    I'm trying to figure out the easiest way of streaming content to my TV without Wi-Fi. Miracast was my first guess but after over an hour of trying, I can't get the G4 to see my Sony TV that the LG V10 had no issues connecting to. Does anyone know if I'm missing something or if the G4 just doesn't work with Miracast. And if not, is there any other way of mirroring or sending videos to a TV without Wi-Fi?

    I'm I'm not mistaken Motorola phones since, something like 2014(?), No longer support miracast. You'll need Google cast and a Chromecast or android TV I'm afraid.

    Sorry for the long delay but I did try that first. Turns out it doesn't ever see the TV. I ended up giving the phone to a relative and bought the Blu R1 HD. Haven't tried connecting it but I'd guess it'll have the same issue

    micracast support has been removed in moto series, as while enabling micracast you will not able to connect to external INTERNET. only one of the options is viable in moto G phones either choose micracast, but while casting your wifi internet access is gone. you can enable micracast by changing some conf. files by rooting your device. Its totally your wish.

    I had the same issue with Miracast. Having mostly fixed the issue, I would not recommend turning it on unless you already planned to root your phone. Like iambruv said, you have to root your phone, then flip a flag in one of the config files (I believe it's the same one that previous moto's had disabled).

    Once this is done, Miracast will be enabled, however you can only cast non-protected content... so basically YouTube. Hulu/Netflix will cast, but only the audio. The reason has something to do with hdcp. I have not found a way to disable hdcp for the Moto G, only some vague mentions of having to recompile the kernel with the hdcp flag turned off, however without detailed instructions, I am not that adventurous.

    Also, the Miracast is very hit or miss. My Sony Blueray player sometimes accepts it and when it does it is very laggy. Mostly I use a Microsoft HD-10 to cast to which works most of the time. Sometimes it will lag, but not nearly as bad as the other one, I just pause the video I'm watching and that normally fixes it.

    For Netflix and Hulu, I've resorted to popping my sim into my Lumia 735 and that works really well for casting.
