Re: Telstra-TV - a nice little feature - Casting and Mirroring

The only way I know to cast media to the Telstra TV is to use Miracast. With Mircast you can use the Telstra TV as a second screen for your PC or to duplicate the PCs screen. There are instructions for using Mircast on a Windows 10 PC here

 

On the Telstra TV make sure Mirroring is set to Prompt or Always allow

Settings > System > Screen Mirroring > Screen Mirroring Mode

Thanks for the reply. I have tried exactly what you suggested and still the same. I haven't got a miracast but yesterday everything was casting without a problem. I have just spent 3 hours trying to fix it but still wont cast. It seems the laptop is connecting with the telstra box but will always revert back to the apps screen. I appreciate your time, Thanks again

This could happen if your PC has been added to the list of blocked devices. Check Settings - Screen Mirroring - Mirroring Devices
If your PC has been added to list of Blocked devices remove it from list.
