The wifi direct, widi/miracast are all greyed out in my tv. I am able to connect to both wifi and wired connections but these functions are still disabled. How do I enable them on my tv?

Hello verr1981.
You need to turn the function on in your TV. Using your magic remote, go to Settings > Network > then select Miracast™ / Intel's WiDi, > toggle the feature on so your TV can begin searching nearby compatible devices. There is a Re-Search button on there that you can click in the event your TV is unable to find a compatible device.^IFV

Unable to Toggle feature

I am using my regular remote to go to Settings > Network and I see Miracast/ Intel Widi both greyed out. I am unable to figure out how to "toggle" this feature on as it is greyed out on my tv.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
