A couple of weeks ago I bought a brand new Apple tv, solely for the use of airplay with my wifes iphone 4 and my ipod touch. We have been having problems with the phone and the ipod with the airplay symbol disappearing. I've done many google searches and it seems LOTS of people have this problem, but I can't seem to find a straightforward fix.
This is what I have done to troubleshoot the issue.
Vodafone complete modem/router and all devices run on the same wifi network.
Updated Apple TV, and both phone and ipod run the latest ios. Router firmware also updated to the latest version.
Changed network authentication to mixed WPA2/WPA-PSK (As per suggestions on Apple website)
Changed WPA encryption to TKIP+AES (As per suggestions on Apple website)
Rebooted Everything including the router many times.
Home sharing on Itunes is turned on
Its driving me nuts that it works last night for example, but today no matter how many times I restart the ipod or iphone it wont work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
