    Miracast

    That maybe true, however when I had the SP2 connected to my routers 2.4GHz band, and to the miracast connection at 2.4GHz, the internet was never usable. If I connected to the 5GHz network for internet it would sometimes work for a while. With any extended time, the internet would stop working.

    Miracast

    For my setup everything is stock. It has only microsoft supplied windows and hardware updates through windows update. I've not installed any other drivers.

    Miracast

    I've tried several blu-ray system and most only support Android miracast. The Sony system I picked up specifically says they support both Windows and Android. I've not had problems with the screen mirroring at all. It is just the surface pro 2 that seems to behave badly.

    Miracast

    My surface is my only miracast capable device. Nothing else to test it with unfortunately.

    Miracast

    I ran some additional tests, and the router is set to 5GHz (something like channel 149), while the miracast device from Sony seems to only opera at 2.4GHz (channel 6). There are no neighbouring networks operating at or at adjacent channels. Signal strength is strong for both networks. Some...

    Miracast

    It is, the 2014 model. The miracast connection established every time. It doesn't drop the connection, and is pretty responsive. When the internet does work the surface, I'm able to stream netflix without any problems to my TV with full frame rate video and audio in sync. Othertimes I cannot...

    Miracast

    The surface pro 2 is full up to date (latest firmware and running windows 8.1 update 1), and the Miracast adapter I'm using is the bdp-s5200.

    Miracast

    I've check and the miracast player is up to date, and the miracast works great. It is just the internet access is poor about half the time on the surface pro 2.

    Miracast

    jnjroach, I do have a 5GHz and 2.4GHz network. Both seem to be about the same. Normally I default to the 5GHz network.

    Miracast

    Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't think miracast used Bluetooth though. When you turn on miracast on the device you're connecting to a new wifi network shows up. Once I've connected to the miracast device my network adapter speed (2.4G or 5GHz) my connection speed drops. When connecting...

    Miracast

    I recently purchased a miracast device, and the screen mirroring works well. Unfortunately half of the time when the display is mirrored, the internet on the surface pro 2 stops working. Has anyone else seen this, or figured out a fix?

    Electrical buzzing sound coming from my SP2

    My SP2 does not buzz, but the charger does when I have something plugged into the USB port on the charger. The sound I hear is high pitch, and I believe it to be caused by a ceramic capacitor oscillating. Since it is only on the USB power of the adapter I've not done anything about it. The...

    wake up problem - thought this is solved?

    Not to defend MS because the first broken firmware shouldn't have been released. However once the problem was found it does take time to find the problem, figure out how to fix it and make sure it doesn't break anything else. I would much rather it took them another week or two than to release...

    iTunes Audio Problem

    The problem seems to have gone away. I installed quicktime, and verified the audio settings based on other forums. The quicktime settings matched the suggested 16 bit 44.1kHz, so nothing was changed. However, after installing quicktime and verifying the video and audio in iTunes seem to work...

    iTunes Audio Problem

    Hello, I've been trying to get iTunes to play some purchased videos, however every one has choppy audio. The audio usually starts off fine, but after a few seconds is choppy then out of sync. It keeps chopping every few seconds. I've been searching the web, and trying suggested fixes but...
