You can mirror what ever is on your iPhone to the atv2 wireless
Is that it?
And this only works with the ipad
only with the iPad 2**
but apple tv will also have Photo Stream
As long as i have icefilms
what else were you looking for??
I don't know...maybe apps? Hulu? CNN? Pandora? Need I go on? This was a major, major letdown. Apple TV could be a great media box. Apple seems content to let it peak at mediocre in each iteration. The worst part about it is everything is there for them to make it great this time.
Maybe AppleTV will have more spot light on it in the fall music event.
If they would of added all those features to AppleTV yesterday it would still be overshadowed by Lion and iPhone, iPad iOS5 features.
Apple Needs a more dedicated event for AppleTV for the press to really notice it and push the information around that its a revamp OS.
Last year they released AppleTV at fall event ... I hope this year they release an SDK for it
Heres a quick video of the iPad mirroring.
couldnt agree more, I don't even have my atv2 plugged in anymore, there just isnt a compelling reason to use it.
that ipad mirroring via airplay looks awesome though
This is a developer conference about things that matter to developers. You can probably take the lack of focus on the ATV as a good sign that an SDK is not coming immediately. Beyond that though, no useful conclusions to be drawn.
This is nice, hopefully there will be a jailbreak hack to make it work on the iphone
Does mirroring now open up every single website (non-flash, of course) and app for viewing on your TV? Watching that demo video, it looks like it does. So, non-Airplay enabled apps like Hulu Plus, HBOGo, etc. may now find a place on the family room TV. Let's hope so. *fingers crossed*
Every app I have tried with it has worked, some better than others.
Slingplayer goes fullscreen, C4 on demand and BBCi player are not.
Games don't play fullscreen.
If you put the iPad to sleep, whatever is on the screen goes off, so you cant run Slingplayer with the iPad off, hopefully Apple will change something to allow this.
Does this work with the iPad 1?
is there a beta for the atv2 or do i just need ipad2 5.0 beta?
I agree. I disconnected mine months ago, now its collecting dust in a shelf. Id use it for Plex, but I imagine support would be better if apps could be commercialized and not rely on jailbreak and hacks. As of now I find it kinda useless. Hopefully thats gonna change come the fall event.
I use my ATV2 each and every day. I love streaming my iTunes content (including all of my ripped DVDs) to my HDTV/home theater, as do many other folks I'd imagine.
To each his own I suppose.
You need the beta of ios 5 on the iPad and the beta of ios 4.4 on the ATV.
It only works with the iPad 2.
Does the ATV need to have it's UDID registered?
