How can I mirror my Mac on my TV via Apple TV?

I have upgrade to Mountain Lion and i'm unable to miroe my mac on my apple tv? I am unable to see the option.

Which Mac have you got?
You need to be running a compatible (pretty new) Mac as has been detailed on the Mountain Lion tech spec page (http://www.apple.com/osx/specs/) for some months.
AirPlay Mirroring
Requires a second-generation Apple TV or later. Supports the following Mac models:
iMac (Mid 2011 or newer)
Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer)
MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer)
MacBook Pro (Early 2011 or newer)

    PS: did ask the same question to apple hotline in germany. Answer: we don´t know... funny

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    As far as I know you can't, which sort of makes sense, it seems logical to pause whatever you are doing while you take a phone call, which after all is the primary function of a phone.

  • How can I mirror my Mac Book Pro to my TV using Apple TV 3

    Is it possible to mirror my Mac Book Pro running Lion to my HD TV which is connected to Apple TV 3?

    No, you cannot do this with Lion OS X.
    Reportedly the mirroring feature has been demo-ed with the next operating system Mountain Lion, however as yet we do not know if there will be any hardware restrictions to this feature.

  • How can i mirror my mac book pro with apple tv

    I need to know how to mirror my macbook pro with my apple tv so I can watch youtube and use my browser on my tv. So what I can see on my computer I want to see on tv. Is there a program I need or should it do it by it's self?

    If you have Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8.*), then just select AirPlay from the menu along the top of your desktop, and your computer screen should appear on a tv attached to your Apple TV.

  • How can I move my .mac e-mail to main apple id?

    I have a Main apple ID that i've always used for itunes and app store purchases, but I had a mobile me account that upgraded to iCloud.
    I want to consolidate it to one ID and keep my email address. I know Apple say you can have one ID for iCloud and another for itunes/ app store, but at some point down the line its going to cause problems. I know you cant merge id's but i just want to keep my email address?
    any ideas? anyone?

    Mhh that is very difficult to say, sure it is a lot easier if yo only have one Apple ID for all iCloud Services (Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, ...) + App and other Store purchases like music, tv shows etc., but if you already bought a lot of stuff or even everything with one ID, I personally would keep that ID for iTunes and other Store purchases and would use an other ID for iClouds services like Mail, Calendars, Photo Stream etc.
    By the way, it is not possible to create a new mac.com email address. At the moment you only have the ability to create a me.com address. (For a new account go to "Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Add Account, iCloud" choose the option "get a free me.com email address" during the set up process.)

  • HT201343 Can I mirror my Mac although it's an old version?

    We can only mirror our Mac with through AirPlay onto Apple TV if the Macbook Pro is a 2011 version or earlier. My macBook Pro is a mid-2009.
    Has anyone found a way to get around this limitation? I don't want to have to buy a new Mac! Thank you.

    Thank you for the quick response. One more question: I'm trying it out but when I try playing a movie, the audio works but the movie image comes out in squares. Is that because I'm trying it for free and will only see the image if I purchase the app? I want to make sure it works properly before I buy the app.
    Thanks for your help.

  • HT201335 can I mirror my mac to the apple tv?

    Only if you have one of the following Macs:
    iMac (Mid 2011 or newer)
    Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer)
    MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer)
    MacBook Pro (Early 2011 or newer)
    AND you need to purchase and install Mountain Lion from the Mac App Store.
    Wow...that's upsetting ;-(  My late 2009 iMac is great.  Starting to wonder why I updated to Mountain Lion...

  • TS2530 When I put a burned cd from one Mac into another Mac, song titles do not show up! I have to enter them manually! My CD player reads the titles that i on the cd; how can I get my Mac to do so?

    When I put a burned cd from one Mac into another Mac, song titles do not show up! I have to enter them manually! My CD player reads the titles that i on the cd; how can I get my Mac to do so?

    The problem is that I burned these CD's myself from music that I added from my personal collection to iTunes. The INFO is ON the CD's (it appears perfectly when I put the CD in my Numark mixer...so I know the info is on the CD), but for some reason, my MAC PRO will NOT read the info on the burned CD when I place the CD into the MAC PRO. The CD was burned on a MAC that I no longer own. But there HAS to be a way to transfer songs from a burned CD with the INFO that is on the CD burned with iTunes.
    PLEASE HELP!

  • How can I connect my Mac Book Pro (year 2008) to the TV set through  HDMI? I've seen a DVI to HDMI iwire but I'm no sure that it is correct. Could anyone help me? Thank you very much.

    How can I connect my Mac Book Pro (year 2008) to the TV set through  HDMI? I've seen a DVI to HDMI iwire but I'm no sure that it is correct. Could anyone help me? Thank you very much.

    I do not know the iWire adapter, but I use an inexpensive ($3) DVI to HDMI adapter from Monoprice, along with a regular HDMI cable:

    Be aware that this will only transfer video. You Macbook Pro cannot combine audio through DVI to HDMI. You will need to listen to the audio through the Mac speakers, or attach speakers or a sound system to the Mac earphone jack, or determine if your TV has the ability to accept external sound from the Mac while showing video through HDMI (few can).

    Do you have a home network?
    Personal File Sharing: You can connect Macs on a local network with Tiger’s Personal File Sharing, which allows you to mount folders from the sharing Mac on the master Mac—note that the slave Macs do the sharing; the master Mac doesn’t have to. To turn on Personal File Sharing on the slave Mac, do this:
    Open System Preferences.
    In the System Preferences window, click Sharing.
    In the Sharing pane, click Services.
    In the Select a Service to Change Its Settings list, select the Personal File Sharing checkbox.
    Now that the slave Mac has sharing turned on, you can mount it on the master Mac’s Desktop:
    In the Finder, choose Go -> Network.
    In the Network window, select the sharing Mac.
    Click Connect.
    In the Connect to Server window, click Registered User, enter the user account name and password for the sharing Mac, and then click Connect.
    In the window that appears, select the volume that contains the folder you want to sync with, and then click OK.

  • How can I share my mac book pro with my mac pro.

  • How can i get my mac book pro to recognize a JVC camcorder?

    How can I get my mac book pro to recognize a JVC camcorder using a Sony CAMERA USB cord??

    Gotta say thank you — again.  Sorry the posts were spread out over more than one location.    I'll check and see if Third Party Software is considered a "peripheral", maybe that would have been a better single thread choice?
    Definitely news we can use and the reference link is appreciated.
    OT ~ We keep becoming more and more aware of how easy it is to lose one's bearings when it comes to keeping up with info tech.  My husband and I are both official members of the geezer set and have been out of the work force for some years.  You really do pick up so much just by being in the environment where people are using things to get work done.  A couple of old MP3 players, PPC G5, and a vintage Inspiron 3800 that someone didn't want any more is about it.  No cell phone, no iPod, no iPad, no home wireless network, no streaming media.  Fixed income.  So we do with what we can as long as we can.  If we could get by without that Intel processor, we'd probably make do with what we've got.  On the other hand, we've really wanted a notebook for a very long time and have to admit that needing to upgrade to accomodate my husband's project is pretty much just the "reason" we need.  I really mean it when I say that we are beyond appreciative that users take the time to share info and patiently educate those of us who fall into the "slow tech" category.
