HTC Connect Quick Guide: 2 steps only
(1) Two options: Output button in HTC Music application, or a simple 3-finger swipe up within any streaming audio or video application.
(2) Media output menu pops up so you can choose any available output consumer electronics device (using DLNA, Bluetooth or Miracast).
If just a 3-finger swipe up and ignore the media output menu that pops up, then you will connect to the previously chosen output consumer electronic device, HTC advises.
