If the app has downloaded correctly to your laptop, you do not have to download anything to your TV. When you first use it a code number will appear on the TV, that you then

enter on your laptop. If this doesn't happen, it could be due to the fact that your are watching for instance, Sky on your TV via HDMI. The app will only work if your TV  is on "TV mode" i,e freeview, and not HDMI.

 

Note: it can take up to a couple of minutes to establish the connection.

Thanks for that,

 

Is the Error Message coming up on your Laptop or your TV? 

 

Are you using a Samsung Laptop?

 

For more information check out page 15 of the manual: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201612/20161216094622174/ENG-HMFDVBEUK-1.0.8.pdf

Connect your HDMI lead to both your TV and laptop (any order). Select the correct HDMI input on your TV. If your laptop does not automatically output its screen to the TV, go to Control Panel > Display > Adjust Resolution and select the TV in the Display drop-down box. If you need more help, I recommend visiting https://www.toshibasupportphonenumber.com/ this site.
