Hi there , would anyoneknow how ( or if !) to get the mirror function to work on my iPad 2 , I have a sec gen Apple TV , all up to date, I also have a Vodafone router HG556a . I have enabled mirroring on the Apple TV but on the iPad or any of our iPhones . Thanks loads clever people :)

Double click the home button to bring up the multi-tasking bar along the bottom.Swipe right to get the volume and brightness controls, tap on the apple tv/airplay symbol and select apple tv :o)

Cheers Magoo , when I double click and slid I get all the lock and volume buttons etc but no mirror icon

That means that either it's not enabled on the ATV, or you're not on the same wireless network, or there's some kind of firewall (etc) blocking the traffic so they can't see each other.

Have you updated to latest iOS!I think it's only 6 and above that does this.

I was able to use the mirroring function with ios5 :o)

Yep , have the latest iOS 6.01 on all devices.

What type of router do you have !

Thanks again :)

This happens to me sometimes and I'm not too sure why but restarting the apple TV usually fixes it. Interestingly enough I have the exact same router.

Thanks nia , I tried turning on off Apple TV but still no joy . Someone told me today that the huawei router that Vodafone supplied ay be the issue !

My boss has the exact same problem with that router.

Is your ATV jailbroken!If so, mirroring wont be available.
