are you on 4.2? As far as I can tell that is the first android with miracast support. You will also need a miracast dongle for your tv.

nothing really out yet. everything out now (some netgear products, for example) are not certified for the final version of miracast. keep an eye on the miracast certification website.

so you want to use your smartphone to control the game, but look at it on the tv kind of thing?
