3. Change the TV’s input setting to HDMI. The TV should now have the same image as what appears on your laptop screen.

Please note that you cannot navigate the Concert Library webpage with your TV remote – this can only be done by using your laptop.

If your TV does not show the same image and/or if there is no audio, ensure that the cable is inserted all the way. Consult your TV’s user manual if problems continue to arise with the image or sound.

If you own an Apple TV device as well as an iPhone or iPad, you can alternatively use AirPlay to start watching a concert in the Concert Library app on your mobile device, then cast it to the television with your Apple TV.
