    I'm trying to airplay my iPads screen to my iMacs screen, did some research and found a program named air server. When i pull my CC up to turn it on, it isn't allowing me to press it, its like the buttons blacked out.
    Its supposed to look like this

    my ipad is jailbroken on 7.1.1 if that helps

    ----------

    Just put my ipad in safe mode which pretty much disables all the jailbreak tweaks, and now the airplay button/option is gone all together

    Yeah thats the problem too but why isn't it working? Im using air server its a app that lets you airplay your iPad to your mac btw

    They're on the same wifi i only have one wifi connection in my home

    There's really only a few ways this cannot work:
    1) Your Mac is NOT turned on
    2) AirServer is NOT started on your Mac
    3) Your Mac in NOT connected to the ONLY WiFi in your home
    4) Your iPad is NOT connected to the ONLY WiFi in your home

    Check with your iPhone or iTouch, you should see the AirServer (AirPlay button lit up).

    I've setup 100s of these and diagnosed dozens.

    That has never shown up for me before. Usually, if airplay is available, the icon won't show up at all.

    But then again, I find that airplay has been getting quite unreliable of late. Not sure if it's ios7 breaking it or my route simply not being up to scratch (I use a mifi device). I find my connection in class dropping more often these days.
