I have a mid2011 Macbook air fully updated with Mountain Lion and an AppleTV fully updated (5.1.1). When trying to mirror using Airplay I cannot see anything on my TV? I was able to hear audio playing a song through itunes. However that was the closest I was able to get it work. I have followed the other peoples advice with similar situation. What could be wrong?



Apple TV, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), I have a Macbook Air Version 10.8.2

    Hi Whitney


    Do you get the airplay icon near the clock on your mac or can you just airplay through itunes?  If you don't have that icon I think you have a network issue.


    As ever reboot router, ATV (take ALL cables out for 30 seconds) and MBA.  You have followed advice, confirm you have checked same network and apple ID with homesharing on (should be good though if you get music).


    Next check is that the cable and tv port are OK, do you have another BR device to play on the tv and another cable to try?


    First steps to try,
