This is because your iPad has a lower resolution. It has to stretch the iPad's screen to fit onto your TV, while losing some resolution during the streaming. There is no way to fix this because with current software, this just isn't possible.

I concur with Nick. If you want to stream movies from iTunes on your computer, they MUST share a single iTunes account and both the computer and the ATV will need to validate that iTunes account by both independently accessing Apples authentication servers. Thus they BOTH must have internet access. BTW, both the ATV and the iTunes / computer will ...

I didn't see you mention iTunes at all in your post. iTunes is essential. Unfortunately, AFAIK, you can no longer just "share" movies from iTunes to ATV. You have to turn on Home Sharing, and I believe this requires a live internet connection. Both iTunes and ATV log into Home Sharing, and everything loaded in iTunes is available on the ATV.

For whatever reason, multicast traffic does not appear to correctly pass through the WiFi on this device, even with the latest firmware. TP-Link have a related technical note on this, but it doesn't seem to apply to my particular device. In ...

But I don't think itunes support avi file since all Apple device only accepts .mp4, .mov and .m4v videos. You'd better convert avi to mp4 or other Apple supported video format before straming via AirPlay.

If your MBP is early 2011 or newer and there's an Apple TV on the same wifi network as you, you should see an icon that looks like a TV in the menu bar. Click it and you'll get a dropdown menu listing all the available Apple TVs (in case there's more than one). Click yours and you should be good to go! If your MBP is older than early 2011, you'll need a ...
