    EZCast media streaming with Win8 (Not 8.1)

    Has anybody tried to get the EZCast dongle to work ok on a W8 pc. I have looked at several YouTube videos re EZCast & looked at several websites. The only thing I can get to work properly on my TV is some items on my desktop. When you attain the mirror on the TV the resolution changes, (lowers), which means when you try to open any other app an error message reads: This app cannot open. The screen resolution is too low for this app to run. You cannot put the resolution back up to its normal lever, because it automatically lowers again. Also I cannot figure how to have the dongle Wi-Fi & the web Wi-Fi to both be on, so you can mirror websites as they claim.

    Have you downloaded the EZCast App for Windows 8? No ideas about the resolution problems as I don't have this device.

    The reviews from Amazon talk about how to set it up and most say the App is required and the set up looks fairly specific.

    There is also a firmware update according to the link below which also shows the set up for Windows 8. This device also isn't compatible with some TV's.
