I have a vizio smart tv which recognizes my g780 wirelessly, but cannect figure out how to get tv to project what is on my laptop screen.  Is it possible to connect wirelessly?

 

Or do I need something like chromecast?

Hi BLM17961,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the forum!

 

What Vizio smart TV you got? It will detect your laptop as it's on the same network and It could be possible but you may need additional hardware/software in order to connect wirelessly. Chromecast would be a good choice, are you currently using a HDMI cable to link them up? Maybe a wireless HDMI box would also be a good idea.

 

Hopefully this link will be of some use.

 

Let us know how you get on!

I have an E90i-B1E tv.  It does recognize the laptop - but the laptop does not recognize the tv.  I cannot use a cable due to locations, but would like to be able to mirror the screen.  The tv can play music or downloaded vides, but I cannot figure out the mirroring.  I think I can borrow a chromecast to test that, but am not sure how to connect it.
