i had an issue with airplay, to view my iMac display on my TV I had to get up, walk to the other room and click airplay on my iMac then walk back to my couch. PITA. here's a tip if you want to remotely activate airplay on your iMac or Macbook without leaving your couch. 1. If you have airplay, simply download bettertouchtool for osx (awesome app) and get the $2 remote app for iPhone and set a custom function to enable airplay mirroring. 2. If you don't have an airplay compatible macbook or imac and are using airparrot, it's more complicated but works like a charm once it's set up. You still need to download bettertouchtool for your Mac and iPhone, then: 3. I downloaded menubar rearranger to ensure my airparrot icon would always load first and be in the same position. You might not need to do this. 4. download clickclick to be able to script mouse movements and clicks 5. Then create an applescript: activate application "Terminal" tell application "System Events" to keystroke "/Applications/Accessories/cliclick c:2194,12 w:200 c:2194,12 w:50 c:2226,100 " delay 1 tell application "Terminal" quit end tell (edit for whatever path you're using for clickclick, and your mouse coordinates will differ from mine. Hit cmd-shift-4 to get the coordinates you need to accurately click your menu items). 6. Go into bettertouchtool, under BTT Remote create a new shortcut under "Global". Select "open application/file/script" and find the applescript you just made. Give it a name and voila, all done. 7. Open the bettertouchtool app on your phone, connect to your Mac, click on Global, click on your script shortcut. * Bettertouchtool is also handy because you can set iphone shortcuts to turn off airparrot mirroring, turn the display off, make the computer sleep, etc..
