Do you have iTunes open on your MacBook and Home Sharing turned on? http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4620
If you attempting to use AirPlay Mirroring you need 10.8 Moutain Lion first.

Check out the following requirements and see if you meet all of them:
Requirements for AirPlay Mirroring in OS X Mountain Lion:
An Apple TV
- Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software update v5.0 or later. See How to update Apple TV software.

Ahhh, I see, so my computer supports it, but my operating system needs to be updated since I am only at 10.7.5.
Thanks for the help, this makes sense.
