    Yes, several...

    1.

    I have a nice Sony TV with 1080p HDMI etc. But no WIFI.

    I bought a WD Live Media Streaming Player WDBHG70000NBK with wifi & it (firmware update gives this) supports MIRACAST which you have on bb10 (I have Passport)... works great!!!

    2.

    In another place I have a Sony TV with Wi-Fi but it does not support Miracast... I bought an EZCAST dongle off ebay

    http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53...wAAOSwKu9Txi0P

    for about $25 which plugs into an HDMI port & gets power from a USB. The EZCAST app is free & works fine.

    3.

    You could buy a HDMI cable & get an adapter since your phone microUSB does play video out. I didn't try that since the other 2 work great!! You might need a special split microUSB adapter to charge at the same time.

    First of all, check if the TV is MiraCast/WiFi direct capable, if that works, you're done

    Any mircast/chromcast is useless. Not smooth while watching video.

    Slimport/HDMI? That is probably the simplest and most reliable way.

    If the TV has DLNA, you can use Airwire (android app) to stream it to the TV.

    I didn't have good results with the Microsoft Miracast adapter and my Z30, but I regularly cast to Chromecast using patched versions of Plex, Hulu and Netflix. I am willing to try another Miracast device as the horsepower of the Passport is higher than the Z30.

    I find Miracast to be really spotty in my set up. When it works, it works great. But it does not work a lot of the time.

    I use a Slimport adapter (connect the phone by HDMI directly to TV), and find that to be the best bet for me. The harder part is finding a good video source through the phone. I cannot get Amazon Instant video to work. Many of the websites must use flash because their video feeds do not work.

    For me I set up a raspberry pi running Kodi
    $50 add a WiFi dangle for another $10, then I use Yatzee from the play store to control it over wifi.

    I now use this as a full media server to stream video from my NAS, YouTube or other "add ons" added to Kodi.

    Once set up its very easy to use. I have 3 of these set up in my house that my wife uses easily and I even set my parents ip with one.
