One the reasons I bought the Kindle was because of I believe it's called miracast where you can project your tablet onto your tv. What ever happened to it? Or is there something else I can do?

AllCast is also an alternative if you have a roku or apple TV. I have tested it on both and movies play flawlessly. It also supports viewing pictures and streaming music.

PlayOn works with Xbox for streaming . http://www.playon.tv/supported-devices

The miracast adapters above are needed to do full second screen mirroring. Hopefully Roku will update their device soon to allow it as well.

Yeah, personally, I'd stay away from the "HDX Certified" Netgear Push2TV device. It is utter rubish. All kinds of resolution issues (you can fix with an app, but still, shouldn't have too) & the audio is marginal at best. I have an Onkyo TX5010-NR, which is one of the baddest receivers around (& I've tested/owned lots). Chromecast will support 5.1 Dolby & PCM, so will numerous other options, including SlimPort (I have an HDMI 1.4b certified SlimPort/MyDP dongle) which also works flawlessly in regards to audio, even up to 8 channels. The NetGear HDX Certified device though only outputs 2.0 PCM. It's watchable, but nowhere near as enjoyable as other devices.
