Default Screen Mirroring on non-Samsung TV???

Just bought a brand new LG TV (55LA8600) that supports miracast. I am on Phoenix Rom v7.3, rooted, Philz recovery but stock kernel. I can see the LG TV under screen mirroring and the TV can see my S4. However, when i try to connect it seems to try to connect but then fail after say 10-15 seconds. I thought miracast was a standard protocol and so my S4 should work with the LG TV but guess its not that easy. I have read and some people say the ability to connect depends on whether its rooted, custom rom, custom status, hdcp off, etc but so far found no clear anwser.

So just wondering whether anyone got the S4's screen mirroring to work with non-Samsung TV/devices. If so, what did you do??? Also do i need to install Samsung Link (formerly Allshare)????
