On your LG TV, there will be a setting whether the TV can be found by the Mirror for LG TV app. This is how it looks like on WebOS based LG TVs:


On other LG TVs (older models) you will find the same setting, but it might be called DLNA DMR (Digital Media Renderer) ON or OFF.

To allow the Mirror for LG TV app on your Mac to find your LG TV, always set this setting to ON.

Panasonic TV:

In order for our screen mirroring app for iPhone, iPad or your Mac to work on your Panasonic Smart TV, please read the instructions below.

For the latest Panasonic TV models, enable DMR (Digital Media Renderer) in TV Settings: With your remote control, go to: Menu / Setup / Network / Application / DMR: ON

Sony TV:

Some of the latest Sony TVs are based on Android TV as the operating system of the TV. Sometimes, some of the services running on the TV, under Android, stop working. The only way to resolve that is to do a full power cycle reboot on the TV. (power plug out of the wall, wait 5 seconds and back in again).

After that, the services will start again and you can use the Mirror for Sony TV app to connect to the TV.

For other TVs, please also make sure it can be connected by other devices. If your TV is connected through a powerline adapter. Most powerline adapters create a separate subnet, which means that your Smart TV will not be able to reach your Mac to get the screen mirroring video stream.

Please connect your TV in the same way to your router as your Mac is connected to your router.
