  1. Hi! I would like to know if you can set up the anycast m2 plua in a wifi without internet connection. Also, what's the diffrence between this and the anycast m2?

    1. Hi Sany, Thank you for dropping by. Yes you can setup the anycast without internet connection, but you can only use the mirroring mode and not the streaming mode as it needs internet connection.

  2. Hi everyone, I have a problem. i bought my anycast a few months, and my version is 10.600 and i don´t have ant problem but, recently my iphone upgrade to ios 11 and my iphone airplay don´t shows my anyvcast only shows in the music menu as airdrop, and send the sound but not the image. I saw that upgrade to the new version is compatible with the ios 11. But i cant upgrade my anycast because the ip can´t be connected. Can you help me yo resolve this problem?

    1. Hello, welcome to shopzadaph. With regards to your problem, unfortunately i dont own an iphone to test that out but I will try to help you find a solution.

  3. Thank you, it works perfectly.. God bless you

    1. You're welcome. glad to help. God Bless you too! :)

  4. Hi there my any-cast dongle M2 Plus doesn't show up on my WiFi at all so I cant select it to start with what should I do

    1. Make sure that your anycast dongle is turning on, to verify that make sure you're on the main page of the anycast. Next thing to check is make sure the anycast wifi receiver is not being blocked so that it can be detected by your mobile phone/device. you can also try using other device to isolate the problem. I hope you can sort it out. Good Luck!

    2. Thank you I have tried all of that and still cant find it.This is my second any cast I have had unfortunately it go damaged as that one worked perfectly.
      My new device is showing a different home page than my original one so Im not entirely sure if it is correct its a blue screen with two sides one for apple connection and one for android I have it set to android as I have a HTC 10 do you have any further thoughts
      Thank you

    3. If you have a blue screen page then it's possible that you're on an old firmware. however, even that is the case you shouldn't have any problem searching for the wifi using your device. Can you try the anycast dongle on another TV? It's odd that you can't find the anycast dongle wifi ID on your device. Also, try changing modes and see if the wifi ID of the anycast dongle will pop up with either the miracast or airplay mode.

  5. thanks you I will try that next

  6. hi how do i use my iPhone 4g connection to stream while using the anycast m2 in airplay mode?
