I have a Windows 8.1 desktop PC with an AMD Radeon HD 5700 graphics card and 14.12 AMD Catalyst Omega Software with drivers 14.501.1003-141120a-178000C.
With that PC I would like to use the Miracast/WiFi-Direct feature (that Windows 8.1 supports) but I am struggling to understand what is necessary to enable that feature.
According to other web pages one can run a tool named "dxdiag" to check various settings, when I do that I get
|Driver Model: WDDM 1.3|
|Miracast: Not Supported|
as part of the output. What can I do to enable Miracast support? Should my graphics card support it, should the AMD drivers support it? How would I enable it?
I understand that both the graphics card and drivers as well as the network card/wifi card need to support Miracast and it seems hard to find a network card for a desktop PC that support Miracast but this post is to find out what I need to do in terms of the graphics card and its drivers to enable Miracast support.
