Just to note, I've been using the suggest Windows 8.1 way, but it doesn't work.

try getting the laptop right next to the TV. if the TV is already showing up in the windows devices, remove it and try adding again. the TV needs to give you a pin. also check if there is an updated firmware for you TV widi adapter.

I have also spent a crapload of time on this, playing musical drivers. TV firmware is up to date, and I have tried virtually every combination of Intel graphics, wifi, and WiDi drivers. Best I ever got (and it sounds like the same point you reached, flowerdealer):

 

I do a manual search and the yoga asks me for my WPS PIN

No pin shows on the screen.  I randomly enter "0000"

As soon as I hit enter and it tries to connect, the actual pin shows on the TV

I cannot change in the middle of the attempted connection.  When I try again and enter the pin from earlier, the tv displays a "connected" message, but never even attempts to mirror the display

Yes, that's my experience exactly! That exact same order of events happened yesterday. However I couldn't replicate it afterwards.

this is very odd. with my netgear push2tv adapter, after the Lenovo laptop finds the widi adapter it shows a pin number on the TV. I type in that number on Lenovo and it installs the display/audio driver. then it is ready to use via windows + P

How can we check the widi driver version? The lenovo yoga 2 pro doesn't really come with any widi apps preinstalled, so my understanding was that it relied on the windows 8.1 integration.

Yes the signal is rediculously weak and you have to put the computer within 1 meter range to avoid latency.

 

I did plug in and set the wireless adapter to highest performance but no luck.

 

For me it's totally not usable.

 

I got a Netgear PTV3000 adapter.

Seems like the intel forums suggest installing the latest intel graphics drivers to get this to work. However, you can't install the latest driver from their website, and the driver on the lenovo yoga 2 is slightly old by comparison.
