I know this is technically the wrong forum for this, but I anticipate Apple users have more experience in this. Searching the web AirParrot is the main hit for this, but does anyone have any other preferences / recommendations for doing this.

I haven't tried it, I downloaded the trial app but installed. It will be useful for displaying everything other than iTunes (as it has AirPlay capability built in).

I think it is the only application out there for Windows to do AirPlay Mirror.

Sadly could not get it to see the AppleTV, maybe iPhone Tethering WiFi network does not allow the traffic accross. My projector is HDMI only while my Laptop only has VGA, I was hoping to use this software with AppleTV as a work around to get the Laptop onto the projector.

Not an issue with the tethered WiFi, can send AirPlay content from the iPad to the AppleTV via the tethered network.

I would ask the support team directly at AirParrot. I had no issue using this to mirror my Win 7 laptop to the TV via Apple TV. In the past I have found that AirPlay issues are almost always to do with the router. Using an iPhone as a router is unusual, I would tell them about that.

Changed over to an AirPort express (I find I have the greatest success with Apples own access point) but still no luck. Looked at the AirParot logs and it finds the Apple TV and believes that it is steaming to it, but nothing appears. The Apple TV also recognises the incoming connection, I've verified that by having the iPad streaming, then selecting the Apple TV from AirParot and the iPad stream is discontinued, but nothing comes through.

Maybe my laptop is just not powerful enough (Vaio VPCX117LG)?

I wiped and reinstalled the laptop, installed Air Parrot and it worked, however, the CPU load well exceeds the capability of my laptop.

AirPlay Mirroring on OS X uses hardware video encoding built in to the Sandy Bridge & Ivy Bridge Core processors. AirParrot does this in software to enable it on Windows & older Macs, so it's very CPU taxing.
