Basic options for connecting a smartphone to a TV

When choosing the appropriate method for connection, you need to decide on the capabilities of the TV. modern LG models are equipped with a WI-FI module. this allows you to use the TV to wirelessly connect to the Internet and synchronize it with other devices. If such a module is not provided in the design, the only possible option is to connect through a wire, which creates some inconvenience.

Before connecting the iPhone to an LG TV, the user can purchase a special set-top box, such as an Apple TV. It is specially designed for connection to a TV and allows you to significantly expand its functionality. Let’s consider this and another way of connecting devices in more detail.

AirPlay modes

Mac OS Big Sur prompts the user to switch between two modes:

  • video replay “Built-in Retina display”. the picture will be completely repeated;
  • use as a separate monitor. the TV can act as a second space where you can create your own folders, manage files. To switch to the second monitor, you need to move the cursor to the edge of the current monitor. This will move the cursor to another monitor. To return to the previous monitor, the cursor moves back to its original state. In Windows, this mode is called “Extend”.

Each mode can be further customized.

  • Click on the item “Display settings”. A menu will open, which can also be accessed through the system parameters, subsection “Monitors”.
  • Open the “Layout” tab.
  • If the separate monitor mode is currently working, then you can drag the devices relative to each other. Arrange the monitors so that it is most convenient to switch the cursor between displays. The built-in monitor in MacBook is designated by default as the smaller one with a white bar at the top. This is the designation for the main monitor. The line can be moved to another monitor, thus making the main TV. If you put the connected TV on the left of the laptop display, then the cursor needs to be moved to the left. If the MacBook is at the bottom, then you will have to move the mouse pointer up. Simply put, the TV becomes an extension of the built-in screen.
  • If the video replay mode is active, then when you open the display settings, an optimization window with the name of the TV will automatically appear.

Next, you need to decide which monitor you will be looking at. That is, you still need to assign some kind of display as the main one so that it shows as high quality as possible.

If you need to work specifically on a MacBook, then it is better to optimize for the built-in display. So, the picture will be in the same state on the MacBook screen as it was before the connection. The image will still be duplicated, it just may not be on the entire TV screen. If you need to optimize the quality for your TV, then select the TV in the “Optimize for” item. The picture will be stretched to fill the entire screen of the TV device. Resolution will change on MacBook too.

On the macOS version of Catalina with modes, the situation is almost the same. There should be no configuration problems.

Connection instructions

The general principle of synchronization is always the same. You need to find the duplication function and connect to the found TV. But there may be some differences in the name and location of the option on different versions of macOS.

Before pairing, be sure to connect both devices to the same Wi-Fi hotspot.

Action plan for macOS Catalina:

  • Open “System Preferences”.
  • Go to the “Monitors” section.
  • At the bottom of the window, under “AirPlay Monitor”, expand the list and select a compatible TV.
  • A four-digit numeric code appears on the TV screen.
  • Enter the numbers in the field that appears on the MacBook.

Only the first connection is confirmed. Then the TV will remember the MacBook and will connect automatically.

Algorithm for MacOS Big Sur:

  • In the control room, click on the “Screen Repeat” function.
  • Select the detected TV.
  • Enter the code from the TV on the laptop.

After that, the picture will simultaneously appear on the TV and on the “apple” laptop.

And the monitor icon (or two) will appear in the menu bar, through which you can select the mode of operation of both displays.

AirPlay connection

AirPlay is a wireless technology used by Apple.

Before connecting your MacBook to a TV via AirPlay, you need to be sure that your TV devices support the technology.

If your TV brands LG, Samsung, Sony, Philips were released after 2018, then AirPlay support is most likely there. You can make sure 100% of the AirPlay function in the technical specifications.

The list of such functions is hardly written in the characteristics that are indicated in the documentation for the TV receiver. Therefore, you need to find a complete table with characteristics on the Internet by the TV model code.

  • Find out your device model. It is written on the packaging from the equipment, in the operating instructions and on the back of the case.
  • Open the Yandex or Google search engine in your browser.
  • In the search box, write the query “characteristics [model]”.
  • Go to several sites and search through the content of your browser (CtrlF) try to find the presence of the AirPlay option. It is enough to enter part of the name into the search line, for example, “Air”. If a match is found, the browser will highlight the desired fragment. In this case, it is possible to display the MacBook’s screen on the TV over the air.

If the technology doesn’t work on your TV receiver, you’ll have to use a wired MacBook connection or buy an external set-top box.

If sound is playing on MacBook

The problem can be both with the “air” method of connection, and when connecting via an HDMI cable. To output the sound from the laptop to the TV, you need to open the MacBook settings, go to the “Sound” section.

On the Exit tab, click the TV once. Sound will automatically switch to TV speakers.

If there is no sound at all, make sure the volume is not set to minimum or the TV is not in “quiet” mode. The latter is indicated by the crossed out speaker icon on the TV screen. Once on the remote, press the “Mute” button (crossed out speaker).

Don’t forget to turn on AirPlay

On some TVs, including the Apple TV Box, you may need to enable AirPlay first.

On Apple TV, go to Settings, then AirPlay and HomeKit. The first setting is responsible for enabling or disabling the technology.

On Samsung Smart TVs, you need to open “Settings”, go to the “General” section, subsection “Apple AirPlay Settings”.

Inside, the status of the option in the first line is also checked.

Black stripes around the edges

The resolution is not matched to the TV. Stripes are eliminated by performing optimization, as it was written earlier. Let’s repeat the instruction one more time.

The MacBook will automatically adjust the picture for the TV. Additionally, two parameters will appear:

  • “Best for”. the maximum suitable resolution for the TV screen will be automatically set;
  • “Scaling”. you can set the resolution yourself. It can be useful when the resolution is automatically set to much higher, due to which the elements on the TV are very small. Decrease the resolution to increase the size of text, windows, and other elements. But the quality of the display will also decrease, since the resolution is the main parameter.

You can always zoom in (zoom in) the image. To do this, you need to enable zoom using hotkeys.

  • Open the Accessibility menu.
  • In the “Magnification” subsection, enable the “Use keyboard shortcuts for magnification” option. Memorize (or write down) standard combinations.
  • Next, select the screen you want to enlarge. Click on “Select display”, expand the list and assign a TV.

Streaming stops due to sleep mode

By default, the MacBook goes to sleep after a certain amount of time. Consequently, the transmission of the signal to the TV is stopped, which means that the broadcast is also interrupted. You can fix the problem by temporarily disabling hibernation.

  • Run the Terminal utility through Finder. The program is located in the folder “Programs”. “Utilities”.
  • In the working area, run the command “pmset noidle”.

You do not need to close the terminal. As long as the utility is running with a running command, it will not go to sleep.

Returning to the original work of the sleep mode is performed by the key combination “CtrlC” in the terminal window, or by closing the utility.
