iPhone mirror to TV

13
Posted 8th Mar
I have an LG OLED TV and Sky Q

I can stream YouTube but anything my dad wants to watch for. His browser (Asian channels) will only show up as Audio on the sky q.

Is the easiest way Apple TV? Chrome casts / Prime TV stick work also? iPhone mirror is what I want I think

I don’t think it works on Chromecast or Firestick, don’t know about Apple TV. I know you can by an adapter but it’s £50 and only outputs 1080p

I mean obviously Apple TV is going to have airplay and an old one is cheaper than 50

We did it just won’t render properly, it works on the downstairs tv and phone though which is the annoying part

I also realise I have an old Apple TV downstairs but need to buy the plug n remote but also not sure if I need Ethernet for airplay as it’s wall mounted and not WiFi

Both devices need to be connected to the same network if I remember rightly

Ethernet and WiFi is the same network as far as any standard home setup is concerned.

Yes I just meant ethernet would be a PITA because my father who set up the wall mount through the electrician, neither was forward thinking enough to use an extension or ask me to leave space for a 10cm 5 port ethernet switch...
There is also apps on the Firestick AppStore which allow you to use Airplay

Yep I was thinking Firestick because my parents could then watch Eros now - except, all those apps are very low-rated.

If it’s a movie or a tv show I just use Kodi with Real Debrid
