    Yesterday was streaming Hulu from iPhone 4S to Apple TV2 just fine. Today I went to do the same, scrolling to the right but all that is there is the volume bar and no AirPlay icon.

    Anyone know what to do? I checked Apple's help page, on the safe WiFi network, AirPlay enabled, I restarted my phone, and still nothing!

    Anyone have any other ideas?

    Software up to date as well.

    Like I said, I just used it last night.


    I just reset network settings and still nothing...

    anyone with a 4S also having this issue?

    I have been having a lot of issues with AirPlay in general on both my iPad and 4s. Sometimes it works, other times it is missing, and other times it works for a few minutes before the connection disappears.

    I am stumped.

    I had a similar problem trying to mirror games, like you i double clicked and slid to the volume screen, showed the Airplay emblem but mirroring was not a choice. So I set up a password for Airplay on the AppleTV2, nothing. Reset my phone and there it was. Are you only having trouble with HULU or other apps as well?

    It was everything.

    I had to entirely reset my phone for it to reappear. :mad:

    Do you have it turned on? Double click the home button and swipe left, twice, to get to the spot to enable it in your phone.
