If you have any of those models, please check if it has one of the streaming receivers to see if it's compatible to cast to TV.

This app does not modify, download, or transcode the video sources. It only sends the original source to your streaming receivers. The app does not hosts any content. Therefore the compatibility and availability of the videos are dependent on the source websites themselves.

-This app only casts from websites that uses public format. Proprietary video formats such as Amazon Prime Video, Direct TV, Netflix, etc...will NOT cast to TV.

Troubleshooting:

-Ensure your WIFI connection is stable and on the same network. Casting to TV requires a good internet connection.

-Most connection problems can be resolved by restarting the streaming receiver and phone/tablet.

-Open the url in the System Browser to ensure the source and site is working properly there.

-Flash websites are not supported by streaming device manufacturers.

-If a video is not playing or a disconnection occurs, it could be several reasons:

1. The ISP(Internet Service Provider)

2. The source website itself

3. Insufficient WIFI signal strength
