    Dear All,
    Welcome on board - such a great source of knowledge !

    My home entertainment system configuration is as follows:
    MacBookPro (mid 2010)
    iPad 3 + Air Video app
    iPhone 4
    n-band router
    PS3
    Samsung LED TV

    Everything but iOS devices is hard wired either with Ethernet and HDMI cables.

    Recently, I bought ATV3 to finally enjoy medias on a big screen.
    I stream movies via ipad using AirVideo, i stream music via MBP using built-in audio mirroring (sometimes laggy, but it's not an issue for this moment)
    So everything works just fine... untill ATV crashes...

    ATV becomes unresponsive and i have to PLUG IT OFF the wall for a few seconds. Then it boots up, until i play music again. And it goes over and over again.

    I noticed that i can watch entire 2h movie without issues, but later, when i stream music (either from iOS/MBP) it works for couple of minutes and ATV shuts down.

    Software is up to date. I tried restore, disabling screen saver, setting sleep to 'never' - nothing helps.

    Any suggestions what's the matter ? Its software or hardware issue ? Maybe something is overheating while streaming, but i hardly believe that...

    Looks like it only happens while streaming a music via AirPlay. Either from iTunes or system audio (SoundCloud website is the source if it matters).

    ATV + Mountain Lion was about to finally de-wire my MBP from receiver :(

    APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.
    Pete
