    ok, I'm at the end of my wits here. Tried EVERYTHING I can find. I can *easily* stream any FILE format (using Plex) but I cannot play BDs/DVDs from my comp to my FireTV Stick. I keep reading on how it's "easily" done, but I can't get it to work.

    My system DOES support Miracast (Miracast: Available, with HDCP), and I have been able to connect the device in the Bluetooth section (Add Bluetooth or Other Devices), I have a wireless connect as well as a hardwired connection to the PC, but I still see nothing when I select CONNECT (well, I see my Roku, but that's not what I want to use). I'm mystified as to why this is SO difficult.

    PowerDVD18 was *supposed* to support casting to Amazon devices, but it, again, ONLY supports files, not discs.

    There USED to be a was with SMB1.0 to use Kodi, but now that SMB1.0 has been removed, I can't do that.

    Would SERIOUSLY appreciate any assistance with this. Can't believe I'm the only person who wants to do this .... :(

    I hadn't considered it an IPTV issue (those are usually streaming from the net, not what I'm looking for - I want to play from my comp in one room with the BD drive and watch on the TV with the FireTV in another, as opposed to using a stand-alone BD player or laptop - VERY inconvenient) .... any suitable site suggestions? :) And no Plex doesn't handle discs - they've stated that their software design can't handle even DVD menus, let alone the complex BD menus.
