I have an early 2011 MBP and a 3rd generation apple tv and have the latest versions of software yet i still cannot see the airplay icon. everything is enabled. Please help
Check the ATV and MBP are on the same network, a simple first check.
Yep they are.
OK, have you rebooted the router, again that has been the problem a couple of times for me.
just tried and nothing still. i restarting my comp also.
Final check I can think of, they are both on the same apple ID right?
It may be a network issue, mine occasionally disapears but to not get it at all is odd.
Yea they are on the same. Thanks Jules. I will keep trying and hope to have success soon.
Thanks mate, hope it works!
Did you manage to find a solution to this? I find myself with the exact same problem.
Do you have Mountain Lion OS X 10.8 installed?
Thanks for the help, I'm on Lion and am keen to upgrade but unfortunately I had a piece of music hardware that I don't think is compatible with mountain lion (Mackie Onyx Blackbird).
I've email their tech support so hopefully they come back to me with some more info.
If you want to mirror and not upgrade to ML look at some third party apps such as airparrot, beamer and reflectorapp which may suit you and work with Lion.
