I think this along with the new Apple TV, Netflix and Hulu Plus = Me finally cutting out cable. You can watch ESPN most of the time online, and other sports there is the HD Antenna. Saving over $700 sounds amazing

The resolution looks awesome. I need to go see one in person. I looked at buying one once online, but I thought the cost was too high. But when looking at monitors with similar resolutions I see it's actually pretty reasonably priced in comparison. I'll definitely check into it.

I would love to know whether airplay mirroring allows you to send video from for example a youtube video, the same way it does in iOS? (not mirroring, directly streaming the video) and can you do extended desktop mode with it?

This is probably all I care about - that they are synced. Is the framerate good? Can i watch mission impossible (or another action movie)?

Question - there must be someone with the ML preview who upgraded their ATV2 to ATV3. Any difference in quality of the mirroring due to the upgraded processor? My TV's 720p only, so this is about the only possible difference for me. Thanks!

Does anyone know whether AirPlay will actually work "both ways"? I for one have no need for any Apple TV under my television as I've already gotten myself a Mac Mini 2011 model acting as both HTPC and media-server as the Apple TV2 was simply to limited in features to do all the things I wanted.

I highly doubt I'm the only one whom have gone by this route, which leads to the simple question of whether Mountain Lion will bring the possibility for people like me to run AirPlay from my iOS devices and other Macs running Mountain Lion to my Mac Mini running Mountain Lion which are hooked up to my home theatre?


Or do we have a case of "you'll have to buy yourself a Apple TV3 if you want AirPlay, even though your Mac Mini should be more than capable of doing so but we won't let you."

Anyone there who could tell us? I wonder about this too but no one seems to care to answer... Is 1080p mirroring working on Mountain Lion now? Is it still 720p? Any difference?

No need to wait for Mountain Lion (and I don't think it will even include that functionality), just get the AirServer app.

AirServer for Mac transforms your Mac into an Apple TV-like AirPlay/AirTunes receiver. It does not require that you jailbreak your iOS devices.

I avoid this Airplay nonsense by using a mini display port to HDMI cable from ebay. The HDMI cable feeds the Onkyo receiver and another HDMI from receiver to 46" TV. I use Movist app found on Mac app store and audio is set to SDPIF/HDMI bitstream for my Onkyo to decode.

There you go. True 5.1 sounds on any files like mkv, m2ts files without worrying about compatibility or wireless bandwidth issues.

On the Airplay Wiki it says you need a second-gen core iX cpu to run Airplay. Can anyone confirm this as true? It's looking bleaker and bleaker for my 2009 MBP
