    Hi Guys

    Hopefully you can help me with my issue. When we are going to have zoom.us conference call (similar to Skype) we Airplay to an AppleTV which is plugged into the TV so we can see the client on the big TV screen. Once we have started the call we will the leave our Macbook Pro idle and after about two minutes the Conference Room Display will pop up and kill the AirPlay connection, however the Macbook hasn't gone into sleep mode and there isn't an issue with the network connection.

    Seems to be that the Conference Room Display takes precedence over AirPlay which doesn't seem right?

    Does anyone know a fix for this without having to turn off Conference Room Display?

    Thanks

    Miles K

    Conference Room Display is for playing on more than one Apple TV at once. You might be better off not using it and just using Airplay normally.

    You couldn't be more wrong. You might want to do a bit of research on what the Conference Room Display option actually is.

    All Conference Room Display is is a just a special screen with instructions that tell how to connect to the AppleTV using AirPlay, nothing more. If you analyze the name Conference Room Display it is fairly easy to deduce that it is a Display that is designed for Conference Rooms. It is not anything different or more than AirPlay as it is still using the AirPlay protocol suite.

    Er, no. As per Apple's site, "You can use this display with multiple.. Apple TVs."

    That is bad wording on Apple's part. I have setup several AppleTV 3s and AppleTV 4s at conference rooms at work and am very familiar with how it works.
