    Unhappy Philips 58pus6809/12 miracast not working

    miracast is not working on my tv, it does not show my tv in the Wireless tv list on my android phone, i have tried miracast with a sony smart tv and it Works fine with that so there is no problem with my mobile phone. i have turned on miracast in the options menu of my philips tv, but still it is invisible, it only shows in the wifi-direct menu of my mobile phone and when i try to connect to it, it does not go further from Step 1/2 connecting.......

    there was an older firmware installed on my philips tv, then i updated it with the newest firmware (012.003.006.128) which is on the support site, it did not solve the problem, i also have problem with the Network, when i turn ON the tv i have to connect it to wifi Network each time because it does not auto connect.

    can anybody help me please? Thanks.

    Did you check your setting? You have to activate Miracast and another setting to allow streaming there. Please advice the manual for the proper setting.

    Good luck, works as a charm at mine!

    Thanks for your answer, i have checked all the settings, Wifi-Miracast is ON, Wi-fi media playback is ON, Wifi smart screen is ON, so i dont know what is the problem, some days ago the TV made a wifi hotspot called philips direct tv, and now that is not showing in the wifi list.

    I had this problem too. Turns out it's a phone's problem (especially with android 4.4.4), not the TV's. Which smartphone do you use? If it's a Nexus 5, installing a nightly build of CyanogenMod 11 did the trick for me.

    i have huawei ascend p6 with android 4.4.2 kitkat, i dont know if it is the phone, because i tried miracast on my friends sony smart tv and it worked fine there. i have read in another forum that philips tv supports only Miracast certified devices that do not use the HDCP standard via Miracast, so it might be that my phone uses hdcp, i tried to disable hdcp but i cant find it anywhere in the android settings.

    Normally, it's under Settings -> Developer Options (which you have to activate under Settings -> About by tapping the build number 10 times) on your Huawei Ascend P6. If it's not there, you might consider installing a custom rom.

    Hi,

    please install the latest TV firmware 3.010 - it fixes Miracast issues.
