    I think I'm going with miracast since it's built into bb10 already. Can anyone recommend or post a link to something for the Q10 with a Sony bravia 40 inch hdtv???

    Good suggestions there from a wide array of prices. Personally, I dislike Miracast in general. It's flakey and the lag at times is dreadful but that's just me.

    Chrome Cast is better as long as you sideload the chromecast app
    You don't have to remain in the movie to play it and it frees up your device while it plays your Netflix crackle etc

    Miracast will not allow you to exit out of the movie without interrupting it as it is screen mirror
    Chrome Cast also is 35bucks

    Chromecast is a joke. Good luck with local video streaming, and good lucking playing media over a slower WiFi connection.

    But if you use play on /play to device you can swipe to another app. I do it all the time. Swipe up check email while a youtube video or video from library is playing. I'm using a netgear ptv3000

    Yeah. I just use play on. Integrated, requires no dongle. Why buy any of these?

    I want something that just works. With locally stored videos, youtube or whatever. Also with my macbook pro and streaming hulu, youtube or iTunes.

    For your wants, yes. Chromecast is next to useless on BB10.

    That's why when the miracast argument gets brought up I laugh. Miracast sucks. It's light and buggy and I'd rather pay for a Roku or Apple TV then use it. To me using an iPhone with Apple TV is night and day better than Miracast. Again this is if you have an iOS device but airplay works beautifully and it's not even close claiming miracast is as good when it just flat out isn't up to par yet.

    I use Miracast all the time, can watch movies from YouTube no problem at all. Bought a Netgear push 2tv adapter and works like a dream.

    Can't comment on Apple TV or Chrome cast, but very happy with it.

    Hope this helps

    I have exactly the same. It's good, pending if the kids are using up the wifi gaming. So I still find HDMI cable to be the absolute best......iphone doesn't easily have true HDMI out.
