Connecting to an Apple TV
Please note that you need an Apple device to connect to an Apple TV.
- Make sure your device is connected to the correct WiFi network. All the details to connect will be on the poster in the space, as well as in the app once your reservation is set to begin. (Having some issues connecting to the WiFi? Consult the following article.)
- Using the remotes found in the space, turn on the flatscreen TV and the Apple TV.
- Scroll through the different inputs using the TV remote to locate the correct input.
- Turn the AirPlay on your device on. Not sure how? Click here for Apple's walkthrough.
- Select the correct AirPlay channel that matches the device.
Troubleshooting Tricks for the Apple TV:
- Ensure that all of the cables are properly plugged into the Apple TV box, and to the back of the TV.
- Try switching the different inputs on the TV using the remote. You can do this by clicking on the Input button. (This button may also be labelled Source.)
- Having trouble locating the remotes? They will be in a beaker on the table, or on a surface close to the TV.
Connecting With an HDMI Cable
- Ensure the device you're trying to connect is equipped with an HDMI port.
(Note: if you don't have an HDMI port, you may need an adapter to connect with the HDMI cable. Our spaces come equipped with one USB-C to HDMI adapter, and one Mini DisplayPort / Thunderbolt to HDMI adapter. These adapters will be attached to the HDMI cable itself, and you can use the correct one to connect the HDMI cable to a USB-C port or a Mini DisplayPort / Thunderbolt port.)
- Locate the HDMI cable—it should be coiled and hung on a hook behind the flatscreen TV.
- Plug the HDMI cable into the back of the TV. Depending on which port you use, that will be the input you'll need to use on the TV.
- Once you have the cable properly plugged into your computer to the TV, select Input on the TV remote. If you can see what the port is labelled, you can flip directly to that input; if not, then flip through inputs or source until you find the correct one.
