if you're interested in the desktop mirroring to your apple tv 2, check out http://www.airparrot.com (http://www.airparrot.com)

Mountain Lion will require a second-generation Intel Core mac while AirParrot works on 10.6 and 10.7 regardless and it's available right now.

You can watch a demo/review I made about it here:
