I will presume that < most > of the viewers here have a Surface Tablet of some variety. Do you have one of the new UHD TV'S? If so, can you mirror your Surface to the TV WITHOUT using any form of adapter? You < should > be able to ... depending possibly on the TV brand whether it carries the Miracast capability or not. My original version Surface Pro will put the Start Screen on the TV for one second and then it disappears. Tech support doesn't want to hear about it. I have a Sony tv and Samsung owners have the same kind of problem. But I'm curious if all UHD tv's have this problem or if it works with, maybe, a Vizio or LG tv. Have you tried it? Check your tv's manual if necessary and find out about it's inputs. The Sony has an input labeled MIRROR which is expressly stated is for mirroring smartphones and TABLETS to the tv. Other brands may use a different technique but most are probably supposed to be capable of this. People report smartphones work but tablets don't ... at least Surface tablets. Haven't seen anything about other kinds of tablets. Anyway ... if you'd like to participate --- try to mirror your Surface to your UHD TV and report back whether you can get it to work or not and what brand and model you are trying with. These units < should > work out of the box without buying Microsoft Miracast adapters.
