    Can someone confirm that AirPlay isn't available when using the iPod app on the iPad?

    I can't find any way to do it and I think that I may have seen mention of this somewhere.

    It should be there to the right of the volume control. Also it's in the iPod controls in the task switcher.

    Thanks, I notice in your screenshot the battery indicator says "Not Charging". Does this mean that you were playing music from iTunes on a Mac or PC.

    I am playing music fom the iPod app on the iPad with music stored on the iPad and can't see anyway to output to AirPlay.

    No... was only the iPod app on my iPad playing music stored on the iPad itself. It says not charging because I was connected to my iPhone's charger (it still charges it, just at half the rate as high-power USB or the iPad charger).

    I wonder why I am not seeing the option to output to AirPlay? Now that I know that it should work, I will dig deeper. I am am sure that the iPod app would have been updated when I upgraded to iOS 4.2.

    So far I have been quite disappointed by all the things that AirPlay doesn't do.

    Can iTunes itself see your Apple TV 2G? If so the iPad should see it.

    Do any other apps show it? It should of course show in the Videos and Photos apps too--and in the switcher bar by the iPod controls.

    I have had it since 4.2 beta 2 I think for audio. I had to update my Apple TV to get it to work with video.

    Hi Michael,

    If you mean iTunes on my PC, yes.

    This is really puzzling. Photos can stream to AppleTV too. When I attempt to update AppleTV it says that it it up to date.

    Do you have an Apple TV or Airport Express on your network? The icon will not display if it can't see one of these.

    I assume you mean photos stream from the iPad photos app to the Apple TV, right? Can the Videos app on the iPad do likewise too? If so you have the latest ATV firmware.

    Oh and also, can you use the Remote app on the iPad to control your ATV? If so it would seem you have it all in place.
