Radeon R9 270 and wireless screen connection stopped working after driver update.

I have a desktop Dell XPS 8700 with an AMD Radeon R9 270. Windows 10 1709 x64. Display devices resolution 1920x1080.

The Radeon Crimson software installed was WHQL 17.7 with driver 22.19.172.769 dated 6/27/2017.

With that driver I can connect to a wireless display (Samsung MU6290) and use it as an extended display or a duplicate display with no problem.

With update to Radeon software adrenalin edition 17.12.2  Dec 19 and driver 23.20.15007.1005 the wireless display connection does not work.

When I connect you can see that it tries connecting for a few seconds and a message appears on the wireless screen, but then drops and never completes the connection.

Note that the option to connect to wireless display was added when I installed WHQL 17.11.1, but it could not complete the connection to the wireless display with the same behavior as I see with 17.12.1 or 17.12.2, tries for a few seconds and then drops.

If I revert back the Radeon software to 17.7 with driver 22.19.172.769  the wireless display completes the connection and  works.

The question is which of the latest Radeon software and drivers support the wireless display with the Radeon R9 270 ?

Is the adrenalin edition 17.12.2  supposed to work with a wireless display ?

Keep in mind that I use the same wireless display with other PC's and laptops and it works fine, it fails only on my Desktop Dell XPS 8700..

Re: Radeon R9 270 and wireless screen connection stopped working after driver update.

On 11/18/2018 tried another update from driver 22.19.172.769 dated 6/27/2017 to most recent driver 25.20.14011.1003 dated 11/7/2018 and it broke my Miracast again, it fails to connect to Samsung 6 Series 40 Smart TV.

Reverted back to the original driver 22.19.172.769 and Miracast worked fine again.

Why are the newest drivers failing the connection to a wireless display ? I reported this problem a year ago, but still the newest drivers keep failing. I'm now running Win10 x64 version 1809 Build 17763.134.

I guess I have to stick to the original driver and stop trying to update it.

Any fix available for this bug ? So much for progress !

Re: Radeon R9 270 and wireless screen connection stopped working after driver update.

I have the same problem with m Dell XPS 8700, only my driver version is 25.20.14011.10001, and this is the first time I've tried to use the feature.

Windows 10 say that it's connecting. My Samsung smarttv displays a message that it's connecting. The Windows monitor goes to black briefly and then a message is sometimes displayed on the PC, Failed to connect and the TV stops displaying the connected message.

The error message in the Event Log is:

- <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">

- <System>

<Provider Name="Bonjour Service" />

<EventID Qualifiers="0">100</EventID>

- <EventData>

<Data>mDNSCoreReceiveResponse: Unexpected conflict discarding 14 139.1.168.192.in-addr.arpa. PTR OARPA1.local.</Data>

</EventData>

</Event>

Bonjour is a device discovery service, but the two devices are clearly discovering each other, as Windows displays the TV, and the TV displays a message naming my computer that's connecting to it.

Re: Radeon R9 270 and wireless screen connection stopped working after driver update.

Find the driver 22.19.172.769 dated 6/27/2017 and it will work, it works on my XPS 8700.

Miracast will fail with any newer driver from AMD.

You can duplicate the screen and that may be enough for some applications, but if you try to play a movie it may still have some issues.

The only computer I have that fully supports Miracast is my new Lenovo Laptop Yoga 920 with Intel Graphics UHD 620 and Intel ProSet Wi-Fi adapter 9260.

The driver above can be found using windows update, you may want to uninstall the other driver using amdcleanuputility.exe that you can download from AMD.

After you run amdcleanuputility.exe to remove the current AMD software and driver restart the system and then go to windows update (Check for updates) and it will install the 2 drivers below, one is for the display adapter and the other is for the HD audio driver.

After that, right click on the screen and go to display settings -->  connect to wireless display ---> select the Samsung TV.

You may have to authorize the connection when it asks on the Samsung TV.

It should connect and either extend or duplicate your PC screen depending on how you choose the setup...
