    I just barely bought an ATV 3 and it is wired to my network via ethernet and its been great using it for streaming movies and such. When I connect my iPhone 6 plus to it and mirror, it works for a few minutes then it will just disconnect. I noticed after this happened my iPhone would no longer play any videos (near my ATV or not). For example, on youtube I can hear the sound but the screen is black and any other videos from websites won't play at all. Resetting my phone fixes the issue temporarily but then it will just happen again.

    Should I try resetting my ATV and connecting it via wifi and see if that fixes the issue? Any ideas?

    Try restarting the Apple TV too. Apple TV 7.x really ruined the 3rd gen Apple TV when it comes to AirPlay working. I have mounds of issues too.
