  1. Thanks LilBob for sharing these details. It would certainly be quite helpful for others looking for ways to connect their devices.

  2. I’d recommend using media server apps, personally, I downloaded ArkMC for Mac and iPhone. On my PC I have Servio and Windows Media Player as a media server, my iPhone works like a remote controller here and I stream any media from my PC to TV wirelessly. It streams my media to different devices without any other devices, cables etc.
