You can show an external device, which is connected to your screen, in any zone using the source input widget. External devices such as a freeview box or Apple TV, once connected to a source input on your screen, can be displayed within your layout.

Add to Layout

Select your designated zone and enter the zones playlist by double clicking on the zone, or click 'Edit Zone Playlist'. Click 'Widget' and select 'Source input' to insert the source input widget.

Configure Settings

Once the widget has been added to your zone you will be able to configure its settings. This can be done by selecting them from the playlist items summary or from the options on the right hand side once the pencil icon has been clicked.
