Most reason that the TV is not being detected by the phone is due to interference that may cause traffic to signal. The simplest way to resolve is by powering off your TV and your phone and do the same steps again this is for AllShare and both devices must be connected to the same network.

Another reason is due to DLNA. Your Television must be a DLNA certified to push the images from phone to TV and Miracast is require to connect to AllShare for using AllShare.

First get your TV setup to be used. Press input then select screen mirroring. Now on your device go to Menu, Settings, Connections(or Wireless Networks), then select Screen Mirroring. Now just move the slider to the on position and select your TV from the list.

If you wish to connect your S3 or Samsung Smart TV to your computer, yes, it is possible by using an HDMI cable (http://screencast.com/t/kWur8qDG) from your TV to your computer.
