Hello there!

For the rainy days I like to watch movies at my camping trailer. It came with the TV but I don’t think it’s a 4K TV. I took up my Apple TV 4K (not the new one).
There’s no Wi-Fi set up, but it was obviously set up at home. So I tried sending content to it via airplay on BT

But I received this message. I’m pretty sure it’s because my TV is not 4K?

What content in particular? Some content is restricted from being played back via Airplay... so a DRM thing might be at play. If the content is in a format that your device doesn't support, ditto.

Doesn't AirPlay need either bluetooth or wifi? Does your built-in TV have an HDMI input?

Thanks. I think that might be it.
I tried playing ‘A tomorrow war’ on prime and some shows from Netflix and Crave.

Yes airplay needs Bluetooth. I just need Wi-Fi to set up the Apple TV which I did.

When I mirror from my phone, everything shows up. Just the content wouldn’t play.

The TV does have HDMI.
