    I've moved this to the iOS section, where there are currently a number of threads on iOS5 problems.

    You need to upgrade your Apple TV to version 4.4 software.
    Go to the General section of the Apple TV menu then check for updates and follow the bouncing ball.
    Once you have done the update everything works like magic. To access airplay mirroring just go to the bottom task bar and scroll all the way to the right until you see the video controls. The Airplay icon for mirroring is there.

    I have updated Apple TV software today, updated Ipad2 and iPhone to IOS5 and still can't work out how to get air mirroring of IPad working. Air Play is on on Tv . All apple photos etc work as before, but I thought IOS5 included mirroring!

    Perhaps it is me being a little dim?

    Do you have to set a password for mirroring?

    I have now found the icon. I was a little dim! No password is required.

    The icon is a new blue one on the IPad on the task bar where the IPod controls are. So for simple people like me, you just press the home button on the IPad twice and drag the bar to the right. Why do Apple keep that hidden away, and not include it as a setting?

    Do you have an iPad2? Cause mirroring is only offered on those, not the iPad1.

    Have you been to the task bar (on IPad2) where IPod music controls are? There you will see the new relevant icon for mirroring. It turns blue when you press it and then your IPad2 sends everything to Apple tv- which presumably you updated already. Then both the IPad and your TV have identical content on the screens.

    Ok i got what the problem was. I upgraded my Apple TV but it seems that it only upgraded to 4.3. I tried again but it would say that i have the current update. The i hooked my APV on my Mac and did a full restore and update , so now everything works fine.
    Thx for the help guys
