Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Screen mirroring is a feature that allows you to display the screen of a compatible device (tablet, phone, etc.) on your television screen. 

NOTES:

  • This feature uses Miracast technology to create a direct wireless connection between your device and the Blu-ray Player. Your device must support Miracast (Screen mirroring) for this feature to work.
    To confirm if your device is Wi-Fi Certified Miracast devices, visit the website: http://www.wi-fi.org/discover-wi-fi/wi-fi-certified-miracast.
  • Screen mirroring does not use your wireless home network
  • While you are using Screen mirroring, your device connection to your home network will be turned off
  • iOS devices do not support Miracast, they cannot perform Screen mirroring. The inability to do Screen mirroring is a specification of iOS devices. 
  • Windows 10 OS: Screen Mirroring playback may not be displayed, due to compatibility limitations with the Windows video driver.
