Found 28th Mar 2014
I got the other Measy dongle A2W and works quite well. This has a switch for always on dnla or miracast which i think is preferable IMO. Bought a few things from Futeko - good company to deal with.

Miracast + DLNA dongle. Stream and mirror apps, games, video, music wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet, or PC to your HDMI TV. Easy operation with physical switch for toggle between Miracast / DLNA mode. Without packaging.

is this ACTUAL Miracast, as in, standards compliant, or one of the many that say it's Miracast, then it turns out you need a bespoke app to work with it...?

I think its the real deal. I use the other measy one with an android phone and tablet, screen mirroring without any issues. Is that what you mean?

Did you have to install an app to do it, or did it work 'out of the box' on your phone?

Just looked at the site, and if they are right, it does look like the real thing, as you say...
If so, heat added, and very tempted...

The one I have (A2W) uses EZcast app which is OK. I think this is a physical switch so its always on one protocol or the other.

Video

How it works on different device, (Testing device in the video : iphone 5 ;iOS7)

1. Apple products

- Use apps "EZcast" to stream media files stored in your phone to your TV (Connect your phone to wifi "Ezcast-xxxx")

- Use DLNA apps (such as youtube and flips) to stream online contents (content the dongle and your phone to the same network)

2. Android device

- Use apps "EZcast" to stream media files stored in your phone to your TV (Connect your phone to wifi "Ezcast-xxxx")

- use the web browser on "EZcast" to enjoy internet

- Wi-Fi Direct (Ezmirror) can project /mirror your Android screen onto your TV through dongle (but not all adevice support Wi-Fi direct,, for example, Samsung products)

3. Laptop (with wifi)

- It project your computers screen directly onto your TV through the dongle


Main Function:

"1. EZAir:

The EZAir function of A2W is similar with the Airplay function of Apple, you could cast movies, photos, music from you iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to HDTV with big screen entirely.
"
"2. EZCast

The EZCast function of A2W, allows streaming media from computer or other equipments being cast by wifi onto TV. Includes streaming media like Music, Photos, TXT etc.. Users also could mirror online contents on Chrome to HDTV, more from Youtube, Netflex, Youku, Sohu, etc.."

"3. Miracast

The Miracast function of A2W, allows users mirrored the whole interface of mobile Phone, Tablet or Laptop onto HDTV with big screen. When playing 3D MSG(Motion Sensing Game), you could use the tablet as the game control, and enjoy it with the big TV screen."

Supported Operation System
1. Android OS
2. IOS
3. MAC OS
4. WINDOWS XP, /7/8/8.1

better to have than not

Question, If you were watching video from your phone to your tv via this dongle would it also play the sound?

I've got the A2W for use with my Windows tablet, and while it does just work with windows, you do have to use the EZ cast (available for windows/Mac/iOS/android) to configure the A2W to your WiFi.

Works pretty well for 'projecting' to a big screen though. Good enough for work purposes, the guys at futeko state that it's not really up to gaming use.

I would agree there is a lag so gaming not really an option

I really have no idea at all why I have just purchased this item!!

Only android 4.2 or higher supports mirror cast, lower ones can do photos videos etc thru the ezcast app, and ofc windows can use the app to do a screen mirror, not tried with ios

will this work on any tv with HDMI socket?

yes

I believe so, but it isn't powered through HDMI. It will need to be powered through a phone charger (possibly through the USB port on your TV, but no promises).

I think I want one of these....but just wondering will this ebay offering at £12,69 do the same job ebay link

Would sky go work with this?

In some aspects its similar to a Chromecast then

sky blocks miracast mirroring. If they allowed it them their multi room business model would shut down over night.

i had a bad experience with these, when it went wrong this guy wasn't interested even within warranty period. at this price not a prob but thought you guys should know.

Thank op bought one

bad experience, avoid it, get stuck and lag all the time.

Thats a shame, I was considering one of these, but now not so sure

I just got mine delivered today. Very disappointed. Does not broadcast a WiFi signal so none of my android or apple devices can connect.

Annoyed I have to pay postage to return it.

good luck returning it

OK so I got this, downloaded ezcast but they won't talk to each other? Am I doing something silly? As I live in a village I have an unsecured connection on wifi if this helps. My android phone is Motorolo moto. Many thanks in advance.

The dongle has a bulit in wifi bridge, initially it will want to join the home wifi setup but then you tell the phone to connect to the dongle not the home wifi router

Price now £18.99

If you have got this version you don't use the EZcast app. You switch the mode with the physical switch on the dongle.

Unless I'm really dumb then this dongle is doing nothing for me at all. I've put it in DLNA and got me phone connected to wifi through the vcast dongle. Now how do I stream to the tv from my phone?

Received mine. with loads of trial and error finally got it working on DLNA. cant get it to work with miracast for some reason. for the people who are struggling to set it up this is what I did

Connect the dongle to TV with usb power /external supply whatever you have

Now go to your mobile phone wifi settings and connect to the Measy Dongle SSID and not your home wifi.dongle SSID is visible on TV and it will also show you the IP address of the dongle

On your mobile phone web browser /google search and type 192.168.1.49

once you have connected to that IP address you will see few icons with different setting on the page.

Select touch icon to make dongle connect to WiFi AP and click on SCAN. after a while you will see your home broadband SSID. click on that and it will ask you the password fr your wifi enter it and it is now part of your home network.

Now goto play store and download PlayTo. I will suggest you to get PlayTo lite first to test out. Once installed, run it. On the right top you will see a ply symbol and if you click on it you will see your vcast dongle in it. select it and add it to your device

Now you can start playing with the app to play the video on your tv using the PlayTo.

Hope this helps
