I have no problem with my nexus 7 have you tried swiping down the top right corner of tablet you get a shortcut menu with the screen cast icon to connect to your w9. Or go to settings device then display then cast screen then it should have wireless display and the w9 listed.

Yep. I've gone through all the steps and it attempts to connect, but then doesn't. I was able to connect to a Samsung BD player at my girlfriend's house with not problem. I'm having the same issue with my HTC One, so it's not specific to my tablet.

Question for you guys. Do you guys have your light sensor turned off on your W9? And if you do why? And what benifit does it provide by having it off? I have mine on to save energy but if it really dont make a difference then I will turn it off. Thanks guys.

Try going into settings on you w9 network wi-Fi direct turn on then go into Wi-Fi direct settings press options then manual to register device. I think I had to do this before I could connect my nexus 7

I have it off. For me this way Sony provides much better contrast and it is much more suitable for day viewing. I tried it for some time with On and backclight at max but I found it much better if Light Sensor function is all together off all the time and backlight set manually to 6.

best, d.

Thanks. I have to play with it some more. I was able to stream music/video to it via DLNA, but the screen mirroring still wasn't working. Argg. It really shouldn't be this difficult.

I have mine off. That one change is what took me from disappointed in the set to very happy with it when compared to the HX850 it replaced.

I've had mine off from day one and have no reason to turn it on. The wife watches a lot of cable TV during the day and I watch daytime sports on the weekend. We get a lot of indirect sunlight in the den and the last thing I need is reduced contrast and brightness with the Eco setting on.

I have alot of sunlight in the room where W9 sits turnbowm. We watch some programs during the day and more at night. So should the light senor be turned off completely? Im on the fence here!

I have a mine in a room with decent light control and I still can't imagine leaving it on. The difference was not subtle to me. All the pop and contrast that I love about the set was just not there with the light sensor on.

I turned off the light sensor and what a difference in PQ! It was excellent before but now its even better. Thanks to everyone for telling me to turn it off.
