Airplay not showing up on Macbook Pro with OSX
I can see the Raspbmc from my Ipad and Iphone and from Itunes on my Macbook Pro. However it does not show up like a normal Airplay device in the settings and it is therefor not possible to use for Slideshows from Adobe Lightroom or presentations from OpenOffice.

Any ideas on why this is happening?

Regards!

As you speak of slide show and presentation from OSX I guess you mean airplay mirroring which is not supported by XBMC.

Ahh I see... sorry I didn't know that. That is a major problem for my usage as I was planning to use this for slideshow presentations.
It is a bit strange however for it works for that purpose from the Ipad even if I have to slide the photos manually instead of using the slideshow function.

Do you know if there are any plans to implement airplay mirroring?

Thank you for your reply!
Regards!

Airplay mirroring is encrypted and hasn't been reverse engineered.
As far as I know this is not a high priority and it seems that it is very difficult to figure out.
Perhaps some of the devs has a better answer, but there are many threads on this forum regarding this.
