Application to reflect the screen and audio from your Mac to an Amazon Fire TV. You can also transmit individual video files from your Mac to your TV. We also include the option to view a window on your Mac and one on your TV.
Before using this application, go to the Amazon website and install the receiver mirror (free) for Fire TV: http://bit.ly/FireReceiver
By using the app, there will be about 2 to 3 seconds delay ( gap). So this reflection is not suitable for games.
However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, view photos and much more!
The quality of your experience depends on the quality of your local network. Some tips to enhance the experience:
1. Restart your router. Just unplug it , wait 10 seconds and reconnect. This reboot your router and make your home network faster and more stable. Why does this work? Routers are essentially small computers with software. The software will have small memory leaks and some processes stop functioning correctly over time. So it’s a good idea to restart your router occasionally. Our recommendation: once a week.
2. Do not do hard work to reflect the network screen. As explained, the mirror screen is intense for the network. For best performance, do other network intensive work simultaneously. That includes making backups of the machine on the network and upload / download large files from the Internet while reflex screen.
3. Put your Mac and your Fire TV channel on the same router. Some routers (dual band) have both a 2.4Ghz wireless network as a 5Ghz. For best performance, set your Mac and your Fire TV on the same network. Preferably 5GHz network. But definitely not the Mac in 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz TV on because that will negatively impact the performance reflex screen.
4. Use an AC or N. The newer routers support Wifi router Routers AC and N. older may only have Wifi B and / or G. B and G are not tailored for modern networking tasks, so go for AC router or N. If your router supports N AC and also ensures your router is configured to use either interconnection or Wifi wireless N AC.
