WiDi(Mirroring) displaying no picture on TV

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?

Oh, my apology I forgot to add the TV's spec.
It's comes with screen mirroring(AllShare), and WiFi Direct feature.
I believe screen mirroring is compatible with the WiDi technology.
and for the laptop, it did not say anything about WiDi,
but for what I know through internet research,
the WiDi requirements are,
-Intel i3, i5, i7 Series CPU
-Intel HD Graphic
-Intel Wireless Network adapter
-Intel Wireless Display Software

and I also have already verified that all the required devices on my laptop
are WiDi compatible products :
-i7 2670qm processor
-Intel HD Graphics 3000
-Intel Centrino Advanced N6230 Network Adapter

Phone is working

In reply to: TV

I just tested a galaxy phone, which screen mirroring connected
and actually displaying the picture.
I was also wondering if the TV is defect but it seems like it is working,
so maybe WiDi compatibility issue or the laptop has wrong drivers.
Still cannot figure out how I can fix it...

Folk have reported Samsung phone and tablets work.

In reply to: Phone is working

But you want it from the PC which means more work. I noted some issues such as WiDi is not what all the Samsung TVs I've seen use as well as alternatives.

Screen mirroring is a feat. It's far from ready to use from what I've seen except when the maker paves the road as you see from your phone.

Wrong TV..

Yor are very correct.
I just received an answer from Samsung.
Screen mirroring is not compatible with laptop.
Too bad I understood the technology wrong.
I will have to stay with the HDMI connection.
Thank you for your help.
