I tried creating a hotspot via my phone to do this, but no luck. I was able to connect my Apple TV to my iPhone network, and mirroring worked fine but Amazon prime downloaded videos still wouldn't play.
No, I've never messed with Amazon video downloads. I do not have such acct. I really do not think it will work the way you are asking above. It is basically a stand alone hard drive with a wifi antenna. Almost like a mini "server" that you can take with you. You can load up documents, movies, pics, songs. Check it out by googling Goflex by seagate and see if it will be for you. I am happy what it does for me at this time but will be a lot happier when I get that Airstream.

Xicaque is correct. It is just a big thumb drive that you can setup as a local area network via the built in wifi service. It works great (I have a friend who has one and swears by it) and works perfect for airplay from an ipad. There is a definite period of time you are allowed to watch a downloaded video through Amazon Prime - http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=201460850

More info here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=201460820

and here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=201723660

Even though they are downloaded they probably have DRM (Digital Rights Management) functions enabled so every so often you need to have a connection to the Internet to check if you are still allowed to view. So while they are allowing you to download for free to view you do not own them and the viewing period does not last forever.

I'm not sure! I've had it several years now. I'll look tomorrow and see if it says on the unit.

They released the Rev A version of the AppleTV3 in January of 2013. Look at the model number on the bottom - it should say A1469 if it is Rev A and A1427 if it is not.

Like I mentioned the biggest difference between the two versions is the Rev A model has the ability to utilize Airplay while not having to have an Internet connection.

Decided to pick up a new Apple TV, model A1469, this weekend to use in the Airstream. The new one due soon has a lot of features I don't need and costs more.

I'll test it out this weekend on our next trip. Wondering if I should hook it up to my home system now to download any updates or just hook it up out of the box once I reach my campsite on Friday.

I just installed one at a customers house this past weekend that I purchased a couple weeks ago and there were no updates. Make sure your iDevice has latest update as well or you may have AirPlay issues

A1427 is what mine is. So i have to have internet connection? Which is ok at home, but if I want to purchase one for the camper I need A1469 and then I could use my Airstash on the road?!

Yes for both - but I would assume that almost all that are on the shelves right now would be 1469 models

Camping in the Airstream tonight. Unwrapped the new Apple TV, connected to the TV. Can't seem to find AirPlay on my iPad Air. Going to search for an answer. Running IOS 8.4. ATV is 7.2

Got Bluetooth on both devices.

Are you supposed to get the Apple TV and iPad bluetooths to pair first. They are unable to pair. Got AirPlay to show up but only iPad in the list.

You will need to update the iPad to IOS9. I had same issue (but reversed) the ipad was 9 and the ATV had the newest update and I could not use Airplay. Once you update the ipad all will be well.

Also make sure you have airplay enabled in the menu of the appleTV (I believe enabled is default).

So you have to be able to pair the two devices for AirPlay to work. When you have it working does the ATV give a pair code to enter into the iPad? This only happens with the iPad on IOS 9?

Thanks

Kelvin

Yes for the first time - and if you look in the menu on the AppleTV you can turn the pair code on or off. If I remember correctly you have to have wifi enabled on the idevice you are trying to pair with appletv for it to work also.
