    Getting confused as I do my research.

    Is this the same thing? Will a Google chromecast dongle work the same as a miracast dongle?

    I want to wireless stream music, data, pictures and video from my z30 to a monitor or tv

    No, not really. Similar, IMHO.

    Oh! Will it work on our z30's. I want to be able to stream my business presentations first and foremost.

    Need to be able to use my z30 as a power point presentation tool.

    No chromecast just streams video from the Web.

    No- totally different. Z30 supports Miracast, not chromecast.

    Miracast hardware exist in your phone, and you need a Miracast adapter for the job. You can find many threads here on CB with info, but for presentations I personally always carry a PTV3000 in my bag, and updated with latest firmware, it works more or less flawlessly with Q10 and Z30

    Actually I've seen people get chrome cast working on their BB10 so it is possible.

    If the goal is to use any of the presentation tool on BB10, then No- you cannot use Chromecast!

    How did you get the PTV3000 firmware to update? I have Z30 connected to PTV3000, have .sbin firmware file downloaded on Z30, but it won't open. I also tried entering the IP address for the PTV in the browser, but it won't open it to get to the firmware update page. Please assist. Thanks!

    Use Internet Explorer on a Windows box and see what happens?

    Some people say STL100-1's chip supports Miracast, WiFi Direct and FM Radio.. BlackBerry never cared to clarify if this is right or wrong. Very disappointing
