One thought on “Sony Xperia Z/ZL – How to mirror screen to stream videos wirelessly via miracast to TV

  1. Unfortunately (and unlike other miracast implementations on Samsung devices or Nexus 4), as soon as you’ve established screen mirroring, normal wifi connection is dropped on the Xperia Z .

    So you will not be able to watch on your TV applications which doesn’t require internet access (forget youtube, web browsing, reading emails and RSS feeds)

    Not really useful.
