I have a 2011 Mac, and the selection in the display preferences allows me to select 'show icon in menu bar when mirror is available' (this indicates my mac is compatible).

Itunes can share with apple tv (this indicates its on the same network)


I updated to os x mavericks which should allow me to share my mac screen with my hdmi tv via apple tv.


Problem: The mirror share icon does NOT appear in the menu bar.

I have restarted my mac

i have restarted the apple tv

I disconnected my ipad from apple tv (by disconnecting the ipad wireless connection)


Any suggestions on how to get my mac working on my tv?


thanks in advance.
