However, apple TV only allows streaming and iTunes library sharing to the TV screen, not the use of the mac computer. Only what is in your library (movies, photos, music and other internet services like radio, youtube etc.
this is what it is designed to do, and only this.
Does anyone use their PC or mac projected on their TV using apple TV wirelessly?
the appletv does not do this. you were mis-informed if someone told you it could.
The apple sales person who sold it to me said that apple TV would facilitate it wirelessly without hardwiring it.
If the salesperson told you you could use the ATV as a remote desktop for your computer you were misinformed, in which case you should take it back for a refund if you don't need it for its actual purpose, which is primarily as a media player for iTunes and Netflix.
Otherwise, you can connect your MacBook Air directly to your TV with an appropriate A/V adapter cable.
