I've tried everything - the wifi connection between the ipad2 and the AppleTV is the problem in mirroring, and is apparently the weakest link, even though the A4 chip may be partly to blame (?). I have my doubts that the new AppleTV will do any better, even with the A5 chip, since it still depends on a robust wi-fi connection (mine is excellent), and wonder whether having a faster chip will make any difference.
I'm quite sure that Steve Jobs knew that the wi-fi needs to be MUCH faster to facilitate the kind of lag-free environment he wanted for connected wi-fi devices, and I can't wait for the next generation of faster wi-fi to appear. The current AppleTV works OK for a wireless slideshow, but takes forever to even get a movie started off the ipad2. I returned my AppleTV, and have had to go back to using the Apple AV connector and an HDMI cable to stream my iMovies, which works just fine, and streams at a crisp 1080p.
At least I can now take my iphone4S 1080p movies, download them into my PC - video edit it, and burn a Blu-ray disk, which is a crisp 1080p, with no discernable loss in clarity from my originating iphone4S recordings. I can then take the edited movie and upload it to my ipad for mobile viewing, all while preserving the original 1080p clarity.
