I bought a new iPad and an Apple TV 3 last year. iOS up to date.
The feature I want is mirroring.
I can get Apple TV to work on my TV with that annoying little silver remote, but have never managed to get the remote app to work.
I got mirroring to work once when there was an update, but never again.
The Apple TV keeps telling me to turn on home sharing - it IS on.
Driving me crazy, mirroring has the potential to be so good but is not behaving like an apple product
Have searched the net - no help
I know at least one other person with the same problem
Can anyone help?

Normally when I see this issue, the two devices are sitting on different networks.
For instance, the iPad might be on a 5Ghz network, and the ATV on your routers 2.4 network... I'm guessing you've checked this though?

I've had this occur after previously having it working.

Always resolved with a router reboot.

Can you temporarily run a cable from your router to your AppleTV? If it goes with a cable, then the issue is witht he wireless.

You will ba able to modify which WiFi networks are running in the settings of your router.
