How to switch slideshows on a TV

If you would like to show another slideshow on a TV than the slideshow that is currently showing, you can deactivate the TV showing the slideshow, and activate it again with another slideshow.

This is done by doing the following:

  • Login to Plecto using the login of the employee that has activated the TV.
  • Go to your profile by clicking on the name of the logged in user in the bottom left corner.
  • Click "x" on the TV you would like to deactivate and use for another slideshow.

  • Go to tv.plecto.com and activate the TV with another slideshow as explained above.

Devices:

We recommend using a modern and updated browser, e.g. Google Chrome or Safari, when viewing slideshows on a PC or when casting a slideshow to a TV.

We have tried different TVs, and the absolute best that displays the notifications without any issues is a LG 49UH610V. We've found that the native browser in LG TVs work the best.

Generally, we recommend newer LG models with minimum webOS 3.5.
