    Apple TV & Airplay
    Question is:
    With Mountain Lion, is it now possible to send non iTunes videos to TV?
    For example- I have a DVD playing a movie on my MacBook- can this be directly streamed to TV?
    From what I've read, Airplay allows transmitting the desktop directly to TV.
    Let's say I am making a Skype call (with my grandkids) can the be viewed on TV ?

    If you have the appropriate equiptment and software (About AirPlay Mirroring in OS X Mountain Lion) you can mirror anything that's on your Mac screen to your TV via your AppleTV.

    If you don't meet the criteria have a look at Air Parrot
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
