How do I make AirPlay work. It looks as though it is enabled on Apple TV settings, though I have not set a password for it.


Apple TV

    Make sure you are on the same network, apple ID etc and home sharing is enabled.

     

    This may help more;

    Jules  -

     

    Thank you for your help.

     

    I have an Apple MacBook Air with the latest operating system, an HDTV, and an Apple TV purchased in NYC last April or May. Can I use airplay to watch on my television films or TV shows downloaded onto my MacBook Air online e.g. from BBC iPlayer Web?

    Richard,

     

    I think you would need Mirror to do that, I do it that way but I cannot say definately no to other methods, just I don't think so.

     

    For Mirror you need MacBook Air mid-2011 or later with OS X 10.8 (which you say you have).  If you Air is earlier check an app called air parrot.

     

    The down side is I get Eastenders in 55' and not 5 on my iPod!

     

    Cheers
