Did you know that you can project our services on to your TV?
If you would like to use your TV, instead of a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet, for watching our live streamed High Holiday services, we are sharing some quick tips on how to set it up:
• If you have an Apple iPhone or iPad, Apple makes a DisplayPort that will allow you to connect an HDMI cable from your iPhone or iPad to your television. You should be able to purchase the DisplayPort and cable (two separate items) for less than $30 total. This may also work with any laptop you already own.
• If you have an Android phone or tablet (or a computer running a Chrome web browser), Google makes a Chromecast device where you can send anything from a web browser to your TV. The Chromecast plugs directly into your television, but the laptop can be anywhere in your home as long as you have a wireless internet signal. You can purchase a Chromecast device for about $30.
• If you already have a smart TV, there is probably an app on the TV that allows you to send from your smartphone or computer directly to the TV as long as they are both on the same wireless network. If you have the make and model of your television, you can Google “How to mirror my smartphone or tablet directly to my MAKE/MODEL of TV”.
• If you have another streaming device (Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Firestick, etc.), there is also going to be a way to mirror the signal from your phone, tablet or computer directly to the TV (again, as long as they are both on the same wireless network). You can look on the support pages of the streaming device, Apple or Google for more information.
Your cable/internet provider can help, as well as your kids, grandkids or the 16-year-old kid next door…they can help too!
