Connecting Mobile Device and Toshiba Fire TV
With the capabilities activated on your Toshiba Fire TV, it’s time to connect your smartphone, tablet, or computer:
- Pull down your device’s Quick Settings menu then tap Screen Mirroring or Cast.
- From the list, select your Toshiba Fire TV.
- Allow the connection when prompted on both displays.
Success! Your mobile device and Toshiba Fire TV are now paired for screen sharing.
Casting Your Screen
When connected, tap the Cast or Share Screen button on your device to begin casting your display to the TV.
There are two options when sharing your screen:
1. Casting Entire Screen
This mirrors everything on your smartphone, tablet, or computer screen onto the Toshiba Fire TV. It’s perfect for:
- Streaming videos
- Viewing photos
- Web browsing
2. Sharing Specific Apps
Some devices let you share single apps instead of your entire display.
This is helpful for casting:
- Mobile games
- Creative/art apps
- Office apps
- Other non-media apps
Tap the Cast button from within the app you want to share. Only that app will be displayed on the Toshiba Fire TV.
Once done sharing your screen, here is how to disconnect your devices:
- Android: Open quick settings and tap Disconnect
- iOS: Open Control Center and tap Stop Mirroring
- Windows/ChromeOS: Close the Cast streaming session
This stops the screen sharing between your device and the Toshiba Fire TV.
Tips for Seamless Screen Mirroring
Having issues with lag, aspect ratio, or other problems?
Try these troubleshooting tips:
Reducing Lag for Smoother Streaming
If your screen casting is choppy or delayed, it’s likely due to Wi-Fi interference.
Attempting the following fixes:
- Close unused apps on the device to free up bandwidth.
- Move the device closer to the Toshiba Fire TV to strengthen the signal.
- If possible, connect the Toshiba Fire TV to a router via ethernet cable for maximum speeds.
Adjusting Aspect Ratio for Best Viewing
If your casted display doesn’t fill the entire TV screen correctly:
- On your mobile device, adjust the expanded/full-screen view settings in the streaming app.
- From the Toshiba Fire TV settings, tweak the HDMI picture size to fit or zoom to fill the screen.

By sharing your device’s screen, you can do many things on the Toshiba Fire TV.
iOS and Android smartphones and tablets have the most reliable screen sharing capabilities. Windows 10 computers and Chromebooks also work well.
