Description

Application to mirror the screen of your Mac to any Sony Bravia Smart TV. No wires and no additional hardware needed! You can also stream individual video files from your Mac to your TV. Also, we included the option to watch one window on your Mac, and another window on your TV!

This works on any Sony Smart TV from the 2012 models onwards.

In using the app, there will be about 1 to 2 seconds of latency. So this mirroring is not suitable for gaming.

However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, watching photos, and much more!

The quality of your experience will be dependent on the quality of your local network. Some tips to enhance the experience:

- Preferably, connect your TV by LAN cable to your router.
- Use an "ac" router. If you don't have one, then an "n" router.
- Try not to overload your wifi network by moving big files around while you are mirroring.

How the app works:
First, make sure that your Sony TV is on the same local network and same subnet as your Mac. The TV should not be in screen mirroring mode, but just on "TV" Mode or any HDMI IN port.

After launching the app, you will see the app icon appearing in the top bar of your Mac and the app will look for your TV on the network. It will show your TV when it has found it. Now, you have two options:

Mirror your Mac Screen:
Use this option to put the screen of your Mac on TV. In source, you can select which screen (or attached monitor) you want to display on TV. If you are running multiple applications on your Mac, you can also select which application window you want to see on TV.

Enable Sound: check this to hear the sound of your Mac coming from the TV. You will need the additional (free) audio driver, which you can download here: http://bit.ly/MirrorAudio

Play Video File:
Use this option if you have a video file on your Mac and you want to play just the file on TV. Drop it in the box and it will play on TV.

Settings (the icon in the bottom right of the app): click here to request support from our 24/7 support staff. They usually respond within 2 hours on any query that you might have. If your question is technical, please also include the diagnostics information.

Limitations: Apple has HDCP DRM protection for playing iTunes movies. This means that screen mirroring is not possible when watching movies from iTunes.

When you like the app, please don't forget to give it a positive rating! Thanks in advance from the AirBeamTV development team!

Works just fine!

I’ve only used it for a day, but it seems to be working just fine from my MacBook Pro (Sierra) to my 4K Sony Bravia. The delay isnt an issue for me because - really, you’re watching it on one screen not two. I did have to dload the extra codec for playing audio and after I’m done I have to click on the speaker icon to change back to “internal speakers”. It’s all good as long as it works!

ONLY issue was I was kinda miffed the demo is only 2 minutes. I was trying to fix things and troubleshoot and 2 minutes is just not enough time, you have to keep restarting the application. I almost backed out of buying the app because of this. Other than that, I am happy.

Unusable.

Waste of $10. This is the first time I have ever written a review, but felt compelled since I just wasted $10 on something that DOES NOT WORK. I was told by a sales man to get this app to use with my Sony Adroid TV and that I could mirror my MacBook just fine. Well, turns out 90% of the time the app failed to open, and the 2 times I did get it to open the lag was SO LONG that it was useless. Not only the lag, but also the glitching. The mouse pointer tracked about 30 seconds later so if you want to use it as a monitor temporarily it wont work.

After this purchase and lots of frustration, I went out and bought the Apple TV. Apple TV is worth every penny. It will do what you want it to do.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to review our Mirror for Sony TV app. Like we say in the description: there will be 1 to 3 seconds latency between your Mac and your TV, if you are experiencing 30 seconds, please send us the diagnostics log, so we can analyse what might go wrong in your local network.

Works Perfectly

Great app! Works perfectly. Had one question—Excellent customer service. I have a family member that streams and games way too much……..I have two routers. Both are fairly new and pretty nifty. The ASUS RT 1750 had some problems with both of us streaming. The GOOGLE WIFI handles both amazingly well…….Who would have thought…….
