My Mac iTunes stopped being able to play to my Apple TV for some reason.  Apple TV shows all the menus, songs etc. but nothing works anymore.  using iTUNES 11.2 .   Also AIRPLAY does not work either.    Every thing seems to work ok on the Mac iTunes (plays normally) .   But on the AIRPLAY failing, I often get this rotating multicolored ball icon taking the place of my mouse pointer.   I have rebooted my WiFI, computer and the Apple TV to no avail.   However, itunes home sharing and airplay using my ASUS laptop both still work fine with Apple TV.  It is only my new Mac Pro that has stopped for some reason.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
