    Mythtv vs AirPlay Mirroring

    I have a Ubuntu MythTv box in the living room. I use a lot the airplay function with my iPhone. I'm able to play video on Mythtv and it's great. I have a MacBook too and try to use the new function of AirPlay Mirroring in Mountain Lion. I think it's not supported in Mythtv. Anybody knows if work is in progress to support this in Ubuntu?

    I don't know what AirPlay mirroring is. You'll have to provide a link
    *Don't PM me directly for support, open a new thread
    *Looking for a MythTV quick start guide?

    I don't believe that is possible with mythtv.

    Thanks. It can be something else than MythTv on Ubuntu. I was very surprise to use Ubuntu instead of an Apple TimeCapsule to backup with Time Machine (http://blog.bertelsen.co/2012/07/tim...untu-1204.html). So Ubuntu is able to AirPlay video and backup. And i forgot that Mac Os drive can be shared with Ubuntu (http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/inde...t-1502964.html).

    Maybe the next step can be to provide mirroring too. Just saying!
