    I'm new to iMac and Apple products\software. Is it possible to wirelessly mirror the image on the iMac to my TV in another room? Would I need Apple TV for that?

    I want to run a program (Trainer Road) on the iMac and see the data on the TV in the next room while I'm on my bike trainer.

    You will need Apple TV for this, or a convoluted set of extra hardware that would probably end up costing more than a $99 Apple TV.

    Note that your iMac must be a 2011 model running Mountain Lion for it to work on Apple TV.

    wow, thats actually a great program. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    What sensors do you use it with?

    Great! That is what I have. Thanks!

    I have the CycleOps Jet Fluid Pro trainer. I plan to use my 310xt and cadence\speed sensor. You simply plug in the USB ANT stick and run the program. I dropped some $$$$ on the iMac instead of a powermeter. So, this is my "poor man's computrainer" :D

    hi guys,

    Just a quick related question about Airplay to TV. Does this transmit audio from your Mac to TV, as well as the video?

    Thanks.

    Everything you see and hear on your Mac is also on the TV set.
