    I just replaced my Z10 with a new Z30 today. I have ordered for a USB OTG cable and a HDMi out cable for my phone online.

    I am not able to figure out how exactly miracast on my phone will work and what do I need for it? I am from Mumbai in India and the retailer I bought my phone from has no idea what I'll need for miracast to work on my phone. I saw it's functionality on the Z30 review of DadDoes.com and I think it will work wonders for my work.

    Any help is appreciated.

    The device your Z30 will be sending the feed to has to be compatible with Miracast. Check the projector/tv's specs to find out.

    If it isn't, you can get one of these and party all night!

    Hmm I don't think miracast needs wifi to work, just a receiver to receive the signal like an adapter/dongle

    To use Miracast you need a Miracast receiver in a video monitor or attached to a video monitor using an HDMI cable. Miracast allows you to send the image of your Z30's screen to another video monitor wirelessly.

    Is it possible to stream through miracast when using wifi, for example Netflix? or does the wifi antenna does one thing at a time?

    I have a 2013 Samsung smart tv and the miracast works great with the z30. What I found is that for lower resolution stuff (netflix, Youtube, etc.) works fine. When I stream 1080p video I took with the phone, there is an audio lag on TV (i.e. sound wasn't catching up to the picture). This doesn't happen when I use miracast from my Windows 8 laptop onto the TV. I'm not sure if it's a software thing or a hardware limitation.
