Cast to TV

Hi all,

I have just received my new XA1, I used to have a Z1 compact. On my Z1 I could easily cast videos, photo's etc to my Samsung Smart TV. I have nevr needed a chromecast dongle to do this.

 

On my XA1 I can screemn mirror to my TV but I am unable to cast? On my Z1, if i tapped on a photo the cast icon button would show and I would tap it to select my TV. I don't get this icon my XA1.

 

I phoned xperia support and went through settings> device connection> cast  but all it would say is 'no nearby devices found'.

Can anyone throw any light on what I need to do please.

 

Many thanks

Downloaded Allcast and within minutes I'm now casting to my TV.
