    Warning: This will require a registry hack. Proceed at your own risk.

    Instructions at link. Fortunately it doesn't look too complicated. Anyone that made registry edits on their Surface RT will be familiar with this already.

    It's also worth pointing out that desktop mode can use the Play To functionality without using registry hacks. For example, I'm able to play photos on my Panasonic TV where Metro mode won't.

    It's worth trying of you're not comfortable with making registry changes.

    EDIT: Just tried the registry hack (not as complicated as I remembered it). I still can't play photo slideshows to the TV, but I can play videos (horrible and laggy, but that might be my network/connection)

    It's worth adding to this thread that the Photos app in Windows 8.1 doesn't currently support the "Play To" feature

    So, if you're trying to get that feature working and fail, it's not your fault...
