We explain about two methods, Miracast and DLNA technology, of connecting Huawei phone to TV or Smart TV, and explain about how to play the screen of your Huawei Mate 10 mobile on Smart TV with Miracast or on cable TV, Chrome Cast or Fire TV Stick Basic Edition.
Today we have many devices from which we can use the Internet, from popular Smartphones to lots of devices that we use at home. One of the most prominent is charging smart TV or Smart TV.
These televisions have the ability to connect with our mobile phones or tablets in order to share files as images or videos. The best-known technologies to do it are Miracast and DLNA.
What is Miracast?
This technology works in a very similar way to the well-known HDMI cable but wirelessly between Smartphone and Smart TV. It works in such a way that when the screen is turned off on our mobile we will also stop watching the content on the TV. To use this technology, two requirements must be met:
- That our phone is compatible: This is verifiable if the “Screen display” or “Duplicate screen” option appears in the screen settings of the phone.
- That our TV is compatible.
In case one of these two conditions is not met, it will be necessary to use adapters designed for this purpose.
What is DLNA?
The DLNA stands for Digital Living Network Alliance. It differs from Miracast in that this technology does not allow us to reproduce the screen of our mobile phone on the TV but to reproduce photos or videos in it. In this case, it is also necessary to establish a connection between Smartphone and Smart TV.
Other information to keep in mind,
- If you need to play the smartphone screen on your DLNA TV, it is not right for you.
- Chromecast will allow you to watch Internet content on your TV while using your smartphone. It can also be used to use the Internet on your TV that is not Smart TV.
- For specific uses, try an HDMI connector.
- If it is not a specific use and it is important that smartphone and Smart TV connect, we recommend checking the technology that both devices support before buying them.
