Does anyone use the Screen Mirroring function to connect to another device like a tablet and have if so, have you noticed any change in the function of Screen Mirroring with the latest firmware (1122)? The reason I ask is unfortunately I've got two variables that have changed at the same time. I bought a Kindle Fire HDX tablet (7") and used it for a couple of weeks. I really liked the wireless Screen Mirroring function for displaying a movie or whatever you have on the tablet on the TV. This function worked great but I was using the previous firmware version on the TV. and I only had the tablet for a few weeks before I ended up sending it back due to some issues with it. I got another Kindle Fire HDX (8.9" version this time) and decided to see if I like this one any better. The problem I'm having is that I'm trying out a movie with the Screen Mirroring function and it keeps cutting out on the TV. The function stops working (the movie stops) and a message comes up that I should check the connections on my device. From my understanding this Screen Mirroring function uses a direct wi-fi connection from the device (Kindle Fire Tablet in my case) to the TV and doesn't go through the wi-fi network. Knowing that I can eliminate the wi-fi network as the problem. Now, I'm trying to determine if the problem is the TV dropping the connection or the tablet. I'm inclined to think it's the TV because when it happens the movie stops showing on the TV and keeps playing on the tablet. Also, it's the TV that says that the Screen Mirroring function has stopped not the Tablet. When I look at the tablet, the movie is still showing and the icon showing the Screen Mirroring function is still on the tablet's screen. I can restart the function and it starts right back up but it's a hassle to keep doing it and it shouldn't be stopping every so often like this. Unfortunately the TV was just upgraded to firmware (1122) and I just got the new Tablet) so I can't easily blame one over the other. However, it would seem since the TV seems to be losing the Mirroring connection that IT is dropping it's side. I was wondering if any one else is having similar problems with firmware (1122)?
Additionally, I doubt it but is there anyway to go revert back to a previous firmware version (even if done manually with the USB method)? Thanks.
How long does it take for it to cut out? I've used the mirroring but not for long periods. Maybe the radio is heating up too much on one or both of the devices? That can cause a network malfunction. Even though it's not using the "network", it's still a network connection. Let me know. I'm playing a movie now to see if anything happens within a few minutes while I have a few to spare.
