I just recently received my Note 8 from Verizon.
I truly love this phone except for the fact that I can't get Smart View to work. I have tried it with 2 Samsung TV's, an Amazon Fire TV, a Google Chromecast, and even a USB C to HDMI adapter. Smart View never connects and never recognized the USB adapter.
Is their a bug in the software for the phone? It is showing as fully up to date.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have the same problem.with mine..
Everything was working fine..until Samsung update require...so I did....the phone been **bleep** ever since..
Samsung went backwards...in my theory...
My Note 8 doesnt screen cast anymore either since the Oreo update. It connects and casts for literally 2 seconds and then drops the connection and says "Smart View has stopped working."
I've tried everything in this thread, no luck.
I believe it is definitely a bug in an Android update.
I had a Note 8 which connected fine to my TV with a Microsoft Miracast dongle until a system update after which it would not connect at all. I broke that phone and got another Note 8 and the exact same thing occurred, it connected fine until a system update and now will not connect at all.
I had same problem just fixed it! Hope it works for you. Press on the smart view , but hold on to it , it takes you to a screen that tells you, about smart view, press on that, once you get there you will have a choice to [force stop], press on that. You can now exit and try your smart view now. That should do it.
