    I am not able to share nord phone screen to android tv with mobile hotspot
    And Tv connected to same Hotspot
    Tried both 2.4GHz and 5GHz
    With 2.4GHz only I can connect TV

    But if I use another wifi router and both phone and TV connected to that network I can share phone screen to TV without any issues

    Please let us know how can this be solved ?

    Most TVs support only 2.4 GHz. So what you are trying is to create a Hotspot that you want your TV to connect as a wirless network and then to cast your phone to the TV. I cannot see how this will work. Cast requires WiFi and Bluetooth to be on on the phone and both TV and phone to be connected to the same network. But in your scenario the phone is used to create a Hotspot.

    While using Hotspot if My Tv connected to the same
    My phone and TV are in same network
    And with this combination I can share YouTube content to TV from phone
    But not complete phone
    Where as If both TV and Phone connected to seperate wifi I can share complete phone
    in any case I did not turn on bluetooth
    not sure in cast do we use bluetooth?
    Did I miss something here or?

    What does "Not complete phone" mean?

    Sharing total phone
    I.e. what ever we open on phone we can see the same on Tv like we share the screen

    Just tobe clear I cannot share video streaming apps which don't support casting - in wifi router case also that is fine
    So I am not pointing towards

    For example I can cast watsapp video call if both devices connected to wifi router but with hotspot caseI cannot cast them
    This is jus an example

    But in general I am talking about Mobile screen cast

    To me it sounds like a limitation because phone's wifi is used both for hotspot and casting. Will try to replicate that when I have time.

    Okay I tested it. Created a hotspot and connected the TV to it. But in order to cast I need to turn on the wifi which disables the hotspot.

    Thank you very much for checking this out
    True cannot turn on hotspot and WiFi same time

    On the side note
    Is It not possible like iOS you can turn on WiFi and cannot connect to any router?

    Hi

    On the same line
    With hotspot I connected TV and Laptop
    With this combination I cannot cast my laptop to Tv using Chromecast

    Where as I can do the same If I use some other hotspot or router

    Is there any limitation?
