  • Sony Blu-ray Player - Second unit in the equipment rack. Plays Blu-ray disks, DVDs, and CDs. Controlled by the buttons on its face. Power button is a small rectangular button on the upper-right hand of the player's face.

  5. Boot up your laptop COMPLETELY before connecting the VGA cable from the equipment rack. Then plug in the cable.

    • On a Mac, click the Apple icon > System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement > Mirror Displays.
