    To all concerned.... :)

    Can I get my AppleTV to play my video files audio to multiple Airplay enabled speakers ?

    I have a B&W Zepplin Air plus a ARCAM irDac enabled Rotel Hi-Fi system... and these are the two sets of speakers I would like the video audio from AppleTV to play to.

    Currently my B&W Zepplin Air plays the audio from my TV as a kind of sounds bar. I have my B&W Zepplin Air connected directly into my Panasonic TV.

    I don't have any audio connection to my 3rd Gen AppleTV.

    My ARCAM irDac enabled Rotel Hi-Fi system is in the same room, so I wanna try and create a kindda surround sound with my airplay enabled systems ?

    Any advice...? comments most welcome...?


    Regards,
    Anthony

    No, I don't believe you can do more than one Airplay audio stream from an ATV. Under Settings->Airplay you can select other Airplay speakers to send the audio to, and you can get to this by holding down the Enter button when watching a movie on the ATV.

    Only iTunes has the option to send more than one Airplay audio stream, and I believe that can only be done with music (not movies).
