Default Screen casting options?

I'm still a little vague on this subject. I've searched and read some topics here but I'm still not really sure in my options so i'm hoping to get some advice.

My goal: Cast my screen to my tv so I can play games on my tv.

My set up:
basic samsung 1080p tv (no network connection)
XBMC / Windows box connected via HDMI.

I appreciate I may need to buy hardware and I am willing to do so. My xbmc box used to handle DNLA from my S3 gallery but not sure about miracast or alternatives. Obviously dnla will not give me what I want anyway

Im a bit confused by the different "branding" of cast technology so im not sure what to research.

Any help to find a solution would be grateful received

you might try allcast. it will cast the screen to a DLNA source which xbmc is.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...shikdutta.cast

you can at least try it out for 1min to see if thats what you are looking for before paying for it.

Thanks for that however dlna won't do what I need. I need full cast of everything. Dlna only handles media but I need to screen cast the entire phone outside of "media" unfortunately.

i believe you would need something that handles miracast as its a more popular option for screen casting. you should have more success finding something that handles/does miracasting.

One of the threads was saying miracast was a bit hit and miss. Are there other things that cast that aren't "miracast"?

Is miracast just a receiver at the tv side and an app on the android side?

Anyone got any miracast experience in the n5
