LG K30 Screen Mirroring to Roku, Samsung TV, Fire TV Stick etc.

For Screen Mirroring a wired connection works best. There is hardly any frame rate loss and the best part is it works without an internet connection. However, the bad news is that these days quite a few Android smartphones offer MHL / Slimport / Micro-HDMI support.

These days, wireless screen mirroring is getting more and more popular. With the advent of Smart TV and Wireless Display Adapters, MHL support looks like a thing of the past.

Now Let’s talk about LG K30.On K30 we don’t get the cast option which is found on Motorola and other Android phones with stock vanilla android. Screen mirroring was possible on LG K20 plus after flashing Lineage OS Custom ROM. However, there is no root available for LG K30 as of now. So, we cannot flash a Custom ROM on LG K30.

The bad news is that K30 is not compatible with MHL as well. Else we would have mirrored our screen to the TV without Wifi/Internet. The wired connection is also more stable with less lag.

Thus, we have to resort to other options for screen mirroring/casting on K30.

In this post, we are going to mirror the LG K30 to the TV without using Chromecast. So let’s get going

I have tried dozens of app on the play store to mirror my K30 on the TV screen.

The majority of them are completely useless and filled with ads. The only app which did a commendable job was “Cast to TV -XCast” from Inshot Inc. After all, it has got a 4.7 rating from 130k users.

Download and install the app from the Play store app or using this play store link.

This app works with Roku, Chromecast, Fire TV Stick, Xbox, Apple TV, Android Smart TV & DLNA devices.
