    Yes and if your Apple TV is jailbroken you cannot output without mirroring. It says you must update to latest release of Apple TV software which will pooch your jailbreak. Be warned and don’t update for now.

    I thought there was no JB for TV 3?

  • Boviner

    There isn’t but if you have an Apple TV original or 2nd gen for now its game over.

    Then it doesn’t matter, because you are not going to get the HD benefits from this update anyway. The airplay though is cool.

    This is probably a really stupid question, but why would you need AirPlay for Netflix (other than the rare scenario of watching something at a friend’s house who has an AppleTV but not a Netflix subscription)?
