    "Handy Tool"

    May 7, 2012  |   By joshbear


    I was disappointed that the next version of OS X...the one that supports screen sharing on an Apple TV...would not run on my Macbook.

    I decided to Google this feature and found this application. It works as advertised. You do need to fiddle with the Preference to find what looks best on your TV. For example, unless your Mac already supports high definition, don't use the 1080p option. Depending on what your going to do with this, you will want to play with the over scanning to optimize what's displayed. For example, if you are using this to watch videos, you might want to turn it down so the menu bar is hidden.


    The sound does not switch back to the internal speakers if you quit the application without turning off the screen sharing first.

    Be warned, web video using screen sharing always looks a little jittery. In other words, what looks good on a 13 inch laptop sometimes does not look so hot on a 42 inch screen.
