HT201343 Cannot Mirror MacBook Pro to Apple TV

I own a MacBook Pro Mid 2012 and a 3rd Generation Apple TV and both have the latest software updates. I can no longer see the AirPlay icon on my computer and I can no longer select that in the display options of settings. Any help on this one??

Hello there, tpeeler88.
The following Knowledge Base article offers up some basic steps for troubleshooting your issue:

Particularly of note:
Mac and Apple TV are on the same network, but no AirPlay Mirroring menu appears
Your Apple TV may be asleep. Simply press a button on your Apple TV remote to wake it up. After a few seconds, the AirPlay Mirroring menu extra will appear.
Make sure your Apple TV has the current software update installed.
Make sure you have the "Show mirroring options in the menu bar when available" checked.
There are also Additional Information links with additional troubleshooting recommendations.
Thanks for reaching out to Apple Support Communities.
Cheers,
Pedro.

  • Video lags like crazy when mirroring Macbook Pro to Apple TV

    So, the Apple TV is wireless, and youtube works fine, as long as i use it within the Apple Tv. However, when I mirror my Macbook Pro to the Apple TV, and play a youtube video or any other video on my computer, it lags; it lags a LOT!!!
    How do I fix this?
    I've heard about configuring the internet speeds from 5ghz to 2.4ghz. Will this work? and if so, HOW to I configure these settings on my Macbook or Apple TV?
    Please help! I got the Apple TV because we got rid of Foxtel, and I've got some movies on my hard drive, and TV shows, and I'd like to watch them, but the lag makes the movies and tv shows unwatchable!!
    Please help!
    Thanks in advance

    Switching between 2.4 & 5 GHz may bring mixed blessings. 5 GHz will likely avoid most interference but being a higher frequency is more easily blocked by walls and other objects 2.4 GHz is able to pass straight through. It therefore depends on your location which frequency would be best for you.
    Switching would be carried out in your router settings (assuming it supports both frequencies).
    Intermittent problems are often a result of interference. Interference can be caused by other networks in the neighbourhood or from household electrical items.
    You can download and install iStumbler (NetStumbler for windows users) to help you see which channels are used by neighbouring networks so that you can avoid them, but iStumbler will not see household items.
    Refer to your router manual for instructions on changing your wifi channel or adjusting your multicast rate.
    There are other types of problems that can affect networks, but this is by far the most common, hence worth mentioning first. Networks that have inherent issues can be seen to work differently with different versions of the same software. You might also try moving the Apple TV away from other electrical equipment.

  • Can i mirror macbook pro to Apple TV with lid shut?

    I've just bought apple tv and would like to use on an external tv which has apple tv running, however it seems i can only show the display on both machines, i would like to just use the tv and close the lid on the macbook, without it sleeping!
    Is this possible?
    Thanks

    Hello 1moresolo,
    One suggestion I would give you is to try pressing the key combination Control-Shift-Eject. This should turn off your MacBook Pro's display. Otherwise, try using the screen brightness keys to bring it all the way down.
    On my MacBook Air, turning the brightness all the way down turns off the display.
    Best of luck!

  • Airplay mirroring between my MacBook Pro and Apple TV (1080p one) has always worked fine until now. I only sometimes get video but usually just audio. Has anyone experienced the same issue?

    When using Airplay mirroring between macbook pro and apple tv I cannot see video, only hear the audio. Worked fine before. Any suggestions on what the problem could be?

    I have the exact same problem. The picture is very slow, incredibly pixelated... and renders my apple tv virtually useless until this problem gets resolved. I currently have an apple tv 3, ipad retina, iphone 4s, and a 2011 macbook air. I use the apple tv almost exclusively for mirrored content. And this is definitely causing quite a problem for me.
    I had been able to use this for presentations as well- but until this problem gets resolved - I may have to look for a backup solution/product. And I imagine that I'm not alone in this... Please get this resolved quickly!

  • I can't play a DVD from my superdrive via my macbook pro to apple TV via airplay.

    I can't play a DVD from my superdrive via my macbook pro to apple TV via airplay.  The movie plays fine on the macbook if I'm not trying to airplay.  The airplay works fine if I'm not trying to play a movie from the superdrive.  I think my apple TV is Gen 2.

    If you get a checkerboard pattern it's because Apple block Airplay Mirroring of protected media.
    VLC Player may work.

  • Mirroring MacBook Pro?

    I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to mirror a MacBook Pro to Apple TV in the same way an iPad or iPod does?
    I was able to find and use, as a trial, an app called AirParrot but it costs $9.99. It really is a great idea but I can't help to wonder why Apple has not already integrated this concept. I have a presentation that looks so much better on a 53 inch display rather than my 13 inch MacBook Pro.

    Unfortunately, only the newer models can support it.

    How old is your MBP (year and season)?
     > About This Mac > More Info...
    Apple TV is supported on a early 2011 or newer MacBook Pros with OS X Lion v10.7.5 or later.  If your MBP is older than that then you can use AirParot to connect to Apple TV.

  • How do I synch my iPhone5, MacBook Pro and Apple TV so that my iTunes downloads appear automatically on all three devices?

    How do I synch my iPhone5, MacBook Pro and Apple TV so that my iTunes downloads appear automatically on all three devices?

    Let me see if I've gotten this right! You want to remove an account from BOTH machines? Do this for your new machine first, then for the other.
    Click the Apple logo on the top left of the screen, System Preferences, Users and Groups (under Systems), unlock the lock in the window if its locked (you need to know the password), select the user that you wish to remove, and click the - sign next to the + sign for Login options. A window will pop up with some options. Select Delete this user and securely, and click 'Delete user'.
    After this, do an update from the App Store.
    Thats all there is to it.
    For the other machine repeat the process except for one thing. Before you delete the user in this case YOU, you will have to give Administrator priviledges to your son bu checking the box 'Allow user to administer this computer'.
    Do NOT do anything from Finder ... if you dont know how to fix the consequences of the problems caused.
    There is no need to unauthorize your iTunes account on your new machine. Do it on the old machine though.

    Typically your Mac gets registered automaticlly when you set it up as a new machine.
    check warranty https://selfsolve.apple.com/agreementWarrantyDynamic.do

    If your mac is not listed in the devices than you can add it.
