Considering to get a HomePod when they come out, but will it be able to play the sound from an AppleTV via Airplay?
I'm guessing the 100Mbps number is from your internet provider.I have an Apple TV 3rd gen and the airplay from my MacBook Pro to it has always been a pain – lagging and stutters every 5 mins.
Looking at the HomePod and as it doesn’t pair with atv 3rd gen so will be buying a 4K atv too.
Just want to confirm that there shouldn’t be any lag in AirPlay between a MacBook Pro (2017) and an atv 4k? My home wifi is 100Mbps if that makes any difference.
I’m just using AirPlay screen mirroring.
You mean connecting my MacBook or directly to the wifi modem?if you can hard wire one or both of your devices. it should help
Yes. I've been using mine this way all yesterday afternoon. The sound from the HomePod is a huge improvement over the TV speakers (which, duh!, is kind of a given). The drawback is you have to set the HomePod as the sound source every time.Considering to get a HomePod when they come out, but will it be able to play the sound from an AppleTV via Airplay?
