Hello everyone,

I apologize in advance if it was asked before.
I have a 47LM6400 smart tv from LG with screen share function.
When I enable if and screen mirroring on S4, it finds my phone, but the phone does not find the tv.
S4 is on 4.3
Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance

On the remote press on setting and find mira cast or something along the lines, You just have to enable it.
If you still can't find it, I will take pictures and show it to you

Thanks for the reply. My TV has no Miracast support, it says it will use wifi direct, widi, etc...

Tried with my sister's Samsung TV and got the same behavior: the tv finds the phone, but the phone can't find the tv.

Well... after some time spent on the phone, it seems that only LG Smart TV's w/ Miracast support (which is not my case) can do wifi screen share. The functionality of mine is restrict to it using Intel's WiDi. Damn.
