Screen Mirroring: iPhone or iPad to Philips TV

We bought a Philips 55PUS6554 Smart TV for our TV room just before Christmas. We’ve been really impressed with it overall and have found in very user-friendly.

I’ve been trying to find a way to mirror the screen from my iPhone or iPad with no success. With the current self-isolation situation we’ve been seeing family and friends on Houseparty and Zoom and it would be really nice for us to see it on the big screen rather than huddle around a phone.

I can’t find any feature on the TV which offers screen mirroring. I’ve installed the iMediaShare and TVCast apps to my phone but despite being on the same WiFi network they don’t seem to be able to find the TV.

We do have an Apple TV box on our other TV, but it seems an expensive solution to buy another. I also have a spare Amazon Fire stick: I’m not sure if I can use that in any way.

I’d really appreciate any suggestions or solutions from any other Philips TV owners who’ve found a solutions.

May be worth having a search for 'mirroring' in the Philips subforum for any threads or for your model.
I had searched on the Philips pages on the forum prior to posting. The only response previously was to use AirScreen, which doesn’t appear to be a functioning App at present. No solution on a general google search either...

Apple do not support miracast which is what the TV uses.

Only way to is get some cheap airplay mirroring HDMI device and hope that works but most of those will not work with DRM video, so Netflix, Amazon, HBO etc. whether the Zoom app falls under that too I don't know.

If you have an Android phone or tablet some of them do support miracast try seeing if those can mirror to the TV.

My mistake..I somehow overlooked you were wanting to use iPhone/iPad.

Could you not use the TV with the ATV or just relocate it temporarily to the TV room for the occasions you an to speak to family.

Alternatively, install Airscreen to Firestick
