Turn on Screen Mirroring on Samsung Galaxy Note II and Share Your Phone's Screen to the TV
Edited by Jerry Rivers, Lynn, Traveller, Liezel and 5 others
We can do so much with our smartphones, but there’s no doubt that sometimes a bigger screen can be better. With Screen Mirroring, it’s possible to duplicate your Galaxy Note 2’s display on your television, offering an easy way to show off your photo albums and play videos on your TV. You can also wirelessly stream internet games, music, videos and movies, and hear it all on your TV sound system as well. It’s everything you love doing on your smartphone, but big enough to share with friends and family.
So, how do you do it? Well, if you have an HDTV or another device that accepts HDMI input, you can easily connect your Galaxy Note 2 by using a Samsung AllShare Wireless HDMI Display Adapter. It is also called the AllShare Wireless Hub/Dongle."
Note: Before purchasing the Allshare Cast device, consult your TV manual to find out if it is compatible with a wireless HDMI display adapter. It must say that it is DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatible.
If your TV is DLNA compatible connect both it and your Galaxy Note 2 to the same wireless network. Next, go on your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and open Settings > More Settings > Nearby Devices. Your TV model will pop up on the Note 2 display. With this capability, you will be able to play any music videos and movies that are stored on your Galaxy Note 2 onto your TV screen. You will also be able to display photos. Unfortunately, there are limitations to what you’ll be able to do. If you’re looking to mirror streaming media from the internet, you will need to purchase an AllShare Cast Hub to connect your devices with.
Here’s a quick guide to help you set up an AllShare Cast dongle and share media with your TV.

EditQuestions and Answers
Is AllShare Screening Mirroring compatible with Samsung TV?
Yes, but not all Samsung TVs support AllShare framework such as the Galaxy Nexus. Also, the Samsung UN46C8000XC is not WiFi compatible, so you will need to buy a Samsung WIFI dongle to get it to work. Screen Share or AllShare framework is a feature that has been added, in which you can mirror a screen of one device to the screen of another. If you really want to use the AllShare framework, you will need a Samsung TV that was released in 2013 or later, because this feature is currently only available or supported on the latest Samsung Smart TV. Remember that most Media Share features, like video stream, work properly on many Samsung TVs, which only support AllShare.

My S4 is having the same problem. When I brought it to customer service’s attention, they notified me that the bugs were in the process of being fixed.

I have an HD TV how to enable dlna in the TV?
Did you know that all DLNA certified products have this feature available already? Meaning that the DLNA ie enabled already, so you do not need to do any configuration aside from having them on the same network to meet with each other.
It is important that all of your devices are DLNA certified to share and view contents from one device or the other.
Here are the steps on how you can connect a Sharp TV to the local network:
1. Turn your TV on, and then press the Menu button on the remote. 2. On the menu screen, navigate to the Setup on the top right screen. From the submenu, select "Picture Settings" – it looks like a spanner symbol – and select "Network settings," then press OK. 3. On the next screen, another menu will appear. Select "Connection Type" and select either wired or wireless, then confirm it. Once you have confirmed it, your TV will now be connected to the local network and be ready to go.
The steps may be different from the television that you owned. However, most operate on the same principle. If you are not sure if the television you have is a DLNA certified, you can go to this link: http://www.dlna.org/consumer-home/look-for-dlna/product-search to check if your device is capable of sharing content. You can also check the TV product information or the packaging box for a DLNA logo.

The TV that you are using does not allow you to connect your device to it. You will need to use a console or other HDMI streaming solution to view content on the TV.
How to enable DLNA on your TV?
Enabling DLNA on a television depends on the brand that you own, although the settings can usually be found in the settings menu and some even have it enable by default. Also, not all models are supported by DLNA, so you should double check to see if it’s supported. In order for you to check if the product is being supported by DLNA, you can go to this web site http://www.dlna.org/consumer-home/look-for-dlna/product-search and check if the model is currently supported.
If I am going to use a screen mirroring, what will happen to the other person that is trying to receive the movie? What will he or she needs to do?
Remember that there are only two devices will be in use for the screen mirroring. One is your Android device, and the other your compatible Samsung LED or Samsung Smart TV. If you are going to use screen mirroring from your Android device to your big TV screen, then the person who is using that TV will lose access to it. Whenever you are going to use Samsung Screen mirroring, what you need to do is to have both devices connected to the same local network and synced using your Allshare Cast. If you are not referring to a big TV screen and wants to know what will the other person do. Where he is using a Laptop, the suggestion above can be applied as well, but with some exceptions. Let’s say that you have connected an extended screen to your non-Samsung computer or Laptop. By phone sharing on your computer, you can simply drag the phone’s screen to the second display and then maximize it to watch movies or pictures. That setup could allow the other person to continue doing what they are doing while your phone is on the other screen.
I cannot find "More Settings" from the given steps, where can I find this?
This Setting is found in “Settings” (it may sound funny, but it’s true). If you have your phone in your hand, simply go to the main screen or Home screen and then tap the Soft Menu Key on your phone. It will light up when you tap it, and it looks like a square with three lines in it. Once you tap it, you will see a pop-up menu on your screen and the bottom part will say "Settings". Tap that option and you will see four tabs on your phone screen: Connections, My Device, Accounts and More. The “More” is what you’re looking for, so tap that option and continue on to the next steps for doing an AllShare Cast mirroring.
