Good evening,

after the update to version 15785000 the workaround to setup the default mode to "ezmirror + timer" is missing in the device management.
Can you tell us how we can activate the timer during the boot now?

Thanks!

Dear Heiko,

Sorry for the inconvenience, we have removed Miracast mode when bootup. Please get into EZCast Pro app and then click "EZMirror" to do Miracast.
Thanks for your understanding.

That are bad news :-(

If I would use the Pro-Stick at home, I had no problem with the detachment of the timer-function.
But we use it at our school in a lot of classrooms. About 800 hundred students know the process with the timer.
We can´t expect and we have less time that all people have to use the ezcast app to connect their tablets with the
beamers. This is very frustrating.

We appreciating your support and the development of enhancements was an important purchasereason for us.
Can you tell us something about your arguments?
Please reverse your decision and implement the timer-function at boot again.


Best regards

Heiko

Why remove this function?
Why not let users choose according to their needs?
How to restore the old firmware?

Thanks!

I have the same question as the user before: why is this possibility to select the Default mode removed?

Right now it takes so many step to use EZMirror:
  • Turn on Beamer and Tablet
  • Start EZCastPro
  • Connect to the Dongle WLAN
  • Choose EZMirror On (not working every time)
  • Deconnect the Dongle WLAN and reconnect to local WLAN
  • Start Mirroring on mobil device.


My "old" dongle has the Default Mode Mirroring and I need to ...
  • Turn on Beamer and Tablet
  • Wait some seconds till the Dongle is ready to mirror
  • Start Mirroring on mobil device.

And the iOS-User just have to wait 2 Minutes till the dongle changes to the other mode.

That is (was) so simple!!

Hello,

what are the latest news to our problem.

We need a solution for the problem.
Are you shure that Apple-User are using EZCast. I believe that they are using Apple-TV.

Your dongle is perfect for Android and Windows with a "dumb" beamer, but horrible to use at this time.
Birgit described it perfect.

Please enable the old possibility with the timer!!!!

Thanks
Heiko

Hi support sent me a mail that its possible to boot in miracast mode in the newest firmware,
but its not :((!

I am trying out your system, but this is the key feature to equip every single beamer in our school with your ezcast pro stick!
I need to make the decision end of November. If it is possible to use miracast right from the beginning than i will buy your product
(we are talking about 60 Beamer). But if not, i will choose microsofts wireless display v2 oder the screenbeam mini2 dongle. Sorry!

Please get tha feature back - as soon as possible!!!
