  • Internet connection

Important*If you want to cast a monocular screen, you need to enable ‘Single-eyed Display’. Open your settings, select More>Connected Devices>Single-eyed Display.

  2. Switch on your TV / receiver and open the Miracast application.
    1. When Miracast is built into your TV / receiver, it may be connected to an application. However, this is not always the case; In some cases you can find the Miracast of your TV / receiver without opening an application. When your Miracast is connected to an application, it will always be pre-installed on your TV / receiver. If it is not there, you only have to switch on your TV / receiver.
