Dell Venue 8 Pro Miracast fixed

Dell released an update for Intel chipset (12/2/2013), now Miracast works fully including duplicate mode that was limited to portrait and 800x600.

It is a little tricky though, you have to use the Intel graphics utility to change the resolution and orientation after connected to the projector as showing in the following photo:

I have then used this fantastic feature to watch online TV for hours and it worked flawlessly!


  1. where is your blog about clean Sohu Pinyin method? did you say V4.3 was cleanest one? Thanks!

    1. Yes, Sogou Pinyin 4.3 Final Version ( is still my only IME for Windows 7 and earlier. Windows 8's IME is very good, no longer need the Sogou.

      The later versions of Sogou suck. To prevent 4.3 from upgrading automatically, you need to replace the "ImeUtil.exe" and "PinyinUp.exe" with dummy ones.

    2. do you still have the link or I can download from the internet as long as it is 4.3? Thanks.

  3. This also works for a Toshiba Encore WT-8 tablet. Thanks for posting this.
