Is anyone else having trouble with Miracast? I cannot get it to work for the life of me, nor can I get my VidOn Box to see the files in my Homegroup, so long story short, I have to have a portable drive plugged into my V Box at all times to watch movies/play games.
 
When I run Miracast, my PC and the VidOn Box see each other, but will not connect. And when I make my Homegroup in Windows available to my VidOn Box, the V Box only sees the files in the Homegroup and not the actual content...
 
It is driving me nuts! But all problems have solutions, so... do you guys have any solutions?

Which 'Hardware SDK' version, 'VidOn Media Center' version and 'VidOn XBMC' version do you have installed on your VidOn.me device?
