    This is hard to explain but is what I need to do.

    I want to use my Mac Mini to stream movies etc to my Smart TV via HDMI wired through the wall.
    But some times I want to mirror my screen to my Apple TV downstairs over WIFI instead.

    Set up -
    Mac Mini and Smart TV is upstairs
    Apple TV and LG TV is downstairs (hence using Aiplay).

    I can get both to work but I have to mess about with the display settings and the Airplay settings when ever I want to change over from one TV to the next.

    At the moment this is the setting I see in the Aiplay drop down

    Connect to Airplay Display > ticked
    Mirror all displays > ticked
    Match desktop size to > Apple TV

    If there is a way to get this set up so I dont have to keep trying to configure it every time I want to use it that would be great!

    Sounds like an Automator kind of task. I am not able to instruct you how to do it. So wait for other MR members to chime in. Or start investigating on it.

    I'd get an ATV for the first set also. That way you're just switching from one ATV to the other, all the other settings remain the same.
