Miracast and Movies


New member

Hi Folks,
Not sure if this is the correct forum, as I am new here, but here goes.

I have a Dell Venue 8 which has the Miracast capability. I purchased the Rocketfish stick with hopes of watching a movie I rented from Google Play on a larger TV.
I updated the firmware on the Rocketfish and all seemed well. I can see the screen of the device on my TV. I then tried to view a movie rented from Google and I got a message that said the movie could not be played because of security.

I have since returned the Rocketfish and my question is this. Is my problem caused by the Rocketfish or is this something that none of the Miracast devices will do? For example would the Netgear Push2TV work.

Any help appreciated.
