Default First confimed Miracast compatible devices announced... no Nexus 7, yet.

So, just keeping everyone up to date with the development on connecting the nexus 7 to the TV.

As we all know, since there is no hdmi/mhl support a lot of us have been looking at Miracast (a wifi-display technology) as the holy grail for this feature on the Nexus 7... Nvidia confirmed it is supporting Miracast in its Tegra 3 devices a while back, and nothing has really been heard since... Until recently.

Now the first devices to support Miracast are being announced, but there is no mention of the Nexus 7. Hopefully that will change when more devices get added.

Engadget reported on this the other day:

And today netgear has released its first miracast 'reciever' devices:

I dont actually own a Nexus 7, my girlfriend does. I really want one, but have been holding off in the hopes for either a way to connect the nexus 7 to the tv or for a device similar to the nexus 7 to come out, with added tv supprt. Because of that fact, im very interested in miracast and the possibility of using it with a nexus 7. so if anyone else finds any information on this. Feel free to post it in this thread

AFAIK, Nvidia supports Miracast with Tegra 3, and Miracast was built on Wi-Fi Direct.

So, I'm guessing the Nexus 7 could be a Miracast Certified device.

Plus Nvidia did demo it.

Google or ASUS request certification.
Miracast certification is granted.
Vendor (Google) pushes update with Miracast support enabled.

Nothing yet

I have emailed both wi-fi.org and nvidia, but no reply from either of course. I dont think theres one tegra 3 device to be on the miracast compatible list yet. so maybe nvidia are still working on the code or something... The did publicly announce their support for miracast though so it cant be long now....

ESRlabs is working with the Nexus 7 and should have some news soon. They are using the raspberry pi as the interface to the HDMI video.
