I signed up yesterday for a three month trial (via a Skinny offer), and starting the iPad app I got a warning that AirPlay wasn't working, and it could be some time until it was resolved. And indeed sound works but no picture (and I don't count mirroring as acceptable!).

How long has this problem been happening?

Given the lack of an ATV app we are somewhat dependent on AirPlay to make much use of Light on, so not a great start!

Btw, is there a way of casting Lightbox to a TV via an Amazon Fire TV?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the replies; I hadn't seen that earlier thread, so thanks for pointing that out.

Well, that makes the trial a waste of time for us, given almost all our watching is on the TV. I just can't be bothered using a browser on the HTPC anymore (which I could use for viewing Lightbox), not when Netflix is just so easy to use via the ATV or how iPlayer just works via Airplay...

I'd also need to see discrete audio (5.1) on Lightbox before I'd pay for it. A pity, as I'd like to support a local effort, but the lack of an ATV app or functional Airplay and the no 5.1 are fatal flaws for me...
