Step 2: connect the cables

Next, you can connect the cables. For example, you can connect a gaming console or a Blue-ray player with HDMI cables. You can connect external devices to the HDMI connectors, like a digital decoder or Blu-ray player. With multiple HDMI connectors, you can connect multiple devices at the same time, so you don't have to keep switching cables.

Step 3: select the right WiFi network
