What’s the reason why your phone doesn’t work when it’s projected onto your TV?
Nowadays, all TVS have smart functions. One of the functions is to put the mobile phone on the TV, which is convenient for people to watch TV and play WeChat at the same time. However, some people can’t put the TV on the mobile phone, what’s the reason?
If the TV is not intelligent ordinary TV, it can not support wireless transmission; If the TV is a smart TV, it can be wirelessly connected to the mobile phone by turning on the TV’s Wi-Fi Display function and the mobile phone’s wi-fi Display function, which is supported by most smart TVS and smart phones in the market. After successful connection, all contents displayed on the phone can be transmitted to the TV and displayed wirelessly (including pictures and videos on the phone, etc.).
The method of mobile phone projection to the TV:
- Using AirPlay for wireless screen projection is obviously the most convenient. To ensure that the mobile phone and the monitor are in the same WiFi condition, we just need to call up the Control center of iPhone, click the AirPlay option, and select the device to connect and complete the screen projection.
- It’s worth noting that AirPlay will have a new, more user-friendly name for the upcoming iOS11 — screen mirroring, with roughly the same usage and location. However, there are drawbacks to wireless projection, such as latency, poor stability and the possibility of mismatches.
- Wired connection; So, if you need a more stable way of casting your screen, try wired casting. But wired screens can be more expensive than wireless ones, requiring separate adapters. For example, the Lightning DIGITAL audio converter can be externally connected to the TV/monitor HDMI interface for screen projection.
- Similar to the iPhone, Android phones also have two modes of screen projection. Android phones also support the function of wireless screen projection. Generally speaking, no matter which brand of mobile phone, under the condition that the mobile phone and the monitor are in the same WiFi condition, click more connection mode in Settings — Network and connection, you can see the options of wireless display, and then click to match.
Of course, there are Android phones that support wired connectivity. MHL is actually the name of the HDMI phone version, but since Android 4.4, the number of phones that support this feature has become less and less, and it’s even harder to find a phone that supports MHL screen.
