Default Anybody here with Apple TV and iPad air?

Would be interesting to know if MIMO reduces the lag when mirroring to Apple TV. Best setup would be to wire the Apple TV with Ethernet.

Anyone here who can try it?

What does mimo for wifi do? Saw it in the keynote, but didn't look into it.

I have both. My tv is setup wirelessly though. I don't know that I notice much difference yet. I will test it out and see.

Apple TV has to be connected with Ethernet to stand a chance. Also your router has to be somewhat good and in the near of your ipad

The router is definitely up to par, but without the Ethernet connection it doesn't seem any better. I can't hook it up Ethernet though so someone else will have to test that bit.

But the current apple tv is just single attenna right?

Does mirroring actually go through the router so a ethernet connection would help? Or is it done wirelessly?

Yes the Ethernet connection would help (I would think, anyways). It goes through the router, but I think you are right on the single antenna of the TV. Ethernet is faster than wireless anyways.

Hopefully someone has the setup and can give results, as if it's noticably better I may have to adjust my setup. It would take a bit of work to do just for testing on mine though.

I am kinda thinking it might have to wait for the new rumoured apple tv to notice a speed difference with ipad mirroring, but yeah, i am curious too if the ethernet would make any difference with the ipad air. Hopefully one day airplay on appletv will be fast enough to be able to use for fast paced ipad mirrrored games.

It's such a pain that we don't have the opportunity to just stream hour games lag free on a tv... Every silly cheap android phone is able to do that.
