watching Virgin TV through Projector

Hi,

I've connected my iphone (8 version 14.1) to my projector using a HDMI/Lighting connection.  However, when I try to watch the virgin TV app, I get a message saying 'we are not allowed to stream video through HDMI'.   Is there any work around for this as I'd like to stream TV in my garden.   Note - the sound comes through to the projector speakers.

Many thanks

Neil.

Hello

I am afraid that the app will only allow streaming to the primary screen on a mobile phone, there is no work around for this.

Many thanks for the response.   Disappointing that you can't project it.    Virgin, perhaps you should look into this?

Re: watching Virgin TV through Projector

Hi,

That's not strictly true. I got an apple lightning digital AV adaptor to connect my iphone to a TV that i don't have a Virgin box for and it then allowed me to stream onto it so long as my phone was using the same wifi as the box that the recording or live stream is coming from. It can be a bit of a faff but does work
