    I am having some issues streaming music through AirPlay to my AirPort Express. We have a first run AirPort Express (circa 2004) and it has never been anything short of impressive. Plug it in, it works.

    Last night, we tried hooking it up and communicating with it. No dice. It was reset, though now, I realize that there are several types of resets (soft, hard, factory) and I am not certain which the hubby did. The end result was being able to connect to the AirPort Express' network but not to sign on with AirPlay. AirPlay recognizes it as an option but dulls it out for selection and has a picture of a satellite dish with a lock on it. The AirPort Express cycles through blinking amber and green. I've never had *any* issues, so I am stumped.:confused:

    Try a factory reset: unplug it from power, and while pressing the reset button plug it in again while still holding the reset button for a few seconds.
