    but what parts i need to upgrade ?

    Hi there

    @Kayn the Dogo

    If Kari's method works -- problem solved !!! otherwise :

    (I'd always look at Kari's replies -- the amount of correct tips and fixes I've got from that guy is unbelievable !!!).

    @Kari - thanks for all the good work you do around here !!!).

    Before you spend any money -- check that the TV supports Miracast (the computer is another issue).

    The easy way to test is use a smart phone -- if you can beam your phone screen to the TV then your TV is OK.

    As for casting from a computer -- should be fine - but to get full HD quality :

    For Wireless there are various options here depending on your laptop's capabilities since a few laptops have a built-in wireless system called WiDi (Intel Wireless Display) which works with a compatible receiver such as Netgear's Push2TV.

    There are also wireless systems which plug into the HDMI port on your TV and laptop (possibly the USB port on your laptop), sending the video wirelessly. These aren't generally cheap, though, and most wireless video systems have a hit on video quality and can also introduce a mismatch between video and audio.

    If you want to transmit full HD 1080p video, expect to pay around EUR 200-300 for a transmitter and receiver kit, such as the EUR 190 One for All SV1760 from Maplin or equivalent.. There's also the IOGear GW3DHD Kit which works to around 100ft (rather than 30) but costs quite a bit more.

    This solution is cheaper than buying a new computer if you are still satisfied with the computer - most computers won't have the WiDi (intel wireless display) or if they do they will be fairly expensive.

    If you are going to buy a new computer then check that it can do remote display then you won't need any "dongles" etc as your TV seems to be "Miracast Capable" as you can connect phone to it etc.

    Remember for decent Wifi projection of full screens etc you'll need a decent Wifi connection or you'll be twiddling your thumbs while waiting for your output to appear in decent HD on those lovely 50 inch / bigger UHD TV's. !!!!!

    Cheers

    According to first post, OP has a Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter (a Miracast receiver) which takes care of that. It can be plugged in to any display with an HDMI port, making even an older TV or other external display a Miracast device.

    I have 60MBS speed, my router is F-16 mate, haha
    i can return the dongle then, so buying new one is cheaper than upgrading i see, you have a point
    any good computers that can Miracast and cheap, i don't have much to afford
    the problem is my pc hardware as it looks
