    Play To - self disconnects


    I get this on DP and now on CP. When i Play To a movie to my TV remotely, after a period of time it disconnects.

    Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

    I am also having this problem on my Surface RT. Ive found keeping the device awake stops it disconnecting, but this keeps the screen on and hence uses a lot of battery power. Ive messed with a lot of the power settings but nothing seems to stop this behaviour.

    I can't rmember ever not using my laptop during streeming to TV. I surf the net regularly.

    As for battery power, don't you use power?

    Ah sounds like our problems are completely unrelated. Yes I can plug it in but that's not a option if Im at someone elses house.
