Casting problem. to smart tv. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it doesnt,...
My Philips 32PFS6401/12
A few times i managed to cast from my Android and Apple device, directly to this smart tv. When pressing the casting button it shows all the devices. Also my tv. In 2% of all cases, i press on the tv, and it starts casting directly to the tv WITHOUT chromecast.
But in 98% of all cases, i select the tv, but nothing happens. It keeps trying to connect, but the CASTING LOGO never appears
on the tv. But the fact it worked for only 2% of all hits, it means the tv can actually recieve my streams from any device, without a Chromecast. It was receiving my movies from
Pop corn Time
So my question is.
How is it possible that i managed to cast directly to this tv only 3 times in 6 months. But when turning the tv OFF and ON, can result in this problem. My Android tablat and Apple device apps, actually can FIND the smart tv when pressing the CAST BUTTON, but pressing it wont result in a Casting logo on my screen and a sucesfull stream. But sometimes it works.
It is working or it is not. Its simple. Simething should work or it never works. Its strange that it works sometimes, but most of the time it doesnt.
When im lucky, it jump to the casting screen and i can cast the whole time from any app. But turning the tv OFF and ON, can result in this problem again. This moment nothing happens when i hit the cast button. Three days ago, it worked. That is bothering me.
