is the TV Miracast certified? As a starting point I'd recommend you read all the relevant articles on this blog.

  • Hello Karan. Thank you for your Answer. Took me a few days to make some things sure. I have now an Microsoft Display Adapter Connected and working on my TV now (Saying Ready to connect). I just dont have this "add a wireless display" on my charm menu on the right side, after clicking project. I did ready the link you gave to me, Did just change nothing. Windows 8.1 / Wireless Network / and the wireless display adapter on my TV should do the job, but it dont.
