Uh... am not totally up to date on the latest "smart" features *BUT* if this TV is like many of the Internet capable sets... the network capability of TVs are mainly to PULL, u can't PUSH to them, meaning you can initiate an activity on the TV and have it go out grab things, but u cannot, again PUSH or send stuff to it. Would be nice though, but good luck.

DLNA will play standard --already formed-- video and audio files from your laptop yes.


Hate to go back to your post#1 - U will have to make powerpoint output its whole presentation to a video file then DLNA will play it. It won't be interactive.

Yes that is what you must do.


If giving presentations all the time it would be easier to get some HDMI wireless PC desktop sender so it mirrors the desktop on the TV.

Hi Alx330,Thanks for your contribution.I think your suggested product will fulfill the purpose.However,i am unable to find this product in my country (Dubai,UAE).

But anyway,will surely want to give it a try if other solutions didn't work.

Any suggestions about Mezzmo? if anyone tried this software and had a success please share & advice.

Yes Bobb,Dubai is not on the US embargo list.We have number of Americans and Europeans settled here and enjoying their life.

I bought my phone from Ebay and they shipped it to my country without any problem.There was a small delay in receiving but rest of things went fine.

Anyway,i can order this product in case none of the other solution worked out.


Any suggestions are welcomed.

Sorry for not helping everyone sooner than now, but actually yes there is a simple way to send or push to the Samsung smart tv models although tech support from Intel and Samsung don't know it or at least advertise it. By now everyone using an Intel 2nd generation processor already have the ability to screen cast, push, or mirror their mobile laptop because Allshare, Samsung Link, Miracast, and what ever phrase is used to copy the screen imagine of a laptop to a monitor over network or direct wifi connection use the same platform which is WiDi. Intel WiDi is used like how Android uses Linux. What is required is a laptop with at least a gen 2 or later Intel Processor with WiDi enable and go to the Intel download support site and download the latest drivers and software for WiDi at downloadcenter dot
intel dot com /SearchResult.aspx?ProdId=3227&lang=eng (sorry forum won't let me post links yet, but that is the link for the downloads from Intel.)
once you have widi software for windows Version 4.2.29.0 and widi media share Version 1.1.0.0 installed open Intel (R) WiDi go to settings and in general settings and make sure the box is checked where it say "Scan for legacy wireless displays" save settings restart the program and launch screen mirroring and tell the WiDi software to scan for wireless displays at your Samsung smart Tv should pop right up for pairing hit connect and you should be good to go. ;D

Or nowadays you could just pick yourself up a Chromecast dongle for $35 and do it that way.

Chromecast should work as long as the Samsung Evolutionary TV line update boxes will work with the dongle. I mention this because the Samsung upgrades are having a lot compatibility issues with a lot of services and equipment, most mentioned being Netflix. One other thing to mention is you do not need the extra device in the first place since the Intel gen2 and up WiDi enabled processor is older than the Samsung Smart TV. Plus the WiDi method is completely free and simple, the only exception to this being the better choice is if your mobile laptop or other devices does not have Intel processor such as Apple, any laptop with an AMD processor, or your mobile device does not support WiDi. Then at that point you will unfortunately will have to purchase an adapter like Chromecast, which is one of the better ones that you can plug directly into the USB port of most smart TVs. However Samsung is not one of those companies that want to be open and friendly to third party devices and will try to tell you to get a Samsung mobile device and use their dongle that will become a bridge like adapter for this purpose, Personally in the scenario not having built in WiDi I would recommend Chromecast over the Samsung dongle simply for convenience of being able to transfer to other TVs where as the Samsung dongle wants to work best with Samsung TVs.
