    Hi all, I just ordered an Apple TV, and was looking at set up online. Problem I do not have the airplay button on my I pad. Any help is greatly appreciated. Not sure if this issue has anything to do with being JB or not. Thx.

    The AirPlay button in the Control Center will only show up when the iPad detects something it can use AirPlay for. It should not have anything to do with jailbreaking.

    If you have a computer you can use the Reflector app to enable it as an AirPlay receiver. They have a trial version that you can use to check it out. I believe there are a couple other AirPlay enabling apps for computers, but Reflector is the one I use.

    You can also use AirPlay in conjunction with bluetooth speakers. The speakers must be paired and connected in Settings > Bluetooth before they will show up in AirPlay.

    When your Apple TV is hooked up and powered on, this is what you will see in your control centre. image-3477610195.jpg

    And, for the fun of it, here is what it looks like when I select my iMac running Reflector, and mirroring it so that (almost) everything you see on the iPad shows on the computer.

    And this what happens when I point the camera at the computer screen that is showing the iPad screen that is showing the computer screen that is. . .

    What can I say. I'm easily amused. :D



    BTW. You don't' see the AirDrop button in my Control Center because it's an iPad 3, and does not support that feature. Another reason to upgrade {so hard to wait}.

    Thank you, so much and your las comment was totally amusing. So, sounds like I will not have the airplay button until I hook up Apple TV, correct?
