    I am just wondering if anyone has bought a Pay Per View event and used Air Play Mirroring to watch it on TV through an Apple TV (I have a AVT2). I was planning on having a get together for the UFC this weekend, but I am wondering if I should move on of the computers to the TV room and plug it directly into the TV or reply on the ATV. I am worried about stream quality etc.

    Not pay per view, but I've airplay mirrored internet streaming video from my MBA and MBP to my AppleTV's with little issue. Airplay Mirroring adds a minor amount of artifacting, but overall the experience has been fine. Obviously the image of the stream is more important to a good experience (i.e. low bandwidth video is awful).

    Hey guys, I just thought I'd give you an update. For some reason my netbook wasn't running well yesterday, so decided to go the Airplay route for the PPV. It worked great. I do have both my computer, and ATV2 hardwired to the router though now, which I think made a big difference over my last attempt at Airplaying a live event. The stream was fantastic quality though, and everything worked well.
