MIRACAST

The editor of AWIND shared with you in the article “How do I make my computer Miracast compatible?” the Dxdiag.exe command has tested whether the computer supportsMiracast, but that article is mainly to help you fix the MIRACAST software driver, wireless docking station and other issues. I will mainly introduce to you, what does the data detected by the Dxdiag.exe command mean.

Computer MIRACAST screen projection function quick diagnosis-Dxdiag.exe command detection

1. The WIN+R combination key starts “run” the program [the field between Ctrl and Alt+R];

2. Enter “dxdiag.exe” in the input box of the “Run” program, and make sure [It won’t jump out immediately, it usually takes 5-10 seconds to jump out of the DrectX diagnostic tool page];

3. Pop up the DrectX diagnostic tool, select “Yes” to start the test;

4. When the detection progress bar disappears, it means the detection is complete, “Save all information” to the desktop;

5. Open the saved TXT file and search for “Miracast” by Ctrl+F. If the following words are found, Miracast function is not supported;

Miracast: NotAvailable means not supported, Miracast:: Available, withHDCP means support.

Computer miracast projection requires our system. The graphics card and network card support the miracast protocol, so we need to continue to check whether the network card driver and graphics card driver support.

[Supported] indicates support;

[NotSupportedbyWiFidriver] indicates that the wireless network card driver is not supported, and you can upgrade the wireless network card driver at this time.

[NotSupportedbyGraphicsdriver] means that the graphics card driver is not supported, and you can upgrade the graphics card driver at this time. If one of the discrete graphics card and the integrated graphics card does not support, you can choose to use the supported graphics card.

If the above tests clearly indicate that our computer supports the MIRACAST screen projection function, then our computer can project the computer screen to a smart TV that supports MIRACAST through the MIRACAST protocol.

Because I have encountered such users before: mobile phone projection TV is OK, computer projection TV is also OK, but mobile phone projection computer is not good, this is because our computer does not support wireless display. Need to use netsh wlan show drivers command for wireless display test, and computer support is needed.

① Run the cmd command line window through the window+R shortcut key.

②Enter the command “netshwlanshowdrivers”.

③Check if it supports wireless display.
