    My firetv for some reason removed mirror casting, and I really want to take advantage of my note 20 ultra's Dex. Can I use Dex with chromecast?

    You can't use it for DeX but you should be able to use it for screen mirroring

    Plug it in with a cable.
    I'm not sure which Miracast dongle will work for wireless Dex if your TV doesn't, I'll be looking into it though as I am getting the NexDock Touch this month (hopefully) and it would be cool to make it wireless

    Here is the one we use.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...cUvbUpU6851922

    Plugs into the HDMI and then to a USB port for power.

    Thanks. Any other solutions? That's kind of pricey just for DeX

    It works with Roku. Maybe you can one of those for a lower price.

    No way really? Didn't know it worked with Roku. I'll have to test it later.

    Yep, confirmed on two different devices. A Roku TV and on a Roku Express+.

    There a link on that page that says they're is a better model that is $40. Perhaps that's more palatable?

    Edit: checked Best buy and they have it for the same price. I also have a $15 reward that I didn't know what to do with (most things I wanted were almost $15 cheaper on Amazon anyways), so I just ordered one. 🤓

    Roku is based on Miracast technology, I don't own a Roku but every TV I encounter with Roku built in lets me cast to it.

    Samsung used to sell a usb c to hdmi adapter that does this. I got it a few years ago with one of my preorders

    Can you use a mouse and keyboard when mirroring?
    09-11-2020 10:02 PM

    Never mind found my answer:

    A second potential issue is that Wireless DeX is literally a remote display only. Because there’s no hub in the middle—or, in the case of the DeX for Windows, no Windows PC in the middle—you can’t take advantage of an attached keyboard or mouse and use the desktop interactively as you would with a Chromebook, Mac, or Windows PC. That said, you can of course still connect to a Bluetooth keyboard and/or mouse to your phone and go completely wirelessly.

    Has anyone found any other adapters that work flawlessly with Dex? Looking for minimum input lag

    So, bought the wireless display adapter v2 today..... It's OK so far, just disappointed there seems to be input lag and I'm pretty close to my TV. Are there any tips or tricks to minimize that? Maybe settings wise?

    To update: I bought a wireless keyboard/mouse combo (with the USB adapter) and it works. ONLY thing is, I had to plug the USB in the adapter that came with my phone (S10e) and plug it into my charging port, so I use my wireless charger to do it. The only thing I'm nervous about is that the screen NEVER cuts off, so I'm worried about my phone possibly running hot after heavy use of this.
