I used to be able to mirror my Mac Book Pro screen to my LCD tv. It seems like when I updated to Lion it no longer works. Am I right, or Am I doing something wrong?

I used to be able to watch movies from my laptop on my LCD TV, and it seems to me that eversince I upgraded to the Lion operating system the mirroring does not work. I have researched previous questions and I have checked the FAQ section on the Apple website and I am told to click on the mirroring icon but the icon has dissapeared from my task bar. When I plug the adaptor from thunder to HDMI the laptop screen flickers, turns blue and then goes back to the desktop but nothing shows on the LCD. I have also tried with a Thunder to VGA adaptor and the same thing happens. Any clues?

Morning Oscar1975,
Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
AirPlay Mirroring requires either an Apple TV uses.
For more information on this, take a look at this article:

If your not using an apple tv and are just trying to use the tv as a monitor.
