Updated: Sep 16, 2021

Looking to play videos or slideshows from your iPhone with your group? Follow the steps below!


- Get the "HDMI to iPhone Lightning Plug" from the basket under the TV in the basement

- Replace an existing HDMI plug on the back of the TV with the iPhone. In the photo below, I plugged the HDMI part of the cord into HDMI1. The standard setup is:

  • HDMI1: Nintendo Wii U

  • HDMI2: DVD Player

  • HDMI3: Nintendo Switch Dock

- Turn the TV to the correct source, depending on which plug you used. To switch the TV:

  • Press and hold the microphone button on the remote control

  • Say "HDMI1" (or whichever plug you're using) and release the microphone button

- Plug the Lightning Plug into your iPhone. You will see the following on the TV:
