Hi, I have a problem with Screen Mirroring S5 mini to Hama HDMI dongle?

It connects OK. All Screens are shown as long as there is no Movie or TV signal. Example: TV Apps like Wilmaa or Zattoo show everything except the life TV. What could that be? It does work with a S4 mini.

Media sharing and screen mirroring?

Best way to screen mirror my Samsung S5 to my PC, I want to be able to use all my apps on my phone and also control the movies and music I have saved on my PC all from my Samsung phone and then send that image from phone/PC to my TV, i.e. send the mirror image straight to my TV if I could but my TV model is a Samsung PS64D550 and although it supports AllShare my phone doesn't it is too new and the upgrade in software don't allow it plus I would really like to control the whole thing from my phone and be able to use my app on my phone like sound-cloud and AllShare doesn't allow that??? having the same exact image on my phone as well as my TV would also make it easy for people at parties to see on screen what they want me to play like songs etc???
