    Did anybody already test the ATV4 with a powerline adapter? I am wondering if the ethernet port of the ATV4 stays always active or if it also turns off now if you put the ATV4 into sleepmode.

    I am asking, because with the older Apple TV model (2nd gen) the ethernet port was always active in sleepmode and did not let the powerline adapter to enter the powersafe mode. Hope they changed that with the new model...

    How would airplay wake up the ATV without the ethernet port staying on?

    It does stay on, just checked.

    Oh ok... Yeah, did not think about that, probably that is the reason...
