    I can not figure this out and it is driving us crazy.

    We use our iMac as a "TV" in our kitchen (watch movies and TV shows through iTunes). One time about a week ago I wanted to send what I was watching on the iMac to our appleTV in the living room. So I used Airplay through iTunes and it worked well.

    The problem is that ever since when we try to watch anything on the iMac (using iTunes) it defaults to airplay (and always to the living room ATV). So you have to use the airplay drop down in iTunes to bring it back to the iMac.

    Please help, why does iTunes default to this everytime.

    I have looked through every setting in iTunes i can find but there is no place to "pick" what you want to use as the default airplay speaker.

    This is very annoying at this point, anyone have any ideas.

    Have you updated to iTunes 10.3.1 and seen if that makes a difference?

    I think so, I will check when I get home but I always upgrade when it is available.
