Intel WIDI is discontinued.

AMD uses Miracast wireless display-- see the requirements--

Thank you.

How can I tell if my Inspirion 15 5555 supports Miracast? My goal is to stream my laptop's screen to my TV.

Since it is working partially (the audio is slow), I would like to know if I have an issue with laptop or it's not supported from the first place in this model.

Thanks,

Gadi

The link below explains why Intel dropped WiDi.  It may also help explain why Miracast isn't always a seamless technology.

Thanks.

I bought this laptop ( Inspirion 15 5555) because the seller said it could mirror my laptop's screen to the TV.

I'm having slow audio issues. I don't know if my laptop is supposed to support WIDI or Miracast or any other screen mirroring option. How can I find that out?

I need to know whether it has that feature, and then I'll take it to the Dell lab for repair, or doesn't have that feature and then I will contact the seller.

Thanks,

Gadi

It won't support Widi since it's not an Intel system.  It is AMD and should have miracast support.

Thanks. Does it support screen mirroring, for example by Miracast?

That's what Miracast is - screen mirroring.  Yes.

Ok, thanks. I have an issue with it that the audio is slow (for example, the voices are in low pitch). How can I solve it?

Is this with media streamed from the notebook, or from an online source?
