How do you enable this function? I didn't see it mentioned in the manual.
Thanks in advance.

    Just connect the monitor and start the slideshow. Should just work.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Can you please be more specific? I'm not too clear about this function. Since it's listed as a feature on the iOS client, I'm assuming I can via wi-fi "transmit" the slideshow on my iPod to an external monitor. Or are you talking about connecting a monitor to my Mac when I'm running the desktop client?
    Thanks in advance for clarifying.

    You have to connect a monitor via Apple's special USB-to-DVI or USB-to-VGA adaptor. You connect the cable to the iOS device dock connector, and then you can view slideshows on the external monitor.
    It is the same for all iOS apps that support this, including Apple's Keynote app. It is really for using an external projector more than a monitor, but it should work for either.
