    Hi is it possible to switch off my phone screen while mirroring it to my tv? If I am streaming a movie from my phone to my tv my phone screen is constantly on, gets hot and drains the battery, if I press the power button it goes off on my tv as well as my phone, can I stop this from happening so I am mirroring the phone with the screen off?

    Thanks

    No guarantees from me as I have no use for this but......

    Save Battery by Mirroring Your Android Screen to Chromecast with the Display Off « Cord Cutters

    It seems the (a - there may be others out there) app is the only way to do this unless the function is introduced into the OS........
