Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Belkin Screencast TV Adapter for Intel (Accessory)
Contrary to what other reviewers may say this item does not work with Windows 8. I have a Sony Vaio Duo 13 with all the necessary Widi drivers preinstalled with Windows 8. The laptop cannot detect the Screencast at all. I have read on the internet about updating drivers to get the device to work with Windows 8 but this is not possible unless you have a Windows 7 laptop that is compatible to use to connect and update the firmware! Both the manufacturer (Belkin) and the supplier (BestBuyIT) were not interested when I told them I was using Windows 8.

I recently bought one of these through Amazon. Initially it would not connect. After many attempts I finally connected and made a full update to the latest drivers. I can now connect but only for a few minutes. After it cuts off WiDi cannot locate the Screencast. I have to switch it off and wait for a complete cool down to connect again but only for a few minutes. I can confirm that I have the same adapter that definitely works with Windows 8, so I suspect your device is defective as mine.
