I initially attempted to us a ChromeCast device that didn't work. Bought the Anycast initially for viewing DJI mini drone iPad image via DJI goggles. Worked. Very little lag. Further, after experimenting on how it works, now using it to project iPhone and iPad images to big screen TV via Airplay. Finally, Anycast used as a means to share drone images from controller device such as iPhone to a larger screen in the absence of a typical Wifi connection where the Anycast SSID serves as a bridge to another Apple device such as Mac Book Pro. I don't know how this will work on other platforms such as Android but on-screen instructions provide instructions.
Geezus, this product has the most confusing instructions and does not clearly indicate if your source MUST HAVE Miracast or is Miracast compatible! I've spend maybe at least 4 hours trying to see why my Windows 10 laptop isn't mirroring to my TV and after some long research on the web, I find out that my computer system MUST HAVE OR MUST BE COMPATIBLE to have Miracast! Just horrible! I was able to mirror my iPhone very easily. But mirroring my Windows - based system was a pain! I'm taking back this item. Please be MUCH MORE CLEAR on the instructions AND system requirements! Please for the sake of your customers wasted time trying to figure out what is wrong.
Update- If you have a Roku stick there is no need for this device. Roku setup was super easy and had no lag. Wish I knew that before getting this thing.
Got it to sorta work twice and then it didn't. Contacted the company. They were quick, but their instructions did not match up with what I was seeing from the product. After I told them that, they sent me the same instructions. I don't care how many times you tell me to do something, if the product doesn't give me the chance to follow them, the instructions are useless. Unless you want to just waste the $, stay away and try something else.
So when I ordered this product, I was so excited I couldn’t wait for it to arrive. The idea of the device is great I have an old tv and I never used it bc I always though I need a smart tv to screen mirror my phone. Than I found out I didn’t! I looked up this item and I bought it. It had good reviews and it was cheap. I saw these running for 10-30$. When it arrived I quickly installed it. 5 seconds later everything on my phone I could see it on my tv. It would Just not let me watch Netflix, Hulu, movies, downloaded Movies on my phone, Or YouTube movies, like wtf? And it took me almost 30 minutes to figure out how to connect the Anycast to my home WiFi. I wonder if my devices just came damaged or something either way I Will be returning.
SO I have been searching for a product like this for about 3 month. I have Samsung devices (phones and tablets) and decided to use the Samsung allshare cast dongle. It worked but lagged all. When I ordered this device, didn't expect much but boy was I surprised. Setting it up was ok, but could be better, but once you get it setup, there is very very little lag at all, everything streams well and is better than the Samsung dongle.
Here are notes for better using the Anycast dongle: 1. Could you please check if the USB is powered with enough power? Need no less than 5V/1A power. 2. Please find the Miracast function on your phone, and cast your phone via Miracast. I originally tried plugging into USB PORT ON TV - INSTEAD USED A POWER SUPPLY AS RECOMMENDED. Using EZMIRA APP on my Android Tablet works GREAT !!
I primarily purchased this so I could cast my video conferencing screen to my tv. It is much too pixelated and there is a speech delay on the tv. This device was also not super easy to set up. It involved downloading an app and going through several different places to get it connected. A bit confusing. Overall, I wish I kept my packaging so I could return it.
It looks like a chromecast 1 generation yet it is not a chromecast, actually it works better than chromecast. Mirascreen dongle works with apple airplay, android and windows miracast, dlna, namely, it works with most mobile devices sush as iphone samsung lg huawei sony xiaomi winndow 8 windows 10 laptops etc. Another reason to suggest is the mirascreen dongle not only works on tv, it also works with other hdmi displays, projector, monitors etc. It has seperated modes for apple devices and android windows devices to ensure steady working, just press the button on the mirascreen dongle to switch between modes. One for all, no matter what devices you use, it cast to big screen easy, yet at this affordable price.
It was easy to connect to the TV. The problem is when I talked customer service. Found out th item is out of date. It has to up graded it. It won't connect to wifi to up graded. It has to up grade to connect to wifi?!?! So....how do I up grade this thing again??? Its not worth the stress. I'll see if can get a refund or a up graded one.
This worked well to cast macbook air , iphone, and ipad but today when I tried upgrading it, it stopped working. No wifi signal from it at all, so no resets, pairing, etc were possible. Tried every video tutorial possible, and the website help page. Lots of helpful stuff if you can see AnyCast XXXXXXXX in your wifi list, but nothing if the problem is the blue power light is on but no wireless signal is emitting so no recognition is possible by any devices.
