- Select the SCREEN MIRRORING option.
- You will then need to follow the instructions for your specific phone or laptop to allow screen mirroring.
- Once both the TV and device are set to mirror, select your TV on your device to pair.
If all went well, you should now be seeing your device screen displayed on your Toshiba TV!
If those instructions didn’t work for you, or if you simply want to use an app so that you don’t have to be constantly going through the steps of pairing the two devices when you want to mirror, there is another option.
