    I just started using this feature and although nice...it cuts out A LOT of the time. It also cut out A LOT when I was at a audio dealer that was showing this feature.

    Ideas?

    Did this happen with your iphone at the audio dealer, or another iphone? It could very well be your iphone if it did it with your iphone at home and at dealer, since I have not had that problem. Have you tried on your iphone to reset network settings? Sometimes weird things happen with wifi.

    He started playing it with his iPHone 4 first and there was no problem. I tried it next with my iPhone 4 and it cut out all the time at the audio dealer. When I got home I tried AirPlay and it still cut out with my iPHone 4.

    I'll try resetting the network settings to see if that fixes it.

    I'll report back.

    I just reset my network settings on my iPhone 4 and although it has helped it still cuts out just not as much.

    You may have a corrupted iOS. May have to do a restore on itunes.

    Bandwidth... What wifi speed is this operating at? imo if you are running at B or G then it's hopeless, even N can be a challenge with video streaming.

    The net effect of capped bandwidth will be freezes due to re-buffering and/or even the video ending prematurely.

    This was just streaming of music not video. I did reset my network settings on my iPhone 4 and it seemed to minimize the cut outs.

    Unfortunately I'm now with ATT Uverse and they're wireless router is B/G only.

    I had lots of problems getting my ATV to stream reliably via Wifi. I had a Belkin N router which was rubbish, switched to my cable ISP's G router which actually was faster and more reliable, but still tended to drop. In the end, I used Ethernet from router <-> ATV and it's faster and very stable.

    I still have the occasional problem with my iPad or Mac with iTunes content dropping off Wifi, but it's much, much rarer.

    I stream over wireless G and have never had a video stop to re-buffer. Takes about five seconds to start streaming HD video.

    Can You

    Disable the wifi function of the router and buy a decent one? Here in the UK the C*** hubs supplied by ISP's are legendary. Im with Virgin media, and have a 50MB connection. The so called "Super Hub" supplied has no external antenna and is utterly useless. I simply bought a top spec cable wifi router from Draytek, disabled the wifi side of the hub so that it's only being used as a modem.

    Streams like a dream......Even from across the park from me I can pick up my wifi on my phone.

    Make sure you Bluetooth is off on tour phone. I find that when the bluetooth is on it will cut out when streaming to airport express, but as soon as I turn BT off it streams fine with no hiccups.
