Isn't technology great...

on Fri Apr 20, 2018 12:05 am
So my Samsung TV has Bluetooth. My phone is also a Samsung and seems keen to connect to the TV.
The other morning I'm lying in bed, while Mrs Teeps is downstairs and I am looking at photos on my phone. While thumbing past a photo I accidentally connected to my TV. This made the programme that Mrs Teeps was watching disappear and the photo appear on the screen. Fortunately the photo was fine but I could so easily have been LKs Mrs. I'm not sure I like all this clever tech...

When you say, ".......while Mrs Teeps is downstairs" - is that a euphemism?!!

No pin but I did do something a while back when setting up the TV. It saw my phone and asked several questions so I may have linked them then without really understanding what I was doing.

It's called Smart View. Flick top of screen to find settings such as bluetooth, torch, etc. Scroll sideways (on mine anyway) and find Smart View. It "asks" TV to allow connection and if it doesn't get a "decline" prompt from TV command (controller) it does it automatically. Wife wanted Coronation Street, but for some reason the WiFi to the TV was shite, so connected to my phone, casted to TV and watched all the episodes she missed while we were in Cyprus... Oh what a night that wasn't Laughing

It basically allows the phone to take over the TV and it transmits the home screen to the TV screen so you can do all the phone stuff in glorious 49 inch (or whatever size screen you have). I download films to Show Box then cast to the TV. Can pause to make tea and all sorts Cool

Makes sense ... the depression, suicidal tendencies, the nightmares and screaming about getting crushed by a giant Scotch egg Smile

Clearly a lie as I would not only refuse to own such a vehicle, I would rather have it crushed than pass it on to someone else.

Half a car? Don't think so Wink
