Did you manage to send your ideapad back for that reason?
I sent a complaint to my retailer about the widi/intel hd graphics and they wont take my laptop back for that reason.

I dont think its so hilarious...

A lot of people buy this laptop because of the core i5/i7 which has intel hd4000,

the intel hd4000 doesnt even work, which makes that not only WiDi doesnt work, but other programs have problems running since theyre programmed to use that HD4000

I had the track pad issue as well as the widi issue. I sent back the first laptop because of the trackpad, and they let me send the second one back as well when it was clear that there was a bait and switch re WiDi (I purchased the laptop before they removed any reference that it had WiDi from the website.) The return was no problem, by the way. I purchased another manufacturer's computer which has zero problems and I really, really like. I don't use the WiDi as often as I thought I would, so the jury is out whether or not it was worth a change. But, the third and final reason I sent back the Y500 was that baased on the trackpad problem and complaints I heard from others about other problems, I felt like I had a ticking timebomb on my hands.Still a little annoyed because the Y500 >on paper< had everything I wanted. :(

I really don't know very much about MiraCast or Midi. However, I just bought a Netgear PTV3000 to display my Android tablet screen on my TV. I tried to follow the instructions for installing the latest update of the Intel Wireless  Display drivers on my Y500. However, the update fails? Is there no way to get this model to share its display wirelessly?
