The AllShare play is much more of sharing media contents from your Tablet to the bigger screen, such as videos and pictures. Then you can share them with your family for viewing and enjoyment. However, for screen mirroring, it is better if you use an adapter to share contents from your Tablet to the big screen, like playing games, browsing the app drawer and any other things. Make sure your Galaxy Tab 2 is compatible with the adapter.

The adapter model is: EPL-3PHPBEGXAR, this adapter is an MHL adapter that can project your actions from Tablet to your TV. However, your Tablet must be connected to it, via USB cord, for a stable connection and to mirror the screen. You may check the compatibility from this link: http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/galaxy-tab-accessories/EPL-3PHPBEGXAR-compatible

Another way for you to mirror is to use Samsung AllShare Cast. This Samsung AllShare cast is almost the same feature, but not as limited as AllShare Play. Just make sure that both devices are connected to the same network. Simply go to the home screen and tap the Soft Key Menu then hit the settings and select the AllShare Cast and select your TV, and it will automatically scan for your TV. Connect to it, and then mirror your tablets screen on TV.

Can screen mirroring support Samsung tab 2 10inch?

I just want to screen mirror my Samsung tab 2 on my TV

It should be able to do that for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, but you need to make sure you are using the latest updated version of the operating system. Also, it is best done when your TV is also a Samsung.

Screen mirroring Samsung Galaxy TAB2 (P5100)?

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and a non smart TV. I have a Google Chromecast stick and a western digital TV Miracast compatible media player connected to my TV by HDMI.

Is there any strategy to cast the screen of my Tab2 to my TV with one of these devices?

There's an app - EZ cast - which supports casting web pages without any problem, but it doesn't mirror the screen. So the hardware of the Tablet seems to allow mirroring or casting of the screen. Thank you for your answer

Screen mirroring Samsung Galaxy with Sharp TV?

I'm trying to connect my Samsung Galaxy Tablet n8000 with my TV Sharp Aquos lc-50le751v. Both of the devices are connected to the same wireless network but the IP address that appears on each one is different. Do I have to create a network proxy or something like that (I have no idea about this stuff but I think I'm able to do this with a little help). Thank you

I would like to know if it is possible to mirror two Samsung tablets together (both tablets are the same model)?

I'm working on a project in a March where I need to take photographs of vegetation in a small plot area using a tablet. The photograph must completely cover a meter square area. Since the picture will be taken from a height of about 7 feet, I will not be able to look at the screen to make sure the photo is lined up properly with the vegetation plot. I will be using a remote to press the shutter button to take the actual picture, but was wondering if I could somehow mirror another tablet to the one taking the picture so I could make sure the photo is aligned before taking it.

Screen mirroring no longer running on Galaxy Tab 2 Notepad?

My fault, actually. I was fooling around in the App Manager and disabled it just to see what would happen (assuming, of course, that I would have the option of re-enabling it later). Not just disabled - gone from the list of apps!
