Solved!

Display desktop on non-smart TV

HP Recommended
HP slim desktop 290
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My objective is to display and hear whatever is on my computer -mainly ZOOM meetings and videos from various sources to my non-smart TV

I am finding confusing suggestions on this.

One was to connect via HDMI. I did that, got the blue opening Windows screen but without the desktop icons displayed. It also had no sound AND I lost the sound on the PC and had a DEVIL of a time getting it back (speaker icon had a red X next  to it- getting my sound back was so complicated I don't even remember how I did it!)

 

SO I would prefer it if I could use Chromecast or Roku, preferably the former. Can't find out if they will allow me to do that

I understand your concerns.

 

I have checked the specification of your computer.

 

Your product support  Wireless LAN 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (1x1) and Bluetooth 4.2 M.2

  • Interface: M.2

  • Transmission standards: 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac

It should support Miracast.

 

Have a nice day!!
