I just got an apple tv yesterday. I connected it to my Onkyo receiver using the hdmi cable I was using for my laptop. It worked fine tonight for about 1/2 hr using airplay mirroring and then stopped, the video continued playing on my phone but froze on the tv screen. Nothing I did worked so, called support and was told to restore. It still wouldn't airplay after that so I called back and was told it had to be connected directly to the tv. Has anyone had to do this? I'm surprised that it can't go thru a receiver.
