NOWTV & Projector- TECH SUPPORT

Hello There

 

A simple query.... I have an Epson Projector that I use to watch Films outdoors ( no WIFI outside), I recently downloaded a film via the NOW TV APP (using an IPAD).... but it won't let me play it on the projector... Netflix and Amazon Prime work fine...... What do I have to do to make it work...?

 

Cheers

It looks like a laptop instead of the iPad would fit the bill if you have a laptop with HDMI out.

 

My Epson projector runs over WiFi from its sender box, so I have never tried anything like you are attempting.

 

But if the Epson is running over the household mains, then you can get WiFi out there by using a pair of PLAs where the remote has a WiFi hotspot on it, and then you can relay anything you can connect to the sender.

 

Though this will not, alas, include the output of an iPad, as fas as I know.

Re: NOWTV & Projector- TECH SUPPORT

@Cortes how are you connecting the iPad to the projector. HDMI?

 

NowTV won't allow you to connect an iPad via hdmi to another device as it assumes you're trying to share/publicly broadcast their content and it prevents people who have bought a 'mobile only' subscription to NowTV from connecting the mobile phone to a larger screen.

 

The only option is to connect a Chromecast to the projector and cast from the iPad.
