- We start the search and go to the TV configuration.
- We press “Settings” on the remote control, go to the “Network” section (as in the previous instructions). Here we enter the corresponding menu to activate the mode.

This method is distinguished by the absence of delays, “brakes” typical for wireless transmission over WI-FI. And the image quality is just perfect.
The setup procedure is outrageously simple:
