    Any idea why mirroring from my iMac doesn't have any sound on my Apple TV? I am connected HDMI and Ethernet to Apple TV but no sound.

    Thanks,
    Shane

    I'd reset the Mac, reset the Apple TV and see what happens. Do you have a strong wifi signal?

    I restarted the Apple TV and its working now. It's wired Ethernet not wireless.

    I'm trying to use third party apps to play non mp4 videos. I get the audio but no sound.

    But for music the sound works so.

    This is with mirroring the 5S to the ATV 3

    Are you using third-party software for Airplay i.e AirParrot?

    Yes. That's why I'm searching for people who have success with third party apps

    I've been using Air Video since 2009. It's chewed up and spit out every non-itunes-friendly video I've ever thrown at it. Best $3 I've ever spent. It would be on my top 5 app list if I made one.

    Air video works as a server and I had some problems with the audio lagging with the video on some stuff.

    But even still I'm looking for something I can load files onto and steam off the iOS device.

    I don't want to leave my PC on to air play for that I can hook it up hdmi
