I noticed a serious bug with streaming video content on an iTunes (Home Sharing) network with regard to video playback on the Apple TV with loss of internet connection. This issue was tested on: 1 x D-Link DIR-655 Xtreme N Gigabit Router 1 x TP-Link TL-WR702N Router 1 x Thomson DCM476 cable modem 2 x Apple TVs 3rd gen v.6.1.1 1 Mac Mini 2009 running MacOS 10.9.2, iTunes v.11.1.5 1 Mac Mini 2012 running MacOS 10.9.2, iTunes v.11.1.5 Ethernet/Wireless All MP4 video is trans-coded in Handbrake I have been able to verify that by removing my internet access (disconnecting power to my modem) video content doesn’t take the usual (Ethernet) 1-2 sec to begin playback. What I get instead is a 1-2 minute delay prior to playback. I did a factory restore of one of the Apple TVs as part of the testing. If not for recent service outages in my area I wouldn’t have discovered this issue. Interesting thing is this doesn’t affect music playback. Has anyone else experienced this issue? It would be an interesting experiment to disconnect the power to your modem to see if you get similar results? If someone has an Airport Extreme let me know if you experience this issue?
