    Aren't the videos, movies, etc that you play on your IPhone suppose to show up on both the IPhone AND the Apple TV? I can get one to play at a time, but not both. Mirroring is on and I chose Apple TV, so shouldn't it play on both? Other things like the Internet and iPhone screen mirror, but when you start a video...it's only on the TV. Thoughts?

    Movies are currently only visible on one screen at a time.

    Same thing with music videos and tv shows? Basically all video then only plays on one or the other? Not really the way it is advertised?

    I've never seen anything advertised that shows videos could be mirrored to both screens via AirPlay. I don't think videos are mirrored using the VGA/HDMI cables either.
