I posted in a long thread before there was a separate forum. I had no luck with Miracast. However, a new alternative has popped up. If you have a 4.4.2 rooted device, you can download Clockworkmod Mirror beta and the receiver app, and you can get similar functionality.

You can try AllCast. It has support for Fire TV now. You will need to sideload the app to your FTV.

My FTV showed up today... I sideloaded the AllCast Receiver and AllCast works good. However mirror doesn't see the FTV at all. 4.4.2 rooted GN3. Never had a device it would work with so I'm not sure if the app is working (didn't support chromecast on my phone).
Phone: TMobile - Samsung SM-900T Galaxy Note 3 - KitKat 4.4.2 Rooted/Stock - QI Wireless
Tablet: Nexus 7 (2012) 16gb Stock Rooted - 4.4.4 w/TWRP Recovery
Droid Like Devices: Several ChromeCasts, Amazon Fire TV (rooted)

Allcast is now available in the Fire TV Appstore. No need to side load it.

Does Miracast work? I've a BlackBerry Q10 and it has Miracast screen mirroring built-in. Wondering if anyone has tried to mirror using Miracast?

Does Airplay Screen Mirroring work? My wife has an iPhone 5s and Macbook. She wants to be able to Airplay from both her iPhone and Macbook (screen mirroring).

How about support for DLNA/Play-to/Play-On ?

Cheers
