What does Mirror for LG Smart TV do? Application to mirror the screen of your Mac to any LG Smart TV. No wires and no additional hardware needed! You can also stream individual video files from your Mac to your TV. Also, we included the option to watch one window on your Mac, and another window on your TV!
This works on any LG Smart TV from the 2012 models onwards. And the LG Home Theater System.
In using the app, there will be about 2 to 3 seconds of latency. So this mirroring is not suitable for gaming.
However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, watching photos, and much more!
The quality of your experience will be dependent on the quality of your local network. Some tips to enhance the experience:
- Preferably, connect your TV by LAN cable to your router.
- Use an "ac" router. If you don't have one, then an "n" router.
- Try not to overload your wifi network by moving big files around while you are mirroring.
How the app works:
First, make sure that your LG TV is on the same local network and same subnet as your Mac. The TV should not be in screen mirroring mode, but just on "TV" Mode or any HDMI IN port.
After launching the app, you will see the app icon appearing in the top bar of your Mac and the app will look for your TV on the network. It will show your TV when it has found it. Now, you have two options:
Mirror your Mac Screen:
Use this option to put the screen of your Mac on TV. In source, you can select which screen (or attached monitor) you want to display on TV. If you are running multiple applications on your Mac, you can also select which application window you want to see on TV.
Enable Sound: check this to hear the sound of your Mac coming from the TV. You will need the additional (free) audio driver, which you can download here: http://bit.ly/MirrorAudio
Play Video File:
Use this option if you have a video file on your Mac and you want to play just the file on TV. Drop it in the box and it will play on TV.
Settings (the icon in the bottom right of the app): click here to request support from our 24/7 support staff. They usually respond within 2 hours on any query that you might have. If your question is technical, please also include the diagnostics information.
Limitations: Apple has HDCP DRM protection for playing iTunes movies. This means that screen mirroring is not possible when watching movies from iTunes.
When you like the app, please don't forget to give it a positive rating! Thanks in advance from the AirBeamTV development team!

It works decently
I've been using it every day for about a week. For the most part, it works well. Occasionally I see a lag. Its funny to listen to a video from my Mac but the video on the tv doesn't synch up to the audio. I rebooted my computer and made sure that both the tv and the Mac were using the same router. I'm out of ideas on how to make this better. I mostly use this product to practice yoga so I'm not as concerned about the lag, but if I were really trying to watch something, I think the lag would bug me. I wish I understood the inconsistency part of the lag. I don't have a lot of bandwidth used in the house so I'm sure where to troubleshoot further.
Should not be paid for
Unfortunately I thought having a only 1 year old LG tv as well as a new mac book pro would resolve some of the issues mentioned in the other reviews like the developers mentioned. This was not the case. The latency is way too large to be able to mirror your screen for viewing video content, especially if you were hoping to extend your display like I was. I usually don't post reviews, but seeing as this app is $10, which I think should be refunded since it doesn't function in a usable state, I thought I would post this. This app is definitely not ready for production use especially for the price listed. The latency started off at about 8-10 seconds and just grew from there. My router is in the same room I am connecting over wifi too. It is very much a problem with the app.
Do not waste your money on this app.
Sure it connects to the television just fine. But then the lag hits, right away (not even kidding, right off the bat), and then every 5 miuntes or so afterward. And while the app tries to figure out why it is so terrible, the video you are watching continues on your computer. So, when the app actually decides to work for a little bit, the video jumps to where it should be on the television, leaving you clueless as to what transpired during that time. So then you rewind the video on the computer, which completely baffles the app, so then it has to stop completely, to think about to do. But, again, the video on the computer continues on.
I have attempted to use this app in several locations, with various internet speeds, or bandwiths, or whatever technical jargon the developer will use in attempt to excuse it's inferior product. The app is the problem.
So, if you like frustration, and flushing money down the toilet. This is the app for you. But, if you want a product that actually does what it advertises, you should take the 10 dollars you would spend on this terrible technology, and buy an HDMI cord, or an ice cream cone. Just something that makes you happy.
Not useful for work or game
The delay is too long, you will only see your actions on the screen several seconds later. Not ideal for display.
