    I set everything up and i can watch you tube videos with sound directly from the apple tv.
    When I open a tv show to stream to my apple t v no sound only picture. My iMac is brand new mirroring is on apple tv box is hooked up correctly but I don't get any sound.

    Is sound still coming from the iMac?

    Check System Preferences > Sound > Output to make sure your ATV is the destination for system audio.

    If its in iTunes just use airplay instead of AirPlay mirroring. Otherwise just ignore this :).
