Firmware Update - Version 1.6

Wireless Audio/Video Receiver Firmware Update
This firmware update provides enhanced compatibility with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 devices. In addition, this update provides auto-pairing functionality. This means that the use of the pairing button is no longer required when connecting a new device to the Wireless Audio/Video Receiver.

Updating the Firmware of the Wireless Audio/Video Receiver

Note:We recommend that a laptop or desktop computer is used when performing the firmware update. The computer must support Wi-Fi communication, but support for Miracastâ„¢ technology by the computer is not required.
1. Download Version 1.6 Firmware zip file, extract the zip file and save it in an accessible folder on a laptop or desktop computer.
2. Ensure that the Wireless Audio/Video Receiver is receiving power and is connected to the display with an HDMI cable, then press and hold the Pair/Reset button for 5-7 seconds and release. The light on the Wireless Audio/Video Receiver will begin flashing red.
3. Locate the Wireless Audio/Video Receiver as a wireless network connection through the computer. This is the same process as finding a Wi-Fi access point for Internet access.
4. Connect to SSID of the Wireless Audio/Video Receiver and open a Web Browser.
5. Enter the following into the address bar of the browser: http://192.168.8.1/ and a Configuration Page will open.
6. In the section titled Upgrade Image File (sbin format) click on the Browse button, locate and select the file which was downloaded in step 1, and then click on the Upload File button. Ensure that the .sbin file has been extracted from the zip file that was downloaded in step 1 before completing this step.
7. The firmware will begin uploading to the receiver. After a short period of time, approximately one minute, a message will be displayed indicating that the update is complete and then the Wireless Audio/Video Receiver will reset automatically.
8. Once the adapter is fully booted, you will see a Ready for connnection message on the display.
9. Hold the Mode/Reset button for 5-9 seconds and release.
10. Connect to SSID of the Wireless Audio/Video Receiver again and open a Web Browser to the http://192.168.8.1

12. Select WiDi and P2P mode and click Update & Reboot.
13. The Miracast unit will begin to update the change and automatically reboot.
PLEASE NOTE: It is very important that the power is not interrupted during this process and until the update has fully completed. If the power is interrupted during the firmware update, the Wireless Audio/Video Receiver may become unusable.

Please Note:
An active video signal is required for the Wireless Audio/Video Receiver to maintain a connection. For example, video is being shown through the Wireless Audio/Video Receiver and it is connected to the HDMI 1 input of a HDTV. If the input of the HDTV is switched to HDMI 2 to display a different device, then switched back to HDMI 1 to display video through the Wireless Audio/Video Receiver, a new wireless connection must be established. This product is not designed to act as a true cable replacement. Some pixilation and/or periodic signal dropouts may occur and are not uncommon with wireless technology.

For large deployments:
Actual performance may extend further than 30 feet and may penetrate through walls. It is suggested that this product be tested prior to installation, especially in large scale deployments in a single location such as a school or office environment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! Connected to projector with HDMI, installed wifi display helper on a Nexus 7 from the play store, had it connected in seconds. Full screen mirroring from the device to the projector with sound. With the external keyboard makes using the Nexus really nice on a big screen. Also connected a Dell XPS 14. Had to purchase a Dell Intel wireless nic and ditch the Killer brand nic. Removed the intel nic video driver in the device management, left the nvidia alone, had windows update install the intel video, downloaded widi updater from Intel support site, ran it, it updated a couple programs and installed a widi program that opens and you see the adapter you purchases and have connected to your projector, type in a password it gives you and your connected. I was not able to use an HDMI to VGA adapter inline with this adapter so I could make this work on an older projector that didnt' have HDMI but I am still trying other things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding on Surface Pro! Piloting these to use in a school setting. The video quality from a surface pro is amazing. Noticeably better then Chromecast, Epson Wireless, Apple TV Etc. Testing using a Surface Pro. I was unable to get it to work with a Asus Vivotab but did not spend too much time troubleshooting (we're ditching all of our Vivotabs).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WiDi/Miracast This unit and it's two sister units will replace our overhead projectors in conference rooms. The ability for any user to cast to the 70" screens sans wires makes the company better and presentations better. The ROI for this is amazing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Review of Miracast Very difficult to use. Spent a great deal of time setting it up and still did not work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad connectivity The concept of this Bluetooth device is exactly what I needed, however it does not function with the consistency I need for it to be adequately functional. The problem is in the connection which continuously drops out forcing a complete reconnection process each time I try to use it. If I try to stream any presentation or video from any computer to the display TV, the C2G drops the connection every 10 minutes, making it difficult to follow a complete video. Very disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sometimes works. My laptop "sees" it but cant connect to it.?? Android phone connects but sometimes audio/video is choppy sometimes OK. devices are 20 feet or less apart. Wish I would have just got a 20 ft HDMI cable.

Question about the miracast wireless adapter. This will only transmit the video quality of the original source correct? In other words does it up convert say 720p to 1080p? Thank you

Asked by: TC
Miracast will not upconvert. The Miracast will only provide the same resolution that the source outputs.

What's the functional difference between items 29358 and 29368?

There is no functional difference with 29648 and 29358. Both parts come with the Miracast unit and a power cable to plug into a USB port for power. Part 29648 comes with an additional HDMI cable and a USB to AC adapter.

I am running the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 motherboard which doesn't have Bluetooth capability. What I want is to stream from my PC to my Samsung Smart TV that does have Miracast incorporated into it. Will your product allow me to do this?

Asked by: BuzzMasterian
If you have an HDMI output on the video card, you could use our part 29329. It does wireless HDMI from a TX and RX unit up to 100ft. We do not have just a TX unit that will allow you to connect the PC directly to the Miracast on the TV.

Asked by: Greenware
