Hey,

Is it possible to get an Atv2 to send it's audio to an express?

you know, the typical express to the stereo, atv to the tv, but the tv speakers suck, and would like to avoid wiring another cable from the atv to the stereo...

perhaps an aftermarket program?

thanks,
r.

i think i saw a mention of this for the upcoming OS update, don't remember where though, and only saw it once.

I think you're thinking the new AirPlay mirroring feature in mountain lion. Don't think that applies to this particular issue though.
nope, i'm thinking of being able to airplay audio from an aTV.
think it might have been someone with access to a beta, and they found it burred in a menu somewhere.

like i said i think i read it, don't remember where, and i've tried searching, but come up with way too many hits that aren't what i'm looking for.

and... after another 15 minutes of searching

Even if it did work, the lipsync would be so bad that you wouldn't use it.

have you played video on an iOS device, and sent the audio via airplay?
it's pretty spot on.

I used to put netflix on the ipad, and send the audio to the airplay speakers in my kitchen all the time.
