    I have a LG 47LA660V-ZA and my 1520 with Cyan is working pretty well projecting to it using Miracast.

    Anyone else tried it yet?

    Is it 16:9? When I mirror my dvp8 tablet, there are bars on the sides..

    Also, is it possible to project while having the display go to sleep...like when playing a video?

    Hey

    I have updated my lumia 1520 with lumia cyan. Although it is suppose to bring the functionality to screen cast the device on to the my LG 42LB5820 but it is constantly showing connecting and then in a while it shows disconnected. I have tried many times but unable to mirror my device to my TV.
    Its disappointing how the things going with Microsoft and windows. I had expectations and now they are all thrashed.
    It would have been better spending my money on some Android device. Alteast all the things work there.

    When you mirror it has to take on the resolution of the device. On the DVP8 set it up as a second display instead. Then you can set the resolution independently of the device display.

    When I use it as a second display, I can't control anything on it without a mouse :/

    Try updating the firmware on your TV. It could be you're TVs Miracast causing issues. I have a netgear push2tv adapter. It was known to have issues before firmware updates on it

    I had first trouble to get my phone and TV finding each other and then get connected. Now that those are paired they find each other but it takes a while to get connected.

    Performance is irregular and there is 2 second freezes now and then. Projecting videos is painful because of freezes and constant hitching. I blame my TV since i guess it have just single core prosessor. Even browsing web is very slow with it.

    My TV is LG55la660v-za

    There is a utility available for windows 8 that will turn your touch screen into a large track pad.

    Not good at all. Not the Miracast I expected... I have 32LA6610 LG smart tv and it takes too long to connect and sometimes won't even connect, not consistent. And when playing a video, the phone's does not turn off and lags and hiccups' are really noticeable.

    Found out Nokia play to app works better. You still use your phone while you are streaming the video to your smart tv.

    My 1520 with cyan works fine with my Lg 32LN571B-TE. The only thing I notice is a slight lag. Plus some connecting issues. Typing this while mirroring is on the screen. At the same time streaming music through Miracast.

    Before Cyan, running the developer preview I could "Project My Screen" via USB. After the Cyan update my 1520 is prompted with a code to connect but it fails every time. It also can no longer work with a USB connection like it used to. I have tried on multiple PCs with no success.

    No. Roku has never released a device capable of being a Miracast receiver. I will be one of the first in line if they ever do.

    Well Miracast is always a hit and miss and it completely depends on the device drivers for the device and the receiver device. I have a laptop and Dell V8P which both support Miracast and i use them to project on my Samsung Smart TV. Connecting to the TV has greatly improved over the past year after Intel released updated drivers along with updates for the Samsung TV. It still does lag slightly on the device when screen sharing.

    Since the 1520 is a comparable device to the V8P (my laptop is a way powerful machine), it slightly lagging should be alright and expected in my opinion, again unless the lag doesn't cause stuttering

    My Nokia 1520's Project My Screen function is working great with a Netgear Push2TV (PTV-3000) plugged into my TV (after I updated the PTV-3000 firmware to 2.4.46), as long as the Netgear unit is in front of the TV (video was choppy when the Netgear was behind the TV). Having scoured the internet for info about "Project My Screen" and the Nokia 1520, it's interesting how quite a few of the early reported problems were the result of people who loaded the Developer Preview onto their phones and then experienced problems with "Project My Screen."

    Anyone connected to a Miracast device that is connected to a receiver (e.g. any Miracast device connected to a surround sound receiver which is connected to a TV) and the audio is passed through as Dolby Digital? I am glad to hear correct 16x9 aspect ratios and 1080p resolutions are working in some cases.
