Airplay off guests' iPhone 5

I have a friend over who is connected to my home wifi (not guest network) and we're trying to stream his music over my Apple TV (3rd Gen)

The trouble is getting the icon to show up; does he have to be using the same Apple ID as mine or something?

He has an iPhone 5 with iOS 6, so I don't think it's a software problem.

He needs to sign into your "Home Sharing" network. On his phone, go to Settings-->Videos-->Home Sharing and enter the AppleID and password that you have set up in your network.

You don't have to have the same home sharing. It should just automatically connect if you are on the same network. Try turning airplay off on the AppleTV then back on that helps me sometimes.

Yeah I make it a point to join everyones Wifi network and take over DJ duties. All I need is the WIfi key which is easy.
