Windows 10: Windows 10 Connect App - Couldn't Connect?

    Windows 10 Connect App - Couldn't Connect?


    I am trying to use the new Windows 10 Connect App.

    I have a Window 10 PC and tablet, both on the latest AU build. I also have a phone with Window 10 Mobile.

    On the PC, I connect to my Wifi network, ensure settings are setup (Settings-System-Projecting to this PC) and run the Connect App. I then try to connect using either the phone or tablet. Both see the PC as 'video' device. However, when I connect to them... after a few seconds, both give a generic "Couldn't Connect" message. No way to see any error or reasons.

    Both the tablet and phone can connect to a Roku device on the same home WiFi network. The PC is new and the WiFi supports Miracast. I has previously setup AirServer (trial) on the PC and it worked (although connecting was spotty, maybe 1 in 3 times). It has been uninstalled.

    Any ideas on how to get the connect app to work or at least see what the error is?

    It happens to me too.
    I am using Lumia 550 and it supports Miracast.
    I can project to my Sony smart TV but not on the Connect app.
    I get the same "error".
    Any fix for this?
