Beamer with new Apple TV
I have beamer installed on my mba and my brothers mbp; it works great with my mother's apple tv --purchased last year-- but doesn't with my brother's new one. I figured it was a firewall issue, but the firewall was turned off on his computer. Anyone have a clue what might be going on?

It's most likely the iTunes HomeSharing
is it the same Apple ID used on the Apple TV as on the Computer (You setup your moms ATV ?)
I am not sure what port the screensharing is using, but I would suspect it's regular VNC with compression (so still using same ports)
Can your computer see your brothers computer on the locale network ?

it's not screen sharing, a quick look at the program says it converts and then sends over airplay, so nothing to to do with VNC or the ports associated with that (would be 5900)
try rebooting your router (and possibly all of your network gear), they sometimes get funky with airplay.
if that doesn't work google your router model number and airplay, see if there are any suggestions.
i've had problems on my router (Linksys e4200) that were fixed by changing the "WMM Support" setting

So everyone knows:
there seems to be an issue with the laptop's infrared sensor for the apple tv remote interfering with beamer or airplay somehow. Turned off the remote in system pref > security >advanced and, voila, beamer works like a charm.
