I've got an old Mac Pro that we use as our media centre (watch netfix, dvds that I've ripped, home movies etc). It's old and noisy so I bought a raspberry pi B+ and would like to move the mac into a closet. I'd like to stick the raspberry pi on the back of the tv and wirelessly connect to my mac. I want to mirror my macs screen on the tv using the rpi.
I have itapvnc on my mac and I've allowed screen sharing on my mac. I've installed ssvnc on my rpi. My goal is to have the rpi start up and automatically share the macs screen but I'll settle for just seeing the screen right now.
I'm not afraid of using the command line but in all honesty I just follow the recipes and cut and paste. I'm learning as I go along.
Can a guiding hand point me in the right direction?
BTW most of the postings about vncs and mirroring are about how to mirror the rpi, I'm trying to do the opposite.
