    I'm not sure exactly which features are supported on a Z30 and how - eg how to setup/configure DLNA / Miracast - but I know someone who reckons that their Z30 Miracast is very good for streaming video (not patchy, doesn't buffer, good images and sound).

    When I try to stream video from my Q10 using either the DLNA connection or Miracast to the TV via an LG Blu-Ray player, the video and sound are both very patchy - but I had always assumed that this was a network/TV issue, as opposed to my Q10 not functioning correctly.
    The 'fiddly bit' for me, has always been at the TV / Blu-Ray player end, the Q10 side of things is really easy.

    I regularly connect to DLNA Projectors for presenting slide shows (no sound) and this always works fine - though again, the stress is always in configuring the projector, and not the Q10 (sometimes you have to stand on a table to press buttons on a ceiling mounted projector, as the remote control doesn't have the functionality to set up for DLNA!).

    This document may be of some use: Share your media files with DLNA Certified devices - User Guide - BlackBerry Q10 Smartphone - 10.2.1

    Have a search for Miracast on the forums here, I know that there were a lot of threads and hints & tips posted last year

    I prefer to use one of the Miracast dongles.
    Two that I have tried and both work are
    - The Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter
    - Netgear PTV3000

    They both work fine on both my Z30 and the Passport.
    The Microsoft one would be my preference.

    They let you share whatever is showing on your screen.
