Question: Can't mirror Macbook with Apple TV
I recently purchased an Apple TV 4th Gen and I am using a Macbook Pro Retina late 2013 running Mavericks OS X 10.9.5. I want to mirror my Macbook with Apple TV so that I have a much bigger screen to work with. When I select Apple TV from the Airplay Display option, the icon in the menu bar briefly goes blue then immediately goes black again without ever showing anything on the Apple TV. However, if I use iTunes on my Macbook, I can play videos from the through the Apple TV. I can get audio fine, either through iTunes or even just Safari. I just select Apple TV when I click on the speaker menu icon while holding the option key. But visuals just won't work. Can anyone suggest how I get mirroring to work please? My Apple TV is fully up to date with the latest software, as is my router. I had previously installed Reflector 2 but I have removed this and hunted down any residual files from it too. The Trash is empty and I have restarted Macbook, Apple TV, and router multiple times. For what it's worth, the audio occasionally cuts out, so I assume this is either wifi connectivity (2.4 Ghz, SNR~45 according to Wifi Diagnostics Utilities) or lack of processing power (2.4GHz Intel i5, 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3). Help much appreciated. My reason for buying the Apple TV was so I could do this type of mirroring without having to connect with a cable, so I am disappointed to say the least so far.
