FAQ

One famous TV show "IT Crowd", I like the answer from Roy who is the IT guy in that TV show. "Have you tried to turn it off and on again?". Reboot your router, your TV, your mac and make sure they are in the same network, and the connection is stable, trust me, it will help to fix most of the IT issue.
Check whether your TV support DLNA or Chromecast protocol, Or your are using Roku TV, if not, then give up. Otherwise check next item.
Check the other one airbeam which is our major competitors, but we respect them, they are as good as us, but they do not provide free trial version. So you can take the risk, it might also failed after you bought it. But trust me, only Oka Mirror and Airbeam are the best one.
Then I suggest you give up and bought a cable line to connect the mac with TV, it will work.
I have the confidence to say we are the best, this is depends on the router performance, if you can find the other good one, mail to support@7littlemen.com.

Q: Why the app doesn’t find my device that I want to stream to?

A: Please make sure that your receiving device (e.g. Samsung TV, LG TV, Chromecast, Roku TV, etc.) and Mac are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. If you have problems discovering your device, here are some troubleshooting tips that can help:

Click the left bottom icon on the app view, then choose Quit App. Relaunch app after you do all the steps below.

1. Restart your router. Just unplug it from the power supply, wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in.

2. Restart your device. Unplug it from the power supply for a full reboot. Please disconnect it from its power supply for at least 1 minute, then put it back in. Powering off your TV is NOT ENOUGH to do a full reboot.

3. Make sure that your Mac and the receiving device are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, same router, and the same router channel. Some routers (dual band) have both a 2.4Ghz and a 5Ghz wireless network. So it’s important not to have your Mac on 5Ghz and the receiving device on 2.4Ghz or the other way around.

4. Use an AC or N router.New routers support Wi-Fi AC&N,where as old ones might only support Wi-Fi B and/or G. Wi-Fi B & G are not really up to modern networking tasks, so please use an AC or N router.

5. In many cases the firewall on your computer may prevent the devices from communicating. Apple has provided instructions for allowing applications through the firewall. Consult the information here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1810

6. With antivirus products, such as Norton, you may have to follow a similar process. It’s essential as antivirus apps often have their own firewalls and network traffic blockers. It’s easier to fully disable these apps while testing for connection, then re-enable and make adjustments later.

7. The firewall on your router may prevent communication.Check out that your router is configured properly. Most home networks don’t need any special configuration, but sometimes you may need to change a setting or two on your router to allow media streaming on your network.

8. If you are using VPN, the device also could not be detected, please turn off VPN.

Q: Why is my Mac asking for access to the Microphone? Should I allow that?

your Mac will show a popup with the question to allow access to the Microphone. We are not actually using the microphone on your Mac, but we are taking the system audio of your Mac, to be sent to the TV. This is why you need to allow for Microphone access.

Go to System Preferences and select “Security & Privacy”.
