You can get a mount for it from the Apple Store. Just attach it to the wall where the remote can get to it. Or just set it on a counter top - it doesn't necessarily need to be mounted anywhere.

Thanks for the info. One other question, do you always need wifi to play content from a nearby iPad or will it play via Bluetooth?

We are planning to install Apple TV in our as

We have one at home and love it.

I don't believe you need Wifi to use your iPhone/ipad just use airplay if you have later model iPhone/ipad

We watch movies so that will be the majority of our use

This may depend on how old your Apple TV is, mine only works through WIFI or direct HDMI connection. Mine is fifteen months old and has no blue-tooth capability. Perhaps the newer units have blue-tooth.

The Airport Express, sold by Apple, creates a WIFI network which will connect your iPhone/iPad to your Apple TV

You could also create your own network inside your AS but that is another story. Connecting the AppleTV to your TV would be simple. Download whatever via your computer and iTunes then watch or listen on your TV via the AppleTV.

We use a Netgear MBR624GU WIFI router to network our PCs, printer, Iphones and Apple TV. It runs on 120v or 12v. It uses an Air Card for internet access. We no longer use an Air Card as we have a Verizon MIFI when we want to use the internet on the road. Our devices can also be networked using the MIFI, however, data moving from device to device uses our monthly data allowance, therefore, the Netgear router is best for us unless we need internet access such as for YouTube or other internet features of Apple TV.

If you have a movie/tv show/video downloaded to your iPad you can play it wirelessly thru the Apple TV w/o wifi. Just click the little icon (looks like a square with an arrow on it) and click 'Apple TV' on the drop box. If your iPad is hooked up to a mobile network you can stream content (YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, etc. ) to the Apple TV in the same way.

I'll give that a try tomorrow when I go to the trailer. That's where my Apple TV is at the moment.

Many people are mounting the AppleTVs on the back of the TV. I haven't tried it yet but apparently it actually increases the ability of the unit to detect signals from your remote. Nice solution.

Amazon.com : TotalMount APPLE TV Universal Mounting Kit : Television Mounts : Electronics

We use Apple TV, and we create a wi-fi network inside the Airstream with our Verizon Jetpack.

I bought a Wilson 4G/LTE signal boost cradle and mounted it just above the stereo in our 30' Flying Cloud. The cable runs through the Airstream to the roof (yep, new hole, drilled and sealed) where the antenna is permanently mounted.

I put the Jetpack in the cradle, and I almost always get a FULL four bars of signal, even when I'm camping in the Dakotas for hunting.

Works GREAT!

That might work for the latest generation of AppleTV but I don't think it works for the 1st and 2nd generation models. Mine requires a WiFi signal even to watch previously downloaded content on my iPad or from iTunes on my Apple laptop. While the WiFi signal is required, watching content from my iPad or iTunes does not use any of my 6GB limit on my cellular data plan. (Or if it does, it is so insignificant that I can't tell.) If I were to stream content or download a movie or TV show while camping then that would certainly use up part of my 6GB limit -- in a hurry.

I create a WiFi network in my trailer for this specific purpose by putting my iPad or iPhone in hotspot mode. I have the AppleTV configured to connect to the hotspot to satisfy its need for a WiFi connection. From there, it works great.

I have mine mounted in the cabinet with the Blu-Ray disc player which I've never used. I did buy an A/B HDMI switch for about $10 from Amazon that allows me to switch the HDMI source that goes to the TV. My 23D does not have a rear TV.
