I have ipad2 and am trying to connect it to the apple tv .... I clicked on the AirPlay icon ... I can only hear the sound from the tv but cannot see or mirror my iPad to the tv.

Note plz that when I click on the AirPlay icon, I don't see the "mirror" icon to enable.

Kindly advice

Regards

iPad 2

    Welcome to the Apple community.

     

    Are you certain that you are mirroring and not simply using basic airplay.

     

    When displaying the content you wish to mirror on the iPad 2, double tap the home button (quickly) and swipe the bottom row of apps to the right to reveal the playback controls, tap the AirPlay icon and select your Apple TV from the list of available devices.

    Then you may have an issue with your network. Mirroring requires real-time playback and doesn't buffer any content, this requires a fairly good network if it is to work.

    I'm afraid I don't know anything about your game or the chips that you mention. However as far as your network issues go, you might wish to restart your router, if it states you are not connected to the Internet, there is definitely a problem somewhere.
