Apple TV - how do you set it up so it's powered all the time?
We are going to have a few Apple TV's in classrooms to enable staff to use their iPads easily with IWBs. In one of our science classrooms the teacher persists (partly by lousy room design) in using his IWB as his screen with the desktop PC; with wireless KB and mouse that runs the board. Connecting the Apple TV to the system requires the wireless password to be put in and unfortunately it's open key not asterisks that come up.
Any way round this other than the obvious one of replacing the desktop pc with a laptop?

Once you've entered the key once it should remember it. It's not something you have to keep entering.
Out of curiosity, are you connecting Apple TV via HDMI? If yes, could you confirm something for me?
When the Apple TV menu appears, this should appear full screen - however, when dual screening with an iPad2 last week the iPad screen itself appears squashed in the middle and doesn't use the whole available screen on the projector.
Are you seeing the same thing out of curiosity?

Yes when streaming the devices drop to a smaller image.

- Rep Power
May sound like a silly question - is there an available ethernet socket you could use instead of wireless?

Has anyone bought a converter to change from Optical on Apple TV to Phono? It should work, but it would require the audio to be 2 channel and not 5.1 or 7.1 for example.

Yes, Apple TV v3 does have an Ethernet port.
