I have an iPod Touch 3rd gen, running on 4.2.1 I have speakers hooked up to my AirPort Express...I know they work with AirPlay, since I can use Airplay on my iPhone 4 and my iMac and MacBook Pro....I used to be able to do the same with my ipod, not anymore. Neither from the music App nor other Apps that have that function. This happened after I got a service replacement for the iPod...don't think that could be the cause, but it's the only thing that has changed. Any help would be apprecited

The iPod does not mirror:

Does your model Mac support AirPlay Mirroring:
AirPlay Mirroring in OS X Mountain Lion takes advantage of the hardware video encoding capabilities of 2nd and 3rd Generation Intel Core processors. Hardware video encoding allows AirPlay Mirroring to efficiently deliver high frame rates while maintaining optimal system performance. The following Mac models have processors that support AirPlay Mirroring:
- iMac (Mid 2011 or newer)
- Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer)
- MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer)
