    We recently got a new SonyXBR 850B TV and it is a so-called " smart tv " with wireless wi-fi built in and a lot of apps.

    Under the Input section there is something called Mirroring. Reading the instructions it appears it would need something called Miracast to put something from this Surface Pro ( original ) on screen of the TV.

    Is that software or hardware?
    Has anyone used it with the Surface Pro 1?
    Has anyone mirrored a Surface to one of these 4K TV's?

    Thanks for the response and link.

    When I tried the Chromcast there was a HUGE delay. However, I have also installed a new modem and router since then which are DocSys 3.0 and my old one's were not.

    But, since the TV can connect to my desktop and laptop and PS3 via the wireless network, why not to the Surface as well? It seems that the dongle enables the TV to access the wireless network but this TV can already do that.

    hmmmmm....

    I seen other users having Miracast issues with the Sony TV's with the Surface Line, currently it is up to Sony to update their Firmware to support other devices beside those using Broadcom Adapters....
