    With windows phone 8.1 , you get an option to project your phone screen on a computer via USB cable.
    1.first of all download this app on your windows PC http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...yScreenApp.msi
    2.Start up the application using the Project my Screen shortcut on the desktop or program list.
    3.Connect your phone to your computer using a data-transfer quality USB cable.
    4.You should get a prompt for permission to allow screen projection, click yes.
    you would see your phone mirroring on your display.

    No you can not do this at moment but if you connect your TV to your machine via HDMI or VGA cable you will get the same result

    What I think would be useful is the ability to control the on screen display with the PCs physical keyboard.

    Oh man, when i read this i thought it would be like those older Nokia phones where you could use the Nokia Suite to do everything, including sending text messages, from your computer using your keyboard.

    Not how mine works.
    I project it to a URL it can even be in a different City and ST. The Nokia Beamer even warns you it could cost you money for data. Just open the Nokia Beamer and it walks you through the easy set up. It displays what ever is showing on your phone at the moment.
    Second is PhotoBeamer that also warns about the Data use and does not need a usb connection. It also sends to a URL. The difference is PhotoBeamer is set up to send your photos not whatever is on your screen.
    Both work good with some lag in-between pictures...just about right for a slide show or with Nokia Beamer you could show a friend how your home screen looks even if they are in a different city.
    BTW: I have a Verizon Icon and don't know if it works the same on all WP 8.1.

    1020.

    At first, after download and installation, the software shows blank/black screen. After googling around, found a simple solution.

    1. On ur pc, go to Device Manager. (Win+X key, select Device Manager)
    2. Uninstall the drivers for ur phone. (Don't worry, it will reinstall after reconnect later)

    3. Run the Project My Sreen software. Disconnect and reconnect your phone.
    4. On ur phone, it will prompt "Allow screen projection?", tap Yes.

    5. That's it! (if u want to exit full screen, just tap the Esc key)

    What exactly is the point of the project my display app if you can only project it to your windows pc/laptop?

    Surely it would be easier to just use your laptop or transfer any photos/videos with the usb cable?

    When I was first reading about this app I (incorrectly it appears) assumed you could hook up your phone to a projector via a usb/VGA adapter as this would actually be useful? Is there no way you can do this?

    Thanks

    You can use a pc as a 'man in the middle' to do this. This app is for displaying the phone screen on a pc, for whatever reason one might have. There are other apps for displaying files or the screen to other devices. If this doesn't do what you want, look at them.

    I haven't had much need for this, so haven't explored it in any detail.

    For internet-enabled devices, there's Lumia Beamer, which I've used a bit.

    If you're specifically interested in projecting pictures, Microsoft also has PhotoBeamer, although I haven't tried that.

    App Hub 365 has an app called ClassBoardWP. Again, I've never tried it.

    I imagine there are others, but up to now, project my screen and Lumia Beamer have met my rather limited needs. Try searching in the store with terms like projector and screen to see what you can find.

    if you have Wifi enables device you can connect with your TV :) give a try

    1. In the App list, tap Settings Settings icon > Project my screen.

    2. Tap the device you want to connect to. We’ll automatically detect any nearby devices that can support a wireless display connection with your phone.

    Previously used this just fine...but no longer. Always displays 'searching' but never finds it. Any clues? I've gone all through the uninstall/reinstall steps above.
