Netgear’s PTV3000 has gotten a new firmware upgrade that will enable some nice functionality for those of you with Miracast-enabled devices. That bunch would include owners of the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, LG Optimus G (with Android 4.0.4 or later), Nexus 4 (with Android 4.2.1 or later), and various Sony Xperia models with Android 4.0.4 or later.
In case you don’t know what Miracast is, it’s a wireless display standard that’ll allow you to throw up a mirrored image of your device’s screen onto your television without the need to hook your phone up using MHL or HDMI. It’s a very nice piece of technology, so if you have one of these PTV3000 units then update it at your earliest convenience and give it a shot. If you don’t have a PTV3000 then now is as good a time as any to think about buying one — look into it for yourself here on Amazon.
