Android, Android TV

Are you tired of watching videos on your small PC screen? Do you want to enjoy your favorite shows and movies on a bigger screen?

Well, you’re in luck! With an Android TV box, you can easily cast your PC screen to your television and have a more immersive viewing experience. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to cast your PC to an Android TV box step by step.

Step 1: Connect Your Android TV Box

The first thing you need to do is connect your Android TV box to your television using an HDMI cable. Make sure both devices are turned on and set the correct input source on your TV. Once connected, you should see the Android interface on your TV screen.

Step 2: Enable Screen Mirroring

To cast your PC screen to the Android TV box, you need to enable screen mirroring on both devices. On your Android TV box, go to the settings menu by clicking on the gear icon in the top-right corner of the home screen.

Scroll down and select “Display & Sound” or a similar option.

In the display settings, look for an option called “Screen Mirroring,” “Cast,” or “Wireless Display.” Click on it and enable screen mirroring.

Step 3: Prepare Your PC

On your PC, make sure you are connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Android TV box. Open the start menu and search for “Connect” or “Project.” Click on the “Connect” app from the search results.

Note:

If you can’t find the “Connect” app, it means that your PC does not support Miracast technology. In this case, you can use third-party applications like Chromecast or AnyDesk to cast your PC screen to the Android TV box.

Step 4: Connect Your PC to Android TV Box

In the “Connect” app on your PC, you should see a list of available devices. Look for your Android TV box and click on it to establish a connection.

If prompted, enter the PIN or verification code displayed on your TV screen. Once connected, you will see your PC screen mirrored on your television.

Step 5: Adjust Display Settings (Optional)

If the display on your TV doesn’t fit properly or appears distorted, you can adjust the display settings on your PC. Right-click on an empty area of your desktop and select “Display settings.

In the display settings, you can change the resolution or orientation to match your TV’s aspect ratio and size. Play around with these settings until you find the best fit for your TV screen.

Step 6: Cast Your Media

Now that your PC screen is successfully mirrored to the Android TV box, you can start casting media from various applications. Open any video streaming service or media player on your PC and play a video.

The video should now play on both your PC and the TV simultaneously. You can control playback using either device, and the audio will be played through the TV speakers.

Note:

If you want to cast specific tabs or applications from Google Chrome instead of mirroring your entire desktop, you can use the built-in casting feature in Chrome. Simply click on the three-dot menu in the top-right corner of Chrome, go to “Cast,” and select your Android TV box from the list of available devices.

In Conclusion

Casting your PC screen to an Android TV box is a great way to enjoy your favorite content on a larger screen. By following the steps outlined in this tutorial, you can easily set up screen mirroring and start casting media from your PC. So grab some popcorn, sit back, and enjoy the show!
