Looking media player that supports both miracast/screen mirroring & dlna
I've been moving heaven and earth to try and find a decent media player that works well with both of the above standards, and so far coming up empty.
I have a WDTV Live which handles dlna flawlessly but western digital has yet to add miracast support to any of their products as far as I know.
I tried the netgear PTV 3000 which worked pretty well for miracast but apparently lacks support for dlna.
Netgear also makes a product called the Neotv which is said to support both, but the reviews are terrible. Build quality is very poor, and despite its claim to support miracast it seems it only supports Intel widi specifically, not the open miracast standard. In any event I couldn't get it to work with my tablet despite the netgear ptv3000 working well in that area.
I'm testing out a samsung blu-ray player now, the H5900 which does have both features, and is of good quality, but samsung likes to put a spin on things.. both the miracast and dlna functions require significant manipulation of the remote before launching unlike other non samsung players that just work, and the dlna function requires proprietary samsung software to be running and open on the PC rather then just using windows built in 'play to' function as my western digital did..not to mention, seeing as I have no need or desire for the blu-ray portion, at 149.00 is fairly expensive for a media player.
That said, while I'd prefer to spend less, I will spend what it takes for a quality product. Does anyone have a recommendation for any media player that handles both the open dlna and miracast wireless standards well?
