    Does the TV support AirPlay?

    With the proper cable you can output some video contenet to the TV

    iPhone, iPad, iPod: TV out support

     

    What you you really mean by "my tunes"

    For music, if the TV an an AUX audio inpute, you can purchase a cable that goes from the iPod's headohonbe jack to the AUX input of the TV.

    Also, a dock like this:

    Connect the Dock to a stereo or speakers using a stereo audio cable to play music from your iPod or iPhone.

    I have a Samsung Smart TV and love it! BUT... I HATE that it won't play my AAC files, and while it supports DLNA, DLNA does NOT support AAC. So, that kinda *****. Everything else I LOVE about the TV, except the incompatibility with my music. Means I can only play my MP3s on the bugger. And I have the highest bit rate AAC files -- which I am just NOT going to convert to MP3s.

     

    All however is not lost! For $99 add an Apple TV with Air Play, and stream your AAC files through the TV. And if you are using iTunes Match (which I am), you can plan all your music right from the cloud if you so choose. I was looking at a transcoding server -- but now why bother, when for $99 I can get everything I want.
