Windows 10: Can't connect to Miracast
I suspect this is an ugly DRM problem -- Hollywood / Netflix and other people are getting so paranoid about "Pirating" etc and also with ultra 4K UHD (and soon even 8K UHD) TV available who'se going to sit in a movie theatre with a load of young kids messing around on mobile phones etc during a movie.
Windows 10 seems to have more Miracast etc. type of restrictions than W8 - a get around sometimes is to use a CHEAP (the expensive ones have DRM protection) HDMI splitter and then you might find Miracast "magically starts working again".
Even if you only have or are using 1 HDMI slot on your TV the splitter still works --just leave the second output empty. In this case the splitter simply removes DRM - but you must use the unbranded cheap Chinese ones -- expensive ones keep the protection.
A branded cheap one that works (I use it on a SKY Q box to record programs on to TV via a capture device ) is the NEET powered one -- cost around 17 EUR for 1080p pass thru splitter (2 way) or around 29 EUR for the 4K pass thru.

for 1080p this works a treat even on SKY Q boxes which are absolutely RIDDLED with DRM. Note UK price includes wallet busting 20% VAT which outside UK / EU you won't have to pay.
All these DRM restrictions don't actually stop piracy or file sharing --they just cause more aggro for LEGITIMATE users --after all you wouldn't expect to be told when you buy a car to only use a particular gas station to fill up would you. !!

I had this problem on an older desktop computer that had a 2nd generation I7 processor and a 2011-era motherboard. The solution was simple. It required upgrading the hardware, primarily the display adapter and the wireless network adapter. My research showed that I needed an Nvidia display adapter that had the "Maxwell" technology and an Intel based network adapter. I was able to resolve all of my Miracast problems by getting an Nvidia Geforce GTX 950 video card and an Intel Desktop Wireless Adapter-AC-7260. After installing both items, Miracast started working.
Is your problem fixed?, this thread seems inactive.
To see if your device supports miracast: press 'start button' and 'p' at the same time if you see 'project to a wireless display' you do have miracast.
Assuming you have miracast.
Go to settings devices and printers, the connected devices, click on your TV the click remove device.
restart your computer.
try connecting to a wireless display as above with wifi on, and wifi off
When I connect to wireless display to SONY TV via PTV3000, I cannot hear sound from TV, though I can see video in Windows10. In windows 8.1, I could get both sound and display with out any problem. Any solutions, Please.
I recently tried to update my 2nd computer from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I had no problems updating my computer, but I could get MySQL Server to work. I had to restore back to Windows 8.1
Did any of you encounter a similar problem?...
Having this Issue since day 1, only Hotmail connected instantly all other wont connect giving one error to another few examples:
This is happening with Gmail, in yahoo mail it connects but doesn't sync, and keeps asking for password...
Haven't found other threads dealing with this, but I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to get my wireless display adapter working properly in Win10 (worked great with my Surface Pro 3 with Win 8.1 - I'm on Win 10 build 9926 at the moment).
I finally got around to installing Windows 10 TP and I'm having trouble connecting to the Internet.
I'm using a wireless network adapter and I'm quite sure that there are no drivers for it to work on Windows 10. Is there anyone...
