Using the Integrated Mac Mini:

The display acts as a giant touch panel for the Mac Mini, so you don't need to use a mouse and keyboard when you're presenting with it.

If you're sitting at the tables and would like to use a wireless mouse and keyboard with the Mac Mini, the library holds onto a set for you to borrow. A set of wireless peripherals cannot be left in LH 331 due to theft.

  1. To power on the display, either press power on the handheld black Sharp remote, or press the power button on the lower-left corner of the display's bezel. A green pilot light should appear in the lower right corner of the display.
  2. Make sure that the display is on the AV DVI-D input. To change inputs, use the input button on the remote control.
  3. Power on the Mac Mini. If you stand next to the right side of the display, the Mac Mini is mounted behind the top edge of the display. The power button is at the bottom edge of the Mac Mini.
  4. To switch between macOS and Windows...
    • From macOS to Windows: Click the Apple icon > System Preferences... > Startup Disk > Click the lock icon > When prompted for a password, click the Unlock button > Select BOOTCAMP Windows from the list > Click the Restart... button.
    • From Windows to macOS: Double click the Restart to macOS icon on the Desktop > When a User Account Control takes over the screen, click the Yes button > Select Mac OS X from the list > Click the Apply button > Click the Restart button > When a Boot Camp window pops up, click OK.
  5. When you're done with the TV, please turn it off. Hit the power button on the TV remote to turn it off.

 

Connecting Your Laptop using the HDMI Cable

  1. To power on the display, either press power on the handheld black Sharp remote, or press the power button on the lower-left corner of the display's bezel. A green pilot light should appear in the lower right corner of the display.
  2. Make sure that the display is on the PC HDMI input. To change inputs, use the input button on the remote control.
  3. Boot up your laptop COMPLETELY before connecting the HDMI cable hanging from the TV. Then plug in the cable.
    • If your computer requires you to use an adapter to project, first plug the cable into your adapter, then plug the adapter into your computer.
  4. Send the image to the TV:
    • On Windows computers, press and hold the Windows key and P key. Select the Duplicate to send the image to the projector.
    • On a Mac, click the Apple icon > System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement > Mirror Displays.
  5. Volume is controlled with the VOL + and VOL - buttons on the TV remote.
    • On Windows computers, right-click the Speaker icon in your taskbar and select Playback devices from the popup menu. In the window that pops up, if there isn't a check under the SHARP input, right-click on it, then select Set as Default Device.
    • On a Mac, click the Apple icon > System Preferences > Sound > Output tab > Select the SHARP option from the list.
  6. When you're done with the TV, please turn it off. Hit the power button on the TV remote to turn it off.

Connecting Your Laptop using the VGA Cable

  2. Make sure that the display is on the PC D-SUB input. To change inputs, use the input button on the remote control.
  3. Boot up your laptop COMPLETELY before connecting the VGA cable hanging from the TV. Then plug in the cable.
    • If your computer requires you to use an adapter to project, first plug the cable into your adapter, then plug the adapter into your computer.
  4. Send the image to the TV:
    • On Windows computers, press and hold the Windows key and P key. Select the Duplicate to send the image to the projector.
    • On a Mac, click the Apple icon > System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement > Mirror Displays.
