2 Apple TVs in same house = problem with airplay
Hopefully you guys can help.
Here is my situation. I use a PC (no Mac) I have an iPad and iPhone and have 2 Apple TV's on the same wifi network in my house. One is in my bedroom and one in the living room.
When I hit the airplay button on the ipad or iphone the drop down says " iPad, AppleTV, AppleTV". It will recognize that I have 2 Apple TVs in the house. Which is great.
1. I don't know which apple tv is which b/c they both just say Apple TV. Is there anyway to name them so I know?
2. the ipad will randomly decide which apple tv to play from. If I have the living room apple tv off and the bedroom one on it will sometimes stream to the bedroom appletv and sometimes nothing will happen b/c I think it's trying to access the living room appletv. It's just odd and a bit frustrating.
I'm sure this topic has been discussed here before and I'm sure there are other people here that have more than one apple tv that maybe knows what I should do or if there is some easy fix.
At the apple store the non genius employees had no idea how to fix it. They said I do get one apple care phone call so I'll use that but wanted to get some information before I called.
This is my first ever problem with the software on an apple device so it's a bit annoying but ok since every other thing i've ever owned is either confusing or never works. I'm sure there is an easy fix but I was a bit shocked that there is a problem b/c there seems to never be problems in my experience with apple products.
