    I have a MBA 11in (love it ) and an ATV G2 which I've just JB to 4.4.x
    I've installed XBMC and now I want to install *something* which will enable me to stream/mirror content from my MBA to the ATV.
    I don't need zillions of movies or other stuff .
    I just want to to mirror content from MBA to ATV.
    I can use a HDMI cable of course, but I'm trying to avoid cables.
    Specifically, I have a satellite program which streams content from Europe and I want to watch it on my TV via ATV instead of the small screen of the MBA.
    Can anyone help with some very simple instructions ?

    Playon will accomplish this I have never used it but it's describes what you are trying to do.

    Checking this out, I believe, that it's a pay for service.
    I already subscribe to a VPN link for watching overseas TV programs on my computer. I just want to mirror the content over to my large screen TV without using a HDMI cable.
    Surely, this is simply achieved using a JB ATV 2 without paying for anything else.
    I'm not really interested in playing/watching music/movies in an iTunes library via the ATV.
    Just mirror my MBA TV streams.
    Anyone ?
