This week Apple started to roll out tvOS 10.2 for their 4th Generation Apple TV. Now we are finding out that it is breaking third party apps that use AirPlay.
Why is this happening? Well Apple is now requiring the Apple TV to require device verification from AirPlay streaming devices —which can only be provided by Apple hardware. Now apps that let Windows and Android devices to AirPlay to the Apple TV will no longer work. This effects apps like Airfoil that allows Mac or Windows users to stream any audio source.
So if you want to keep access to third party Apple TV AirPlay apps do not update to 10.2.

AirPlay via DS Audio also does not work to my Apple TV4 10.2 from my iPhone 6S Plus (latest iOS 10.3.1) or my 3rd gen iPad (iOS 9.3.5)

I have the same problem and had to (again) switch back to my old Apple TV.
Is there any solution yet given by synology support?

Return to “DS audio”
