    I have searched for this, and have only found to buy chromecast which is not an option...
    I am running 5.1.1, connecting to a Samsung 5300 series smart TV with screen mirroring. I watched some footage from the N4 I recorded, shut everything off and left the room.
    My wife wanted to view it 2 min. later. Walked back to the TV, turned S/M "on" on the phone and now they see each other and attempt to connect, but get a " failed to connect" on the phone.
    Minutes ago, I watched 5 different videos with no issues.
    I have tried rebooting both....
    cleared defaults on both, and reestablished " they do see each other"
    tried Samsung screen mirror patch from Play Store. app says " no patch required
    tried removal and re-insert sim card
    Any ideas, I am at a loss?
    Thanks, Jason

    I have exactly the same issue. Screen mirroring was working perfectly with my new TV last week. Tried to use it last night and although the 2 devices can "see" each other, screen mirroring wont work. I can tap the tv icon on my phone to connect, my tv then asks do I want to accept the connection, I say yes but nothing happens and the connection attempt times out.

    Hopefully someone on here has figured this out and will respond. I'd like to use my smart TV
