How to set up Samsung Screen Mirroring

Setting up your TV for Samsung Screen Mirroring

This is very simple if you have a compatible Samsung Smart TV. Just press the input button and then select Screen Mirroring on the TV’s display. A little more leg work is required to set up screen mirroring for a HDTV, however.

You need will to connect your All Share Cast Wireless Hub and your HDTV with a HDMI cable, change the input source so it matches that of the HDMI cable and then wait for the Hub to detect your TV. You’ll know this has happened when it blinks red. After that, press the reset button and wait for the status indicator to turn blue. At that point, the HDTV is ready for screen mirroring.

Sharing your phone’s screen with the TV through Samsung Screen Mirroring

On your home screen, tap on ‘apps’ and then ‘settings’. You will then find ‘Screen Mirroring’ under ‘Connect and Share’. Tap on the ‘switch button’ to enable the Samsung screen mirroring feature, and your phone will then conduct a search for available devices within its range. If all goes well, the available TV will be displayed at the end of the search and then it’s simply a case of tapping on it to connect to your chosen device.

Then, hey presto, your phone’s screen will be displayed in all its glory on your TV!
