    After upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, I was able to retain all the apps and all worked fine. Then, yesterday I did a hard reset on the phone. It cleared the phone so I had to install all the apps again. I was able to find many apps on the store but some of them like Lumia branded ones (Creative Studio, Play To DLNA) are missing. Since I used Play To to stream photos on Philips LED TV, I am left with no option now. I also tried to install Play To via XAP installable file but it does not install. Can anyone suggest me an app for that or a compatible Play To app for Windows 10?

    I am using a Lumia 920 and Philips LED 7000 series Smart LED TV with Android.

    Just curious... I have a simmilar Philips smart TV, that supports DLNA, but even in 8.1 my phone couldn't see the TV on the same network, and i've tried both Play To and project my screen. Is that why you are using android, because it didn't work without it?

    I haven't been able to project my surface 3 or Lumia 1520 on Windows 10. Both worked under 8.1.

    It's not just DLNA. Miracast screen mirroring is also messed up.

    Works fine for WP8.1 and Windows 8.1, but on the same hardware, will not work on Windows 10 or Windows 10 for Mobile.

    Clearly, Microsoft still has bugs to fix for 10.

    Miracast never worked for me on any of the TPs going back as far as I can remember.

    Miracast works fine for me (build 10166 & Samsung F6000 TV).

    I've got a Sony Blu-ray player that works with Windows 8.1 (phone and PC), although it's rather clunky as you have to go through a pairing procedure on both devices. Anything on Win 10 just won't go.

    The Android users in my house seem to be able to do all kinds of cool streaming to the Bluray player without having to go though the lengthy pairing mess I did even when it worked in 8.1. I'm not sure what it is they are using. They can even lock their phones without it shutting down the connection.

    I am not using Android! The Philips TV has got Android. I was perfectly able to stream using the Play To app on Windows 8.1. It still worked after I update to Windows 10. It's just that after a hard reset, the app vanished from the phone and there seems no way to get it back.

    Microsoft today updated their Creative Studio to support Windows 10. May be they will update the "Play To" app too!
