    I don't think you can. AirParrot doesn't work on PPC Macs.

    I think there may be a 3rd party jb app for this. I know you can VLC the ATV on Mac but vice versa?

    Welcome to the forums!

    Unfortunately, I believe that there aren't any solution's to mirror a PowerPC-based Mac on an AppleTV. The only application I've heard of that mirrors a display (other than Mountain Lion's built-in feature) is AirParrot, and I believe it requires Snow Leopard or newer, and therefore is only supported on Intel architecture.
