Wireless miracast screen mirroring with netgear PTV3000 works fine with occasional stuttering with full HD videos.
See my upload https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxZK...e_gdata_player

Gaming there is a lag sometimes with stuttering but works fine usually for videos and photos and Google music and presentations etc. Great accessory. Just hope they enable this feature for screen mirroring for my nexus 7 too soon

for those who don't have the allshare cast hub or other wireless display solution check out sku 7511057 at bestbuy.com. Best Buy has a SMALL rocketfish miracast adapter that works with the s3, s4, note 2, and anything else miracast.

Sorry for no link, I can't post URLs yet.

This looks interesting in that it looks like it can be powered entirely from the TV. But I have had Rocketfish products before and they are not that great.

I'm especially interested in the range and latency, Someone shed some light on this.

I also have the ptv3000 but my tmobile s4 wont connect. My htc one will but the s4 wont. Are you running a custom rom or kernel? And if so what are you running. Im on infamous v1.1 and using faux kernel

I don't have any miracast dongle but my guess is that you have a debloated rom which removed all share cast or something relevant to the miracast function.

I have the PTV3000 and so far I have connected my S4, Xperia ZL, Note II, S3, and my Centrino laptop.

For connecting the Note II and S3, you have to use the Samsung AllShare Cast app. It usually takes 2-3 tries to get it to connect the first time, but when it does connect to the adapter the first time subsequent connections seem to happen right away. Also, the Note II and S3 seemed to lose all wifi when connected...any data pulled from the internet seemed to need mobile data (ie. streaming Youtube means using the mobile data to get the Youtube video, and wifi is used to stream to the tv). On the S4, this limitation does not exist as both wifi and miracast works fine. I guess the S4 has an additional antenna or there is something in the ac standard that allows simultaneous transmission and download.

The range is excellent...streaming works a good 50-60 feet away. There is lag no matter how close, so I would say its not ideal for gaming, but for just sharing our screen its great.

The S4 gets really, really hot as well...say goodbye to battery life with this of course.

If you get the PTV, make sure you update the firmware as a lot of bugs were present in the previous firmware. Works great now.

no my SGS4 is stock rom (GT-I9505) and the PTV3000 worked out of the box as shown in the video and later works with updated firmware from netgear website. I have not tried the beta firmware from google forums yet. The links to all this is in my youtube video description.

I have made other uploads of this working with my dell laptop and another video showing the latency. To note the latency, rather than watch the latency video continuously, you need to pause the video intermittently on youtube and see the timer difference between my phone and TV and you will note that latency is between 250-350milliseconds. Ok for videos and photos and angry birds etc but not for any time sensitive gaming. If interested in those videos then click the link on my tag line below which will take you to my uploads on youtube

I think if you are rooted then there are some HDCP errors from what i read. So i read elsewhere that if you do the triangle away procedure then may work. I havent bothered rooting as am fine with the device as is. Its for my wife as the phone is too small for me I am waiting for the Note 3 or something better

see lag for miracast and WiDi wireless display video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-5JJhKMph8

I have the rocketfish miracast adapter and it does not work with the S4 tells me hdcp is not supported by the connected device!? But the LgOG works flawlessly with it? Anyone have any idea why the s4 gives me the error message?

samsung galaxy s3 miracast mirroring works fine
samsung galaxy s3 miracast working fine too via this adapter. No stuttering at all for videos but same lag of about 250 milliseconds but both audio and video is fine. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xkh2xbeA-qk

powerpoint slides work fine too and using the allshare cast app on the S3 powerpoint slides are shown on the TV but phone shows both slide and extra notes at bottom which isnt shown on TV. so this will be useful for presentations

one difference i noted is that video play on the S4 screen and TV but on the S3 video plays only on TV and not the phone which just shows the allshare cast app
