I. Do not I couldn’t find the ap and also wanted to make sure the TV could talk to the ap it is an older TV
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Right now I have it hooked up with a USB cable but cant figure out which input setting to use.
Mac Support Specialist: tyroneboman, Mac Genius replied 7 months ago
Okay, the only way to mirror the iPad will be to use an HDMI adapter on the iPad. The USB connection won't work on the Vizio unless you have some movie files downloaded to the iPad and then it will play the file but not mirror the screen.

What is a readable movie file? .avi
Mac Support Specialist: tyroneboman, Mac Genius replied 7 months ago
No,. When you connect the iPad and it has a readable movie file the Vizio will have a media detected box pop up on the screen. You can also choose media from the Vizio menu. Does your Vizio have the menu banner at the bottom of the screen when you press the V on remote?

Mac Support Specialist: tyroneboman, Mac Genius replied 7 months ago
Okay, the movie files will need to be in mov. Mp4. Flv. I'm not sure if avi. will work, it may.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
