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

I have a Roku. Depends on what type of content you plan on viewing. If you're an Amazon Prime member then stick with Roku because there's no good, clean, pretty way to watch Amazon Instant Video on Jellybean devices anymore.

If you watch Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go our any other programming that has a dedicated Android app to play content then mirroring should be fine.
Personally I'll be keeping my Roku 2 XS and getting a Miracast-compliant adapter soon to have the best of all works.

The only thing that's keeping me from buying right now is lag in sound/video...

Is the lag noticeable when playing movies via PTV3000?
