AirPlay and AirPlay Mirroring with Apple TV?
so i just bought apple tv and i am aware that you can stream pictures videos apps ect from your iphone directly to the tv with the apple tv device. this is where im confused. i know with the iphone 4s you can do "air play mirroring". i guess this can only be done with the iphone 4s and the ipad2. that is the difference between regular airplay and airplay mirroring? what can you do with the iphone 4s that you cant do with the regular iphone4 when using apple tv? thanks

AP Mirroring what is on your idevice screen is what is on your TV
AP is streaming content only not the image from your idevice screen.
For example when I have my sirius xm app open I can have the audio stream from my iphone through ATV but I don't see the display that is on my iphone on my tv
Oh and no wires reqired, just a common wifi network

If you AirPlay Pandora, the music and album art will stream to ATV, but if you AirPlay mirror, you actually see the app as it is on phone. You have to upgrade ATV to the latest software for mirroring to work. Also, some wireless routers have a security feature called Wireless Isolation... If you enable it the AirPlay won't work at all.
