Mirroring option not appearing in iPad Mini

Hi,
I am having an issue with my setup:

I dont have the option for mirroring when selecting Apple TV in the Control Center. I can see the Apple TV and I can select it, but there is no option for mirroring.

I have a brand new apple tv.
Im pretty sure this is a Gen-1 iPad mini.

I have the latest updates for all devices.
I have restarted all devices, including my router.

What am I missing?

Thanks!

Re: Mirroring option not appearing in iPad Mini

One other note: when I select the apple tv in the Control Center, I see a small black box appear in the lower left corner of my TV with a Music icon in it. It stays up for a couple seconds, then it goes away.
The audio is definitely connecting, as I can hear audio coming through the speakers. But no video.

Normally these issues are resolved by making sure both devices are updated to the latest version of iOS, and rebooting the devices. If you still don't see anything either one of the devices is not working as it should, or there are issues with the network. I would recommend contacting Apple Support in that case.

Re: Mirroring option not appearing in iPad Mini

Thank you for replying on Christmas Day: that's service!

I was able to get it to work: apparently, there is no mirroring option for the ipad mini. When I was in my browser (Chrome), there was an icon for the app. I clicked that, and it worked.

You may want to add that to your documentation.

Thanks for the help!
