The LES MILLS Virtual App will re-attempt to download your content overnight automatically.
This is usually caused by a mistake in scheduling, for example a BODYPUMP live class has been scheduled instead of a Virtual BODYPUMP class. Check your Virtual scheduler and confirm you have the following content:
1. Check the correct studio is selected - match the name on your iPad timetable with the studio name.
2. Check the 'incorrect class / timeslot' and confirm you have the right day and week.
3. Check the class type is correct, Live / Virtual.
4. Check the correct release is selected - click on the class and check Random / Latest / Specify.
5. Check the schedule has been sent to the iPad successfully - hover the mouse over the small icon to the right of the studio name. This will show you the status of the iPad (Storage + last seen online).
1. Click the padlock icon in the top right hand corner of the iPad.
2. Enter your 'Admin code' to unlock additional administrative features.
3. This will reveal a pause button on the bottom right of the iPad in the 'NOW ON' banner.
1. Check your display has power, is connected and switched on.
2. Check the correct source input is selected. Most displays (projectors, TVs) have input selection buttons either on the display, or on the remote. Check all inputs one at a time in case this has been changed. Note, a display can have multiple HDMI inputs.
3. Check the cables are all connected and nothing has been moved or bumped.
(e.g. the lights haven't dimmed, the screen hasn't come down)

The Virtual app is designed to play high definition video to an external display while still enabling the app to be used to view the timetable, browse upcoming classes or pause, stop and select the next class. This means videos do not play on the iPad screen. Instead, all video AND audio plays out the lightning to HDMI (Apple digital AV) adapter.
If you do not have an external display connected using an Apple digital AV adapter, an error will display on the iPad.
EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) is the information that the digital source (iPad) and the digital display uses to work correctly with each other. Put simply. EDID refers to the method the devices use to talk to each other.
An EDID device can stabilize the communication between a display and the iPad removing any 'power on/wake up' synchronization problems and ensuring: The external display always receives the correct resolution and input settings when it needs it The iPad always thinks the external display is switched on and is ready to reveive video
If you are experiencing regular problems with getting the iPad and external display initial connection, ask your local AV partner if an EDID is right for you
