Quick question, is it my cheap graphics card or is there a different reason Airplay mirroring disappear from menu bar when monitor is connected thru HDMI or DVI. It works with VGA.

Can you still access it from System Prefs -- Display ?

I'm using a GTX 1050 and it still gives me that option when I use HDMI. What system definition do you use ?
iMac 13,1

Here's Apple's official requirements. Make sure you meet all of these.

Minimum requirements if your Mac and Apple TV are on the same network:

I'm not sure if it is a problem unique to the GT210 card. You could try a 710 and see if that works.

Minimum requirements if your Mac and Apple TV are on the same network:
To find out what network your Apple TV (4th generation) is using, go to Settings > Network. On earlier Apple TV models, go to Settings > General > Network. The Apple TV should be on the same network as your Mac.

All these requirements seem to be okay. I'm going to buy better card. Reason I bought cheap one was to build Hackintosh as cheap as possible. Even if I had to pay for that 8300 (which I've got for free) I would not spend more than $70. Now it's time to beef it up. Thanks for your help

Sounds good. Make sure to use the 13,2 iMac system def. as those had discrete graphics cards.
