    Hey guys,

    I want to mirror my 2 passports with miracast to my new Toshiba TV.

    Unfortunately, after one minute it disconnects itself - but I cannot figure out why.

    Strangely there is no real support from toshiba on this subject.

    Does anybody have an idea? - other than the 'timeout' it runs okay...

    Thanks,

    Tim

    I take it you have tried restarting both devices?

    I have exactly the same problem with a new Hitachi TV. Connects fine (which my androids doesn't), mirroring the screen nicely, but the happiness lasts just one minute ( disconnects and the TV blames me ) and I can't figure out why. Both my passports behaves the same way.

    @pkcable - restarting makes no difference....
    @mikael11 - so it seems to be a general miracast problem, doesn't it? Androids don't do it at all, bb10's at least for a minute...hmm...

    Maybe it is not compatible. I have a LG smartTV and I cannot connect my BB10 devices via Miracast.
    Maybe you could purchase a Miracast dongle which does work with BB10 and that should solve the problem.

    One just wonder with what kind of device those TV sets are supposed to work... the Passports works a minute, my PRIV and my Xperia X not at all, IOS doesn't have it.

    Maybe it is something wrong with the TV in your case. For LG I know from the forums that Miracast works with Android but not with BB10 and I accept the situation. Did you find a support forum for your specific TV?

    Thanks for asking. No I don't really care much, I use chromecast instead. Works flawless.

    Chromecast FTW! I have an Nvidia Shield TV, and I use it's built in Chromecast in a pinch. For example for some strange reason, there is no NBC Sports app for the Shield (probably Comcast at fault), BUT I just Chromecast it from one of my phones when I need to watch it.
