    After install a not-owned/connected display popping up in Win10 & 8.1?


    After installing Windows 10 Pro 10586.14 in VMware Fusion on my Mac Pro this - not by me owned nor connected - display has been popping up on my system in both Windows 10 (VM) and Windows 8.1 (native EFI bootable SSD)

    TIA & Cheers

    According to Google, this is a Bravia Android TV. It would have wireless capability so could be in a home or apartment near you.

    If you have admin access to your wireless access point or router, you can block the MAC address for the Bravia device. If you tell me what kind of boundary device (WAP or router with wireless capability) you're using, I'll see if I can help you run down the manual that will explain how to do this. Alternatively, if you don't mind doing a bit more work, you can set up your device to recognize only MAC addresses that are known to you (from your authorized devices, in other words) and block all other MAC addresses from being recognized. This will be a pain if you ever want visitors to use your network, but is the safest strategy for network admittance (deny by default).
    HTH,

    ^^^^ Thanks a bunch Ed for you reply. I'll do it the other way around and block the Bravia Mac Address.

    Your wireless router, whatever make it is, is giving this device a limited connection to your network.

    However it is a dumb device - being a display, it can accept streams or casts from your devices, it cannot break into your system without a WPA2 password, which I assume is the protection level you use.

    All wi-fi devices broadcast their Mac addresses - unless told not to.

    Filtering or blocking Mac addresses, is a bit of a non-solution:
