I mirror my phone alot to my samsung TV. Now when I mirror it i only see a blown up portion on my wallpaper, the home and back button and it stays on that screen no matter what I do on my phone. Did something change that I am not aware of? Is there a fix for this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
what phone do you screen mirror on your TV?
If you are using a samsung phone, from smart view you can setup which diplay will be following the screen size either the phone get the full screen or the TV gets the full screen
now, for the navigation bar, you have an option to hide it on samsung devices like a S10 series with android 9. nut for other android phone it is by DEFAULT that the navigation bar will show on your TV like the other phone I HAVE at house not samsung phone.
Yes, the new update took away my ability to mirror and DeX. Spent 4 days, 3 resets and 13 discussion with Samsung only to finally figure out It is Smart View that replaced it.
Hdmi cord no longer works. Smart View works on wifi that I don't have. My hotspot was my wifi. Phone can not be reversed so I'm told. Way to go
DeX I just used my mobile data. Worked great. More to say about this but I am really really Peed off to go on. But once I get either a new phone without Smart View or wifi I ll be back. Good luck.
I see how you connect,
If you are using a DEX connector for HDMI, you dont need the smartview
the screen resolution will be adjusted depending on the dispaly of the phone screen, i will prefer to adnjust the screen display on the phone, (HD, FHD) depending on what the screen resolution support by your samsung TV
Now from SAMSUNG TV, you have a option there to scale it to full screen or normal which will gave you black edges on the screen
Most of the latest samsung TV have a upscalling option, means it will automatically adjust and fits to the screen even you are only transmitting 420i/p resolution it will upscale it to 1080P or FHD depends on your TV
Ok so none of the replies here address the question asked. Try to stay on topic cause I have this wallpaper on my TV issue as well. I get sound but when I use smart view or screencast all that shows on the screen is my wallpaper.
By the way I'm using the S20 Ultra
Can we get Samsung tech support in on this? It's very frustrating.
I had the same problem and this tip worked for me! Thank you so much!
P.S .: Now that everything is resolved, I am very curious to know how this "forced desktop on secondary devices" works
The Screen Mirroring feature has been moved from the Smart View or SmartThings app. This feature can now be found on compatible models under the Quick Connect feature. Steps and how to use this feature can be found here: https://techwelkin.com/quick-connect-samsung
