Samsung TV to suppoer Galaxy Note Screen Mirroring?

by cormanaz / February 24, 2014 10:59 PM PST

I am having trouble getting a straight answer out of Samsung support on this one, so I'm hoping someone here will know the answer.

I have a Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 tablet, and I am looking for a 32" 1080p Samsung TV that will support the screen mirroring feature on the tablet. I was looking at UN32EH5300 which as wifi capability and "Smart TV" but one Samsung support guy said it uses Allshare and you need Samsung Link to use screen mirroring. I talked to another Samsung support guy and he says UN32F6300 supports mirroring. However, when I check the specs it also uses Allshare and doesn't say anything about Samsung Link, and it's almost twice the price.

So my question is, do any of the Samsung models with Allshare support Galaxy Note screen mirroring in a straightforward way (by which I mean the tablet finds and mirrors to the TV automatically, without a bunch of steps, firmware upgrades, etc.), or do I need to get some particular model for this?

I added some details to what it takes to do this but in this discussion the details are incomplete.

Now before you flame about details, I agree that a consumer won't care but the devices do.

Bob thanks for replying, but I don't really understand what you're saying. Did you reply to the wrong thread by mistake?

Anyway, I took a chance and bought a Samsung UN32F5500AF, and it does support screen mirroring. So for anyone else looking for a model, the secret seems to be to go to the Samsung site for a model, check the specs tab, and if it says "screen mirroring" you're good to go. But there are models with AllShare, SmartTV, etc., that don't support mirroring, so be careful. IMO Samsung makes it stupidly complicated for people who own one of their Android devices to buy a compatible TV from them.

I have been chatting about this in another thread and here is the same topic and the same missing details.

I hear you loud and clear so either take it back to Samsung or decide if you want to reveal all details.

For example we know that only some models do this and even those models will fail on the last update until you discover a patch on Samsung's site.

As to your complicated comment, this is why folk go get Apple products. I don't want to see you upset but details to a PAINFUL depth are required and I agree this is asking a lot.
