    I am trying to watch photos on my TV. But when I go to the camera roll, I don't see the little icon to send the pictures to the Apple TV. They showed it on their video, but I don't see it. Am I missing something.
    Oh yes, I did update to the new 4.2.1

    Please help.

    You can't access it from Camera.app, but in Photos.app you will see the AirPlay symbol in the upper right corner when viewing photos.

    What is Photos.app?
    Truly, I am a huge Apple fan, but this update is very disappointing. There are more restrictions, than things you can do with it. Same goes to printing restrictions, Netflix restrictions and I am sure there will be more.

    Your brain might be restricted if you do not know what the photos app is. And any restriction with Netflix is restricted from Netflix themselves not apple. Besides you have the Netflix app on atv why would you need to stream Netflix from your iPhone to atv and kill the battery of your iPhone and get interrupted by phone calls and notifications when you have Netflix already on your atv

    I am wondering the same thing. I am trying to do it via the second dock screen if you swipe right twice but not working.

    It will only show the button if it detects an Apple TV/Airport Express type device on the network. Be sure to update your ATV to iOS 4.2.
