When I opened Nexus 4 and NetGear PTV3000 and they could not make connection because PTV3000 is still not Miracast certificated device.

I download one beta firmware 2.2.2 and upgrade the PTV3000. When it reboot and show its new ID on TV, Nexus 4 can locate and connect it.

I test some game and movie and TV can mirror the display of Nexus 4 perfectly. I think NetGear will get this device to get certification i early 2013 and release official firmware to assure 100% perfect stream between PTV3000 and Nexus 4.

How to locate PTV3000 ? Follow this steps: Setting -> Display -> Wireless Display.

Although it made a random group named DIRECT-zj .. also while waiting for it to connect, I noticed there's a wireless network available with same name as the that group (DIRECT-zj). It says WPS available but WPS receiver didn't work. its WPA2 encrypted and I cant think of any password. I think i need to connect to that group to proceed??

I can confirm that with the 2.2.2 firmware for the ptv3000 I have my Verizon GS3 working. I am running bone stock 4.1.1

The only thing is that my phone says there is an update to AllShare Cast but it then says my device isn't supported so I guess I am running an old bersion of AllShare Cast.

Anyway, this is definitely a step forward

Yes! It works finally. It takes several tries to connect and gets choppy at times, but works nonetheless.

Do you guys think the NetGear PTV would be a good replacement for a 1st generation roku? I have one and I'm debating whether to buy one and replace my roku or not
