    Thanks Ziv, I had seen your answer above, I was trying to hear from Patricia1545 as she and I am in the same boat. Looks like I need a wireless portable router for AirPlay, my iPad and an Apple TV 2, from what I've figured out in the last hour.

    Hi,

     

    You can also use an iPhone if you have one and configure it as a hot spot.

    Sorry, not been on for awhile.

    No, I didn't figure it out.  Although I went to Apple to talk to the Geniuses.  The problem is that every TV connection is different. So, traveling I would have to bring different wires to attach to my computer and their TV. The other thing with wires is the length.  If the office doesn't have a counter close by what's going to hold the computer-I-Pad.

    SOme customer stated that she travels all over the world and does everything on someone else's TV.  I am told that they have to have I-Tunes and other programs on their computer.  That won't work for me.

    I have a great travel friendly projector (casio) so I am going to stay with that.

    I am told soon every TV will have HD and they will all have the same connections -universal- and they will have internet to wirelessly connect.  Can't wait.

    Good luck

    If you want to airplay from your mac to your apple tv for programs such as Keynote, I beleive that you need to get something similar to AirParrot.

    Plug the Apple TV into the TV via HDMI and run your presentation via AirParrot. There is a cable available from Kanex (got mine through Mac1) that coverts the HDMI output from the Apple TV to standard VGA and audio if the TV is too old for HDMI.

    Yes you can do keynote presentation on airplay.

    Just activate the mirroring function on your device iPad or iPhone.

    I set up the apple tv in the classroom today and tried running a keynote presentation from my iPad.

     

    It starts out great using mirroring, but it just kept timing out, and going back to the apple tv menu.    Very frustrating.

     

    I tried turning off the screen saver but it did not help.    Anyone have any ideas please.

     

    Thanks
