I have tried casting movies to different TVs, none of them Apple and everytime I get the same error Cyberlink PowerDVD cannot cast directly to an Apple TV. I do not own anything from Apple. This happens on an LG (about 5 years old), a Samsung 65" 4K TV (2 years old), and a Toshiba Fire TV (6 months old).

What are trying to cast? A video file? I think you need to have Apple TV/Roku/Chromecast etc. on your network to cast with PowerDVD:

Some of my movies that I have a physical copy of have no digital version so I have ripped them to digital format mp4/mkv format.

I am trying to cast to a TV that shows up in the list of available tvs that show up for casting when I right click the file and choose sent to... I did try it with the fire stick and that works. Just not the Sansung 65 inch 8 series TV. I don't care about the other tvs. I just tried those to see if it worked on them. So it only seems to work on the fire stick so far. The Samsung tv has a built in app for Prime video so I didn't attach the fire stick but I can move one there if it will only work with roku/fire sticks
