You can display the screen of a mobile device (such as a smartphone or tablet) on the TV to view photos, videos or websites.

To change the band setting (for experts)
When the standby screen for Screen mirroring is displayed, press the OPTIONS button, then select [Band Setting].
[Auto]: Normally use this option. It automatically selects an appropriate band for the Screen mirroring function.
[Auto (2.4GHz Band)]: Use this option when connecting with devices that support 2.4GHz only. This option may support more devices than other options.
[Auto (5GHz Band)]: Use this option when connecting with devices that support 5GHz. This option may improve video streaming quality.
Note that when you select this option, the TV cannot connect with devices that support 2.4GHz only (except for the standby screen for Screen mirroring).
[Select a Channel]: Use this option to select a specific wireless channel.
Note that when your TV is connected to a wireless router (access point), [Band Setting] cannot be changed.
- For information about the supported wireless band of your device, refer to the instruction manual of your device.
- The 5GHz band may not be supported depending on your region/country. If the 5GHz band is not supported, you can only use [Auto] and [Select a Channel].
- A different band might be used depending on the connected wireless device.
- While the standby screen for the Screen mirroring is displayed, the wireless connection between the TV and your wireless router (access point) is disconnected, therefore communication via the Internet (such as an incoming call) is stopped.
