    Looked, but cannot find answer.

    So I have the ATV hooked into my receiver via HDMI. I also have an Apple Music account. I go to music, pull something up to play. All is great. Turn the TV off because I don't need to have it sucking electricity if all I'm doing is playing music. But if I do that, the audio becomes choppy and stop-and-go. Turn the TV back on, and it's rock solid.

    Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

    I'm guessing it's a setting or limitation of your receiver.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply. The receiver's settings are so esoteric, I'm loathe to go in there. I guess I need to just find peace with having the screen on. Seems silly though. Sigh.

    Try disabling the "Control HDMI" (or whatever it's called) on the AppleTV menu. Worth a shot...
