I am suprised not to have seen a post about this.

Aertv.ie is the new name of Magnet and you can watch irish tv from your ips device without having to log in. Something like an filmo but for the ROI.

Enjoy!

I've commented in another thread about it. It works with AirPlay under iOS 5.

Could never get it to work for me either on iOS 4 or 5. It was only when I installed airplay mirroring the other day that it began to work.

Strange. AirPlay has worked for me since it's inception.

How do you get airplay? Is it an app?

Yes, of course, AirPlay has worked well for me from the start but it did not work with every online TV service often providing sound but not vision. One of those was magnetTV now AerTV.

Frustrated, I installed beta 6 of iOS 5 on my ATV and it began to work at long last (sound AND vision).

No, AirPlay is part of iOS. It appears if you have an Apple TV 2 on your network.

That's because in the older versions of iOS Apple left it up to the developers and website designers to choose whether to enable Airplay in their content or not with the default setting to disable Airplay, so unless a dev specifically enabled Airplay on their sites it would not function and indeed some specifically don't want people Airplaying, BBC iPlayer being one.

However in iOS5 Apple swapped it and now Airplay is enabled unless specifically disabled by the developer so more content will function.

And of course if a dev disables Airplay you can always enable Mirroring which will still work!

Do you know if mirroring will work on the iPhone 4 with the IOS 5 upgrade? I have an iPhone 4 and an ATV2, and I too have found it annoying that airplay only sends the audio for a lot of apps / webpages. E.g. Sky GO. It would be great if I could "mirror" Sky Sports onto my TV - currently only the audio works.

Also, is IOS 5 (or equivalent Apple TV firmware?) available to download to the ATV2 on Wednesday too ?

I tried but could not get mirroring to work with iPhone 4, despite reading elsewhere that it would work.
