How to Display Image from Xiaomi Phone to TV
Watching videos and photos on a smartphone is not as convenient as on a large TV. Therefore, from time to time, many users have a question, how can you transfer information from a phone to a TV device? Of course, you can suggest that you first throw everything on a USB flash drive, and then connect it to the TV. But all this is long, inconvenient and not always possible.

Maybe not today or tomorrow, but someday you will go on a business trip or visit, and there you can easily “make friends” two devices for broadcasting documents, images and other data.
Via Wi-Fi Direct
Using wireless technologies, you can connect your Xiaomi smartphone to your TV. For example, using Wi-Fi Direct. True, everything will work out only if you have Smart TV. The very same connection procedure through this channel is simple:
- First of all, we connect both the phone and the TV to the same Wi-Fi network.
- Go to “Settings” on your Xiaomi smartphone.
- Go to the “Wi-Fi” section.
- We go down the menu and tap on the item “Advanced (additional) settings”.
- We are looking for the “Wi-Fi Direct” option. Click on her.
- In the window that appears, the process of searching for devices with which pairing is possible will begin. We need our TV to be displayed here. As soon as the smartphone finds it, we try to connect.
- Usually the TV model is prescribed. So we tap on it. Then we press the completion of the connection process.
- We open the “Gallery”, “YouTube” on the Xiaomi smartphone or launch the movie through the video player. We see an icon on top, which tells us about a successful connection to TV.
- Enjoy the big screen.
Do you want to display the image on the TV from your smartphone without pulling wires? Then you can use the Miracast function.
A prerequisite is a modern TV set to support this wireless transmission technology. But intermediary devices in the form of routers and routers are not needed. The signal is transmitted directly from one device to another.
The connection procedure itself will not cause any difficulties. It will not require much effort or time from you. At least on Xiaomi Redmi note 4x, we managed to set up data transfer to another monitor in just a minute. We did everything as follows:
- First, we activate the function on the TV device. The fact is that on many models it is disabled by default. So it’s better to start with this. In our case, this is a Samsung TV. On the control panel, select the button called “Source”. In the window that pops up on the screen, press “Screen Mirroring”. How to enable miracast on LG? We press the button “Settings” on the remote control. Next, select the “Network” section. Then we find the item “Miracast”. In it, we simply change the position of the switch to “On”. On TVs from other manufacturers, the miracast function is turned on in the same way. If something does not work out, then you can find help on the Internet.
- Let’s leave the TV. But don’t turn it off. Let’s pick up Xiaomi Redmi or mi series. Go to “Settings”.
- We open the subsection “Additional functions”.
- We tap on the item “Wireless display”.
- Now we wait (usually no more than 30-40 seconds) until the smartphone finds an available monitor.
- It remains only to click on it and wait for the connection to complete.
By the way, the algorithm described above is suitable for Xiaomi smartphones with MIUI shell. If you have, for example, Mi a1, running on “pure” Android, then you will need:
- Through the “Settings” go to the “Screen” section.
- Then scroll down and select “Broadcast”.
- Then we do everything as in the first option: select a TV device and synchronize with it.

At the same time, the connection procedure is in many ways similar to when you synchronize your smartphone with a PC:
- Using the microUSB. USB cable, connect the phone to the TV.
- Using the remote control, turn on the TV device and go to the menu.
- Choosing a suitable USB output.

It turns out that you cannot broadcast anything in real time. That is, you can open a photo on your phone, and it will be displayed on the big screen. But you shouldn’t run a video in the browser of your smartphone and wait for it to be displayed on a TV set.
Two devices are connected via HDMI as follows:
- Be sure to turn off the TV.
- We connect the wires, now turn on the TV.
- Using the remote control, open the settings or the main menu.
- We select the broadcast mode via HDMI. If you cannot understand how this is done, then refer to the user manual that came with the TV.

How to set up Xiaomi TVs for playback
There are TVs that offer a game mode that lets you know what it will be used for, and it deactivates all those settings that affect the final image displayed on the screen. Xiaomi TV does not offer any methods, so you have to manually adjust these settings to reduce latency. So follow the instructions below.
First go to Settings and then to Device Settings. Select the entry to which the console is connected and change the label to rename it using video games or in a personalized way to make it easier for you to manage everything.
Then activate Enhanced HDMI This will give you support for the HDMI 2.0 implementation, which will accept UHD signals at 50 / 60p 4: 4: 4 and 4: 2: 2. Finally, go back to Settings and in Image select Advanced Video. In this mode, you disable noise reduction and select Full from the HDMI RGB Range menu. Now you will return to the previous menu and turn off video anti-aliasing there.
Ready, with these simple changes, the response time will be shortened. It will not be the ideal screen for enjoying the most outstanding gaming experience, mainly due to the very limitation of the panel, which is 60 Hz rather than 120 Hz in the higher ranges, but quite good.
Tune your Xiaomi TV to get the best performance while playing
If you bought one of the new Xiaomi TVs with the idea of using this feature to play on your console or PC, it is important that you know how to get the most out of it. So let’s see what adjustments need to be made to get the best possible quality. Changes you can also apply to your current TV and you may not have known.
Using TVs as gaming monitors
Despite the fact that they were in no hurry to come, within a short time it generated a lot of interest from users. We refer to Xiaomi TVs, a product that we really wanted and which we have already been able to analyze here.
The truth is, the work done by the manufacturer lives up to expectations. It’s not a perfect TV, and knowing that its lifespan is so much longer than other consumer electronics products, it might pay a little more. But if you place a bet on it, we believe that you are not mistaken.
However, we are interested to see how to get or get the best quality when we use it to play connect our console. What for? Because by default, TVs are not ready to be used as monitors, and this affects perception, although you may not know this yet. So we put you in a situation.
The TV is designed for watching TV series, films or programs of traditional TV channels. This is a type of content where quality prevails, and we, as viewers, should only consume without interacting with it. The same does not happen with video games, and what is shown on the screen responds to actions performed with the remote, so the response time should be as close to zero as possible.
To achieve the best picture quality, a TV uses a number of processes and algorithms that analyze the incoming video signal to soften it, improve its sharpness, smoothness, etc. All of these processes delay the “drawing” of the image onto the screen. The wider this time, the more what was known as it was. So this is what we will try to cut to the maximum.
Settings to set up any TV as a game screen
What we have commented for Xiaomi TVs is valid for any other TV. All you have to do is check with the manufacturer’s instructions to find out where each of these options are.
As a reminder, you only need to deactivate those related to motion anti-aliasing, dynamic contrast analysis, color enhancement, or other filters that you may have seen. All these processes only add more input lag and will not benefit the gaming experience. Then finally check the calibration and see if you can expand the RGB color range to full.
Ready, now you can be sure to get the best video game experience with your TV.
Turning on the Xiaomi Smart TV for the first time
Xiaomi is known for manufacturing a wide range of Spectra devices. And of course, many users think of smartphones first. But Xiaomi also makes Smart TVs. But how do you connect them? We will tell you about this today.

The next step is to select the system language. Russian language is available, but we did not find Belarusian.
Next comes the choice of setting: via an Android device or not. If you choose via Android, the TV will take almost all the data from the owner’s smartphone. But such a smartphone may not be available, so consider the option of full manual configuration.
We connect Smart-TV to Wi-Fi. We select the home access point and then enter the password. By the way, for ease of input, you can connect a wired keyboard to the TV. By the way, these TVs support connection via wired Internet.
To fully unfold the TV, you need to connect it to Google services. To do this, the next step is to log into your Google account. Gmail is used to sign in.
You can use your smartphone, computer, or remote control to log in. Through the latter, we will connect. To do this, on the virtual keyboard, enter the login (mail) and password from it.
The next step is reading and agreeing to the user agreement.
Next, we give permission to use the location of the TV or skip this action. In order for the TV to use all the possibilities, it is better to issue the resolution.
Next, Android asks for permission to collect user data. It’s best to refuse.
The next step is the name for the TV. You can choose one of the proposed names or write your own.
Next, we read and agree with the user agreement from Xiaomi.
It is better to refuse a request to improve the performance of devices.
Next, we get acquainted with the capabilities of the TV, flipping through the displayed slides.
In the next step, the system will show you how to use the remote control to change systems. Indeed, the Xiaomi TV has as many as 2 shells. pure Android and PatchWall. Each of them has a dedicated button on the remote. PatchWall is activated by the Mi button, and pure Android by the button with a drawn circle.
The TV will then boot into the system. And the user will be able to enjoy the content on the new TV.
Improve the quality of your video games
If you are using a TV with a console or PC, you can improve your gaming experience. To do this, go to “Settings” “Device Settings”. Now activate HDMI Advanced Mode. Then in picture settings go to Advanced Video and disable noise reduction, video anti-aliasing and enable HDMI RGB range.
These simple settings will allow you to reproduce the image captured from the console or PC without any changes when it is displayed. This way, you get quality and improvements by reducing the delay between the execution of an action on the controller and its reflection.
My Remote Controller, replacing the physical controller
If the TV remote control fails or you lose it at home, you can use your smartphone as a remote control. You only need to download the Mi Remote Controller application. This is not the only application of this type that you can use, but together with the official Google (Android and iOS) it is the best for this TV.
