Using TV as Monitor with Apple TV

Guys,
I have a mid-year 2010 iMac with Snow Leopard, and called Apple Support I wanted to mirror my computer onto my TV. They stated if I have an Apple TV (which I do) I could do that just by downloading Mountain Lion and using the Apple TV.

Well, I did that; I downloaded Mountain Lion and is now my OS, however, I am not getting the Airplay icon on the top right. I was given the following link by Apple, but I don't see the icon:
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5404?

At that site it states my Mac has to be "mid 2011 or newer." So, what happened? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I attached a pic of the icon not showing.

Your iMac is not compatible with AirPlay mirroring. Contact apple again and tell them one of their people told you otherwise and they should comp you the purchase price of mountain lion.

Thanks, I figured as much.
Can I still do it with an ethernet cable? Thanks again!
