Did not have me install any drivers. The laptop proudly had WiDi in it's specs and just worked. Is this model known to do WiDi? Does Dell document it as WiDi ready?
What about the TV? Do other WiDi laptops work? I find Samsung to not really do WiDi and http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/UN32J5205AFXZA didn't find WiDi on the page there.
Maybe you can try Miracast next. More at http://www.howtogeek.com/177145/wireless-display-standards-explained-airplay-miracast-widi-chromecast-and-dlna/
I just bought 32" J5205 Smart TV.
I am trying to use WiDi Screen Mirroring my laptop to TV.
I have Dell XPS 17 L702x with Windows7, 2nd generation i7 2670qm processor,
Intel HD Graphics 3000, Intel Centrino Advanced N6230 Network Adapter.
I installed the WiDi software on the laptop and connected with the TV successfully.
But the problem is it is not displaying the picture on the TV screen.
All I see is the mouse cursor point with black screen and the message says "Loaing" on the upper right corner of the TV screen.
These are what I have tried so far (tried everything I found on internet) :
-Driver/Software Updates: Graphic card, Wireless adapter, Bios, Chipset, TV firmware
-Downgrading the Graphic Driver to the old one that Dell Product support page offers.
-Turning ON/OFF Ayanet+ on the Smart TV
-Disabling Intel Management Engine Interface (from Device Manager)
-Switching between Clone/Extended Mode.
-Lowering screen resolution.
-Turning off firewall / adding WiDi to the exception list.
Non of these fixed the problem.
Please, anyone has an idea what the problem is?
