    I am having an issue when using the mirror/airplay feature on my iPhone 4s.

    1. I have an Apple TV 2 updated to the latest software.
    2. I have a 16gb iPhone 4s.
    3. I have the most recent Apple Bluetooth wireless keyboard.
    4. I have an HDTV.

    This is my end desire:

    To mirror my iPhone 4s screen to my television, and type using my bluetooth keyboard which is paired with my 4s. In other words, my 60'' television becomes my screen as I type.


    I do not have any issues when I am simply trying to mirror my screen to the television. I do run into problems when I connect my bluetooth Apple keyboard. It works about 50% of the time. When I open the app 'Awesome Note', I am able to use my configured set up as described about 50% of the time. When it fails, the AppleTV 2 says the network connection has been lost. My 4s will read a failure about 30 seconds later. The only way I can connect all of these devices up again is by turning off my wi-fi, my 4s, and the AppleTV, with a cold-restart. Then when I connect them up again, it will work for awhile, but then it will ultimately fail.

    I like to write a lot, and this set up is great when it works.

    Any suggestions?

    I think the problem is bluetooth and wifi uses the same chip... So when your mirroring without bluetooth everything is smooth as soon as you open bluetooth and connect to a device, it gets jerky, that's because there's to much bandwidth for the chip to handle!
