I have been trying to find a way to connect my Pop!_OS to my TV using Miracast for quite some time. Tried to set up Miracast for straight 2 days but was unable to get it to work. I'm kind of frustrated now. Is there any other way that I can connect my laptop to my TV using Miracast?

  • Please advise a) which WiFi channel you are using by running nm-tool && iwlist frequency, b) the model of your TV, and c) the model number of your laptop from the serial number sticker beneath, so we can see if your WiFi adapter in the laptop one of the two supported (Intel 7260-family or Atheros ath9k) github.com/intel/wds/blob/master/README.md .

  • @K7AAY I have added the serial number and the result of iwlist frequency but the nm-tool is not working. – Muhammad Ali Khan Jul 24 at 6:18
  • Sorry, old advice used. Use sudo iwlist wlan0 scan | grep Frequency | sort | uniq -c | sort -n instead. Also need the model number off the serial number plate as asked above.

Miracast has been criticized for incomplete implementation in the Pop! OS forum at Reddit. The one implementation which worked was Miraclecast which is a non-trivial task to configure, but you can also review Wireless Display Software for Linux.
