ProPresenter 6 Tutorial: How to use the stage2 app on an AppleTV with ProPresenter

If you need to add a stage display, but can’t get a cable to it, or want a different layout from the one that the wired connection has, you can use the Stage2 app on AppleTV.

So, how do you do it? It’s actually pretty simple.

First, you install your AppleTV (4th gen or later, like this one). Next, you’ll need to go to the App store and search for the Stage2 app (here’s the direct link).

Once it’s installed, make sure your AppleTV and the ProPresenter machine are on the same network and can see each other. Start ProPresenter first and make sure it’s set to send the stage display information over the network. Then start the Stage2 app.

It should pop up. You’ll need to enter the password you assigned in ProPresenter preferences and then then you can use it.

A couple of tips. The app can follow what Pro6 does with the stage display layout or use its own. Pick whichever you prefer.

Also, if you have trouble, make sure that the AppleTV didn’t lose its network connection. A hard-wired connection is better than wifi for this.
