Questions 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 Wi-Fi compatible, so you will need to buy a Samsung dongle to get it 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 developed 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.
Yes, it is well compatible with Samsung TV. Since you will be actually using a Samsung device to connect to that TV then it could be.
In order for me to give you an exact answer I would need to know the specific tv model. Otherwise, as long as the tv can connect to your wireless network, you should be fine. The samsung device should automatically detect the tv if it is connected properly. If the tv is not wifi compatible then you may need to purchase the AllShare Wifi adapter.

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, which you do not need to do any configuration aside from having them on the same network to meet with each other. 2 things that you need to take note for sharing contents through DLNA certified devices, first if have a home local network and all devices must be a DLNA certified. 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. On your remote control, point it to the TV then press the Menu button.
2. On the menu screen, navigate to the Setup on the top right screen and there will be a sub menu and select the "Picture Settings" it looks like a spanner symbol and select the "Network settings" after then OK.
3. On the next screen, another menu will appear and select "Connection Type" and select either wired or wireless then confirm it. Once you have confirm it, your TV is now connected to the local network and ready to go.
The steps may be different from the television that you owned. However, they have the same concept on how you can connect your TV to the network to have internet access and be on the same local network. If you are not sure if the television you have is a DLNA certified, then you can go to this link: http://www.dlna.org/consumer-home/look-for-dlna/product-search for you to check if your device is capable of sharing contents. You can also check the TV product information or the packaging box if it has a DLNA logo.
Please specify any solution.

How do I use Note3 screen mirroring on HDTV monitor?
Trying to mirror note3 to Insignia 720p HDTV (a few years old?) want to operate it similar remote computer if that makes sense?
This TV that you are using does not allow you to connect your device up to it in order to perform a screen mirror process being that the TV is an old model. You will need to use a console such as a PS3 or Xbox 360 in order to mirror your devices image onto the TV.
How to enable DLNA on your TV?
Enabling DLNA on a television depends to the brand that you own, although that all can be found on the settings menu and some even have it enable by default. Also, not all models are being supported by DLNA that you must double check if it’s being 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 support. Using DLNA services as well, your router, tablet, TV and other devices must all be a DLNA certified to view files from a media server or from a computer.
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 your compatible Samsung LED or Samsung Smart TV. If you are going to use a screen mirroring from your Android device to your big TV screen, then the person who is using that tv will lose access to it as you need to occupy the TV that he or she may need to pause for a break and wait till you are done or they could use another TV for them to continue what they are doing. Whenver that you are going to use Samsung Screen mirroring, what you need to do is to have both devices to be connected on the same local network you have at home and sync the devices using your Allshare Cast to do a screen mirroring.
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 case to case basis only. Lets just say that you made an extended screen on your non Samsung computer or laptop to your LED TV (If the TV is compatible with PC output), you can do a Phone Screen Sharing which you can download from Samsung Apps, however, your phone must stay connected to the computer all the time. In this case your TV is not compatible with AllShare cast. With the Phone Sharing on your computer, you can simply drag it to move it on the TV screen then maximize to watch movies and pictures and any others from phone to TV, but through computer. If you do this kind of setup, the other person can continue doing what he/she is doing on the computer while you phone is playing movies and other on the other screen.
If you are unable to do the said setup above, then you option is to ask the person to pause or stop what he is watching on the TV or Laptop for you to do the mirroring and be able to pair then and enjoy. If you do not know also if your products are not DLNA compliant, then you can check it from this website: http://www.dlna.org/consumer-home/look-for-dlna/product-search for you to check if they are listed or not.
I cannot find the "More Settings" from the given steps, where can I find this?
This Setting can be found in the Settings as well (It may sound funny but true). If you have your phone in your hand, simply go to the main screen or Home screen then tap the Soft Menu Key on your phone that is located on the left side of the home button. When you tap it, it will be illuminated 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 be the "Settings". Tap that option and you will see there 4 tabs on your phone screen as: Connections, My Device, Accounts and More. The more that you are setting is the More Settings, tap that option and continue to the next steps for doing an AllShare Cast mirroring.
