Hi!
Now I have Soloslides on my iPhone.
Any way to have the slideshow appear on my LG TV?

Hi Noelok
Is your LG TV a Smart TV? What model is it?
If it is, it should appear in the cast list: when the slideshow has started on your ios device it is the rightmost button at the bottom

Hi - Thanks for quick response.
My TV is an LG - web OS TV - UJ634V - I believe it is a smart TV.
I can access web on it and it is connected by WiFi to my home network as well as to HDMI set top box.
When I start Soloslides, I can see the cast option button as described.
When I select that, I see that the APP has recognised my TV, and I select that.
But with slide show running, nothing appears on TV.
Is there a specific channel or function on TV I have to select to complete the operation?

Hi again,
I'm not familiar with LG TVs, but my guess is that somewhere your TV is waiting for you to give permission to Soloslides to play on it. I'd have a hunt through the menus of your TV after Soloslides has started playing to it, and see if there is something there. Alternatively it could be that your TV is going to show Soloslides' photos as a "Source" or "App" -- you might need to hunt around for this.

Hi,

Was there a solution to this? I bought Soloslides specifically to play Google Photos slideshows on my LG 55SK8500PLA TV but, although it shows the tv as a cast option and appears to think it’s casting, I can’t find a way to select it on the TV.

Very frustrating... please help.

Thanks.

Baz

Hi Baz
Sorry not yet. If you want to refund the app please use the “report a problem” link in the emailed receipt that Apple sends you. It can take a few days for the email to show up after purchase.

I also have a LGTV and it has DLNA and I have successfully used DLNA from my windows box and my NAS server.
However I cannt seems to make it work for Soloslides. I have installed the app successfully and it does show me my LGTV as in the box of where to send it. However on the DLNA app of my LGTV I dont see anyway to see the photos from soloslides. I see my regular 2 devices (Windows and NAS server) and it has refresh for devices and I have tried the refresh, I have tried restarting the app and no soloslide device appears. Is soloslide suppose to appear as a device on the DLNA client?

I also have VLC on my Windows box and the other DLNS devices do appear there.However the soloslide does not show this as a target device not does VLC show me the soloslide as a DLNA server.

Hi there,
No, it's not supposed to appear as a DLNA device: SoloSlides is not the server. Your TV is the server. Specifically, SoloSlides is looking for a media-renderer, which TVs usually advertise themselves to be. SoloSlides then automatically pushes the photos to the media renderer, which for example on my Samsung TV causes the photo to be shown in an image viewer...
