WIDI on Windows 8 not working

I have a new Inspiron 15R SE.

I am not able to use the WIDI. I keep getting error messages on the adapter and also on my laptop.

I tried to download new drivers but it says my laptop is not a capable platform for WIDI.

Does WIDI work on Windows 8? I have been told I need to download the Windows 7 drivers?

Please help. By the way my adapter is a PS3.

Hi canman172,

To set up wireless display:

  2. Ensure that wireless is enabled on the computer.
  3. Connect the wireless display adapter to the TV.
  4. Turn on the TV and the wireless display adapter.
  5. Select the appropriate video source for your TV, such as HDMI1, HDMI2, or S-Video.
  6. Double-click the Intel® Wireless Display icon on the desktop.
    The Intel® Wireless Display window appears.

Re: WIDI on Windows 8 not working

Hello,
I tried the wireless display setup below.
My Intel WIDI program tells me “unable to connect to remote display”
My remote display reads – This content cannot be played (800288E1).
 
Still no luck getting the WIDI to function properly.

 Hi canman172,

If the TV has a HDMI port Refer to your TV manual to change the input or source to the appropriate HDMI port.

Certain TV’s have more than one HDMI ports, ex. HDMI-1, HDMI-2, HDMI-3

If you have connected the PS3 Adapter to HDMI-2 port on the TV, change the Source/Input on the TV to HDMI-2

Please check and reply.

Thanks & Regards,
