    At home I have a television (obviously), digital decoder (Humax iRHD-5300c), a tablet and finally a Xbox One.
    The digital decoder is connected with HDMI to the Xbox One who is then going back to the television. So I watch television using my Xbox One, very easy switching to other apps on the console. :)

    When I want to watch a movie do I plug the HDMI cable of the digital decoder into my tablet. When done am I switching it back. That is so much work... I got to sit down on my lazy ass and plug all the cables over. :zipped:

    My tablet supports Miracast. It's a Surface Pro for those who are interested. So I can buy a Miracast dongle, put in the back of my Xbox One and use that for viewing movies through my tablet. But, can I also connect my digital decoder to the dongle? It would be awesome to have a Miracast dongle giving priority to the tablet and then to the digital decoder, or a dongle with HDMI input in case it has no Miracast connection.

    What for dongles are my options? :)
