    Hello guys / girls.

    New here, and of course , have bought a problem with me!

    After a few weeks of trouble free iPad to AirPlay interaction.....

    We were half way through watching 'this is england' streamed from 4 OD via ipad1 to appletv2.

    Then the picture went off ( I think when iPad went to sleep).

    When trying to carry on viewing we found that:

    A) the 'remote' app on ipand AND iPhone no longer works, and only displays a 'turn on home sharing' message.
    Home sharing IS and was turned on.

    B) the airplay icon has disapeared from the bottom 'icon list' AND all apps!

    Apple tv is working fine via its own remote control.

    Mystified!

    Any ideas?

    Edit: given the "turn on sharing on your computer or appletv......" message occurring on the iPad and iPhone at the same time, it seems logical that the problem emanates from the apple tv itself right?
    Pad and phone seem to think that sharing is NOT turned on on apple tv. Appletv says it is!

    Thanks, yes I've got your app!
    Found some usefull info re: router settings, will try this later and report back.
    Makes sense, it (the router) is certainly the weakest link between two rather good bits of kit.
    Cheers

    Noticed other people suffered sudden 'outage' of AirPlay while watching streamed content.
    I still suspect the iPad going to sleep was the 'trigger' (now turn that off while streaming just in case) but switching the router off for ten seconds, then pressing 'reset' (on the back of the router) sorted things out.

    AirPlay symbol is back, and working!
