Can I cast or screen mirror on Xumo TVs?

All Xumo TVs support casting from selected apps like Netflix, YouTube, and Spotify. Launch the corresponding app on your mobile device and then select the cast icon (typically located in the top right of your mobile device's screen). Choose the name of your Xumo TV to cast the content on your TV. 

Note: Your mobile device and Xumo TV must be on the same Wi-Fi network. 


Xumo TVs also support Apple AirPlay, which allows you to stream or share content from your Apple device to your Xumo TV. You can stream a video, share photos, or mirror your device's screen. Learn more about Apple AirPlay on Xumo TV.


Element Xumo TVs support screen mirroring from an Android or Windows device. For more information, see Do Xumo TVs come in different sizes and resolutions.

How do I screen mirror my Android or Windows device to my Xumo TV?

If you have an Element Xumo TV, you can mirror your Android or Windows device to your TV.

  1. Ensure Mobile video casting setting is ON in Settings > Privacy
  2. Pull up the "screen mirroring" function on the device you wish to mirror (e.g., your Android phone or tablet, or press WINDOWS+K on your Windows device)
  3. Wait for the list of available devices to populate and then choose "Element Xumo TV - (Friendly name)"
  4. A pop-up will appear on the TV asking if you want to connect to your device - choose "CONNECT"
  5. A distractor will appear on the TV. Within 30 seconds, you should see a mirror of your device screen on the TV.

Once screen mirroring has started, pressing HOME or BACK will take you back Home. Using TV voice commands or pressing app keys or the Input key will stop the screen mirror and take you to the app/location specified.


Note: If you do not choose to "CONNECT" on the TV in step four within 30 seconds, the prompt will auto-dismiss, and you must re-try casting again.




If you encounter issues or errors with screen mirroring, try the following:

  1. Ensure your TV is on the latest release (the "build timestamp" in Settings > Device settings > About should be from 2024).
  2. Ensure Wi-Fi is enabled on your secondary device (phone or tablet).
  3. Move closer to the TV.
  4. Minimize the number of active Wi-Fi devices nearby.
  5. Ensure Mobile video casting in Settings > Privacyis ON. (Turning this setting OFF will disable screen mirroring).
  6. Ensure the TV is ON (you cannot initiate screen mirroring when the TV is OFF).



Why do I see a black screen on my TV when playing video on my device while screen mirroring?

Screen mirroring on Xumo TV does not include High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP encryption). Thus, you will see black video (often with audio) for all encrypted content you play on your source device while screen mirroring.

When you connect to the TV, your source device may alert you about encrypted content. 



Can I start screen mirroring from a second device while another device is already screen mirroring?

No. To begin screen mirroring from a second device, you must stop screen mirroring on the first device. To do this, press BACK or HOME on your TV remote or stop screen mirroring from the first device itself.
