    Lightbulb Media Set Up for Home - Mac Mini & Apple TV using Samsung TV Monitors
    Hi everyone


    Here's what I have;

    MAC MINI set up in living room connected to a Samsung TV as a monitor (this is controlled by a magic keyboard and mouse)

    Here's what I'd like;

    The ability to use and control that MAC MINI from one or more of the bedrooms in the house (via other Samsung TV's as monitors)


    Is this at all possible? THANK YOU in advance for any help

    I don't believe it's possible using another Samsung monitor from your bedroom to contol the Mini which is in your living room. You can however, contol the Mini from your bedroom with either an iPhone or iPad and of course with another Mac. You can do some research on that if you wish and there is also software that you would need.

    Hi, I know you can't control it from the Samsung, I wanted to know what I would need to be able to control it from that bedroom, using a Samsung Tv as the monitor... what device could I use?

    If you want to see the Macs screen on another TV, the Mac is going to have to be physically connected to it the same as it is to the TV you're already using.
    If all you want to do is be able to watch/listen to the media (movies/music) that's on the Mac on a 2nd TV, an AppleTV connected to the 2nd TV is the easiest way "assuming" you have a wifi network set up in the house or are able to connect the ATV via ethernet.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
