    Is there any program out there, free or paid, that allows you to Airplay mirror from your Apple TV to your Windows 7 based PC? I'd like to do this, and I know of a few companies/company that designed this for Mac OSX, but that doesn't help me on my main desktop.

    Thanks.

    Do you mean from iOS device to Windows 7 (i.e. like Reflection and AirServer do on Mac OS X) instead of to Apple TV? If so, there isn't anything that I am aware of yet (I'm looking myself), the closest and best that at least supports minimal Airplay (without mirroring) is XBMC 11.

    There's an abandoned AirPlayer that works on Windows but is kind of flaky and unreliable. Also there is a plug-in for Windows Media Center though I never had much luck with it, either.

    Airserver has been updated to run on the PC; it's beta now, but updates are coming (they say).

    No, I want to access my desktop PC (upstairs) on my downstairs TV which is connected to AppleTV.

    Your AppleTV3 will only output to a TV. It's an AirPlay receiver.
