OT - Apple TV

Prev13
Kewl! We have a new smart TV being delivered tomorrow and I'm hoping I can do the same with my iPhone and Mac. No Apple TV required or we may have gotten it too.

So how does it look in real time? Is the resolution still nice and clear? Hard to tell on the photo you posted.

    I wasn't quite sure what Apple TV did so I just googled it, I must say it dose look good. Now all I have to do is justify buying it. I ran in to a problem the other day where I could not download a movie on iPad because I need to connect to wifi, I don't have wifi, dose Apple TV get around this problem?

    It's dark here so the pic is not clear the resolution is nice and clear. For 100$ i think it's worth it. Their is almost no lag so that make it more nice.

    That's what I do but only get sound. Maybe it's because I use my phone.

    Yeah I can listen to my music library through it and get my cover art but can't get Tsto to show. I may be doing something wrong but I've done movies and stuff.

    Hi everybody!
    I haven't read all the thread yet. :D You can also connect with wire to the internet.
    I love Apple Tv. I used also Roku, which is very similar. I ended up using only AT.
    I get movies on Itunes which is awesome. :P

    Did you go airplay, and there clicked apple tv on your phone or ipad?

    Edit - I think what you need is to turn on mirroring.

    Have you turned on mirroring? :P

    I think without mirroring you don't get games.

    Yeah my bar at the bottom doesn't look the same. Must be because its the phone and not an IPad. Thanks for trying to help though.

    On my moms iPhone 4S she needs to press 2 times on it to make the mirroring appear maybe it can work for you?
