    Just a quick one for those in the know; do the current receivers that support airplay support images? For example, can the family all beam photos to the receiver and will it play them like an Apple TV?

    I wanted to know really if Airplay on receivers have any limitations vs the Apple TV

    Thanks in advance!

    think it depends on the receiver. mine is "airplay compatible" but it is audio only - connecting just shows my receiver's GUI with text description of what im playing.

    As far as I can tell most receivers seem to be audio only. If there are any supporting airplay video, they are probably on the more expensive side I would guess.
