    Cannot display Desktop on smart TV


    I have been trying for a long time to get my Windows 10 Desktop displayed on my smart TV, which has a setting for receiving wireless signals. EDGE (Chromium) reporting 'source not supported' is only one of several troubling notifications. A likely issue is that I am not now able to switch Wireless on, since I started using an Ethernet cable --- even when the cable is removed. In the past either Ethernet or Wireless connected automatically when the other was removed, or failed. Probably this is behind the 'no devices' found notification , when I re-connect the cable in order to access this Forum. Wireless is shown as not connected and the re-connection options offered are in 'X' hours time (what use is that?), plus 'Manual' which does not respond when clicked. 'Show available networks' shows the Hub as connected via the cable but not via WiFi when the cable is disconnected.

    There are other issues, involving Chromecast and AnyCast but clearly I must get Wireless back again first. I keep reading that Windows 10 can now display on other devices, without the dongles but even with them I am not able to get other than Chromecast working.

    Hi, I played with this- I can cast mp3 or video files to my smart TV which is DLNA compatible, via my router, PC & TV being connected to that.

    To project to a TV (i.e. your PC screen), however, requires that it is Miracast compatible.

    There may be solutions using other hardware as you mention.
