Surface Pro 3 can Play To TV but not Project

I got an epic Samsung 75" UHD 4k 3D etc. (UN75HU8550F) TV. Unfortunately, my epic surface pro 3 will Play To it when I'm in an app but refuses to Project to it (screen mirroring). When I try to connect through screen mirroring or WIDI, it will say connecting to [my surface's name] on the tv but then invariably times out.

Play works fine, except it limits me to sharing apps' content. I want to mirror screen.

Please let me know whether you have encountered this before and how to fix it!

Surface Pro 3

After hours of speaking to tech support, she escalated it to the next level of tech support and apparently this is an issue they've had before with surface pro 3 and certain miracast/WiDi devices. I am holding my breath for them to get back to me with a solution.

I do have the same problem with my surface pro 3 and my Samsung H6290. Do you have got any solution for this issue in the mean time?
