I'm about to buy aTV so that I can stream my videos to the TV via iOS devices or my hackintosh. Before that I tried Reflection.app in another hackintosh to see if the airplay icon showed up. Unfortunately, it didn't show up.
There are too many variables for my testing environment.

Just want to ask if anyone has an aTV and tried out the new airplay mirroring function?

I used two system definitions to test, both failed
iMac 12,1
Mac Pro 5,1
Have this Graphics Card: Gigabyte GTX460 1GB

Are those real macs you tried it on or Hacks with those smbios?

It requires an intel Sandy Bridge (2nd generation) or newer (ie. Ivy Bridge) processor.

They are just hacks with smbios. And thanks, your thread did help me understand how I can get AirPlay working, but sadly, I don't have intel integrated graphics, my hack is x58.
Thanks for the information anyway. =]

You can always use AirParrot (www.airparrot.com) if your hack doesn't have the hardware to support AirPlay natively. I use it and it works pretty good. It does take a hit on the CPU but on my i7 2600k it's not a big hit. AirParrot also does things that the native AirPlay doesn't, like letting you mirror a second display, extending your desktop over Airplay (virtual monitor), or only mirror a specific application. For $10, it's a pretty good deal.
