I have a "late 2011 MacBook Pro" since june, 2012; of course actualized since some days ago with Mountain Lyon... and I also have my apple TV 5.0.2 actualized and started, in the same wifi network.


All is correct but it's impossible... I can`t see AirPlay icon on my menu bar or screen monitor window so... how can I do/repare it!?

MacBook Pro

    Hello Vazandrew,

    Thanks for your answer. Yes, I already cheked both links before post yesterday.

    I have "MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2011)" and I verified info about Airplay. I have a correct MacBook but it behaves like an old one

    I know my Apple TV runs well since I use it with an iPhone 4S and iPad, but I can't run Airplay from the MacBook.

    I was waiting for Lyon Mountain and got a remote control compatible with both (Apple TV and Mac Book) waiting to use this new feature but right now I'm a little frustating.

    Thanks again for your help.

    If you've verified your model is compatible, ATV is up to date and Mountaion Lion is installed and you can't mirror then I suggest you take the unit in to see where the issue lies on your system

    Hi alEjitus,


    I have the same issue.  Did you ever figure out what the problem connecting to airplay was?

    I am having this issue as well. I have made an appointment with the apple store. According to the apple support page: "Note: If you don't see AirPlay Mirroring in Display Preferences, then your Mac model does not support it." This is contradicting because the page also says if you have a Macbook Pro Late 2011 model, your model does support it. This might be a manufacturing issue, or something else. I will find out and repost when I get an answer.
