Is the Linx 10 able to perform Miracast - WiDi.
I have read conflicting information. I would like to purchase something like the Netgear PTV3000 has anyone tried Wireless video streaming?

It supports wireless screen mirroring yes.. I don't know if this is the same as what you're asking

I have the Measy A2W, set to Mirror mode it Acts as a Miracast receiver. It works perfectly well with the Linx 10 and my Acer tablet; there is a tiny amount of lag, fine for general use but not video playback. I believe the Netgear with the latest firmware update works with the screen mirror standards.

We've got Startech WIFI2HDMCGE boxes at work, and I can confirm that the Linx 10 connects to them OK. However, I've found variations in streaming quality with different wifi and display driver sets - basically streaming online video to the box was jerky with most of them.

I'm now running the following:
Intel HD Graphics - 10.18.10.3643
Realtek SDIO WIFI - 3007.9.1015.2014

Things seem to work well enough, although I've not tried 4K videos from YouTube.

You might notice that if you try to stream and utilise an SD card, the screen mirroring performance will take a steep nosedive - they share the same I/O bus as the WiFi is SDIO.

Has anybody tried wireless mirroring with streaming content?

I use my tablet a lot for watching Sky Go videos through the HDMI output, but the port seems to be playing up, so I was thinking of investing in a wireless solution. I'm a bit concerned though about trying to stream the video and output it over wifi at the same time!

If its anything like the NowTV app Sky Go may use protected path for video play back which is unfortunately not supported over Miracast (stupid decision in my opinion) Having said that other than streaming Miracast works really well from both Linx 8 and 10. I'm using the Microsoft dongle which whilst expensive seems quicker to render.

I've been having a play with a Roku HDMI streaming stick, this also has miracast capability (listed as beta). Providing the wifi signal on the Linx and Roku are strong, video playback seems to be fairly stable although it does lag slightly. It works better than the much cheaper Measy device I have.

NowTV and Netflix have DRM that prevent streaming from the Linx to Miracast, you'll get a warning message to that effect if you try. A weak wifi signal or heavy bandwith use on the network seems to create juddering on video playback.

Slightly off topic but its strange that Netflix allow chromecasting on android devices but not on windows devices in that case!

Did you have a problem with black horizontal lines coming up down the sides? When you set up with the Roku stick?

Thanks
