I was hoping someone could help me with a problem I have in relation to playing movies on my TV through Airplay on the Ipad. I have an WD Mybook network hard drive which I store all my movies etc on, I have a very decent broadband connection with UPC 30mb + and I have the new apple TV 3 which as you know I cant jailbreak and am limited to mirroring any apple device to the TV.
The problem arises when I try to mirror a movie to my TV. The movie plays perfect on my Ipad/Iphone when I play direct on the device, but when I mirror to the ATV the movie lags from slight to ridiculous!
Initially I thought it may be the router that wasn't transferring the information fast enough from WD->Ipad(airplayer)->ATV->TV but Im not sure if this is the case. Its a standard router I have (not an N type and probably 150mbps at best). Broadband dl speed on laptop etc is a rocket so I don't think that is the issue.
The ATV is working fine, plays the .mp4 format files with no issue - (tested by playing through Itunes Home sharing. I have changed the ATV to 720p output and the IPAD is 720p so I dont think the issue is down to the 1080p compatibility.
At a complete loss as to how to fix same.
Any help would be much appreciated.
