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.

   Uninstall AD BLOCK or any popup blockers is my advice.  This fixed my note 8 smart view connection immdeiately and as well I also recomend if you have a fire stick to unplug it for 30 seconds.

Thanks allot I have been working on this for 3 days lol was starting to miss my 8+ but now I realized it was actually my fault so anyone who has ad block or ad block for Samsung browser remove it and smart view will work

Mine did the same thing at first but I was persistent and kept trying to connect. After the tenth time or so it worked and my HDMI works as well

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.

Did you ever get yours working? Mine will not connect either. Trying to mirror my screen to a Samsung smart tv via smartview. My old note 5 still connects just fine to it.

Add me to the list. My Note8 will not stay connected to my Samsung TV. My old Note4 works fine. Note8 disconnects after about 20-30 seconds. Is there a fix?
