    Found something interesting on AppleTV (3rd Gen)

    I was streaming a film from my computer to AppleTV using iTunes (homeshare) OSX 10.8.4, my dad decided to open up Firefox, which had a video playing on the website - some NBC news website

    Video on AppleTV stopped playing and I got just the voice from the video from the website

    Can anyone confirm that they can replicate this

    Similar situation but using an iPad. I don't know if it's a bug because AirPlay is just using the most current feed. Someone else may be able to confirm its a bug. It's probably good that your dad wasn't viewing something seedy. :eek:

    I couldn't get mine to do this. I'm using a mid 2010 MBP 13 with Lion and an ATV 2.

    I've noticed something similar happens when I'm Airplaying from the Plex app on my iPhone and I open a game or something that includes sound. It'll play both audio streams.

    I've found if I set my ATV to 1080 to my Sharp Aquos it kills the EPG and broadcast digital TV stations.. I can't seem to change the channel to a working TV station.

    Though in 720P no issues...
