Showing different things on different TVs
If you've linked multiple TVs to Taplist.io, you can easily configure them to show different things.
What happens by default
By default, when you link a new TV, it is automatically configured to show all of your taps. This default applies every time you link a new TV.
For some folks, this default is ideal because they want to show the same list in multiple areas or rooms. However, you can easily change the default.
How to change the defaults
Let's say you have 8 taps and 2 TVs. You want to show the first 6 items on TV1, and the final two on TV2. Here are the steps to take:
- First, link both TVs to your account if you haven't already. They should both show up as Online in the Displays dashboard.
- Find the first TV in the Displays dashboard and click on it. You will be taken to settings for that display.
- On the settings page, scroll down to Taps. This is a multiple-choice select field that allows you to select one or more taps to show on that TV. Make your selections, then click Save.
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the second TV.
Your TVs will automatically reload to show your changes.
Important considerations when changing defaults
When you configure a TV with non-default settings, please keep in mind that all taps will no longer automatically show up on that TV.
Because of this, if you later add additional Taps to your location, you will need to manually add them to the TV(s) they should display on.
