  1. I just solved this issue on my HF8. You can unfortunately connect your laptop and TV in many ways that doesn’t do screen sharing. Look at the apps on your tv, there will be one called Screen Sharing and you need to open it. On your laptop you need to go to your display options and scroll down to the wireless display heading, below that is the option to search for devices. Your tv should pop up on the new search window that opens when you search for a wireless display. Just select it to connect. I believe it took 2 attempts for my connection to work, I get some screen pulses and it’s a second or two behind the laptop display, haven’t played with options yet.

    I had Anyview Stream enabled in the network settings on the TV. The connection is WiFi based not bluetooth based so that causes loads of false leads that do produce a connection but not the one you’re looking for. You might want to remove the TV as a recognized device in the bluetooth options area on your laptop, though it should be fine for it to be recognized as a media server over bluetooth we’re just considering it being recognized as a display being problematic. Best of luck.
