    Hello all,

    I have searched for days without a fix and am finally turning over to the Apple Veterans here.

    I purchased a new Apple TV from the apple store. I was assured at the store (after providing my MBP serial number) that my Early-2011 MBP running 10.7.5 will be able to run/do "Airplay" via Apple TV.

    I am able to do Airplay just fine via both Iphone 5s in the house as well as the Ipad2.

    I have checked and double checked everything under the sun and still cannot get the "Airplay" option to show up on my desktop bar.

    I have checked "Display" properties in System Pref and the option to check/uncheck "allow airplay screen mirroring" is not even available.

    Can someone please help me figure out why 3 different Apple technicians claim that my MBP should be able to do Airplay, yet I can't.

    What am I missing here?

    Do I need to upgrade to 10.8 OS?

    At this point I am willing to try anything.
