i have a problem which i can't solve.

My MacBook Pro Retina 15'' was able to use the airplay video mirroring on the AppleTV 3 without problems.

Some days ago, i saw, that the icon was not longer available in the menu bar.

The system settings just shows "No device found".


I can use the AppleTV for audio streaming without problems.

I tried another AppleTV (also with latest software) and it doesn't work, too.


So it seems to be a problem wirth my MacBook.

Is there any settings file, system component or other file, i should check (or maybe delete)?


I took a look into the system console and found the following entries regarding "airplay"

You can see, that i started audio airplay from iTunes, but there are two lines that may show some problem.


Does anybody have a hint?

    I am experiencing the same problem on a MacBook Pro 13 inch Mid 2012 edition (non-retina). My other Apple devices (iPad and iPhone) work without a problem.

    A few days ago I eventually did a PRAM reset on my MacBookPro 13 inch (the mid 2012 model). I followed the instructions at: After the reset, AirPlay mirroring from my MacBookPro works fine.


    In the past, I also had issues with my Mac not correctly detecting external displays. The PRAM reset also fixed those.


    I hope this works for you.

    Please report that to Apple via Feedback/Bug report.  Thanks.

    I have had this problem too. I read a solution that suggested going into the device you want to Airplay and change the language settings to another language, eg from English to French, allow the device to update, then change it back to English, it works a treat,  not sure why, but it does.
