    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.

    I have 4.1 but I am hoping there will be roms down the road with Miracast functionality. I also would like to use my pc with it

    Force close on most things and I don't want to use the remote for games. It is the Equiso that was on kickstarter. The remote that game with it works on pcs as well, that was nice
