Help with mirroring lyrics only to an external display
« on: May 09, 2018, 05:14:47 PM »
Hey All,

I'm running SLM on an iPad Mini 2 and the external display is a 32" LCD TV @ 1920x1080 resolution. A Mac Mini running the AirServer app is driving the TV via HDMI. When I select Screen Mirroring on the iPad I can see it's screen on the TV.

I'm using the Split layout and have used an automation track to center and highlight the proper lyric lines as they occur via double-tap. When selecting the song, the lyrics appear on the TV at the top of the screen but when the first automation event happens they disappear off the bottom of the screen and eventually appear as the document scrolls through the lyrics. This appears to be because the double-tap event centers the line in the document and that position is not visible on the TV initially because of document orientation or resolution settings, not sure which. Also. the line is not highlighted on the TV as it is on the iPad.

Is there a walkthrough or video tutorial that covers this in depth?

Thanks!

Can you post some pictures showing the problem, and also a screen shot of your external display settings?

Hey Arlo,

Sorry for the delay.  I replaced the Mac Mini with an Apple TV so we've now taken that possible issue out of the equation. I think the scrolling is working now although the lyric highlighting is not. It shows the selected lines as highlighted on the iPad but not on the external display. Thoughts?

Had a chance to confirm the behavior I'm seeing? I updated to the latest version and am still experiencing it.

Thanks for a great update BTW!

Okay, check out app version 5.3.2 that was released today. That should show the line highlights on the external display:
