    Hello Everyone I have just purchased a X9500 Sony TV. It replaced a Samsung TV. On my Windows 10 PC if I wanted to play a video clip to my Samsung I would right click the video file - choose cast to device - the TV appears in list and I click on the TV and it asked for permission - i clicked yes on TV and away it went. With the Sony the TV appears in the list but when I click on it all I get is Unexpected Device Error. I have turned on Renderer in Network settings. Under Device Renderer Access my PC's mac address show up and it says access is on but still get Unexpected device error. It is an mp4 92mb in size. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get this working please

    Thanks
    Gary

    Nope, casting is painfully bad and I have avoided it it's whole life. Sorry!

    Thanks for your help - Never had any issues with Samsung TV's just Sony - Guess I'll see how helpful Sony support is. Thanks again
