    Screen Mirror w/ 8.1 Desktop to TV with Xbox or Roku 3?


    I want to be able to screen mirror from my W.81 desktop wired to my TV thru Xbox 360 and Roku 3 without having to buy yet another device (Miracast) to do so. I know this can be done via Devices/Play/Xbox/IE App but the problem is that most content won't play properly with the IE App-IE browser yes but not the App for some reason. This same content will play on Chrome but I can't screen mirror with Xbox with Chrome. I really want to be able to do this without spending more money. Any solutions?

    There are Private Channels out there for the Roku, that will do this. Problem is that it will be as slow as the ChromeCast. You would be best off using a Wireless HDMI setup, that uses a USB adapter to stream to the hdmi receiver that plugs into the tv.

    How would a wireless set up be faster than a wired one? How would Private Channels work for this? The source I want isn't listed. I don't want to have to buy even more gear.
