    Has anyone else run into this issue? I have multiple Apple TV's showing up in the Airplay part of Control Panel.

    The odd thing is that on macOS Sierra this does not happen and everything shows up normally.

    This was a real issue several years ago - in the Mavericks => Yosemite release time frame, if memory serves. The issue had to do with a change to the way networking was handled internally. That issue mainly affected computers... don't recall seeing other devices like AppleTVs affected.

    Will poke around and see if I can find any of those threads.

    UPDATE: Found this thread...

    That's the strangest thing is that I thought they fixed all that.

    Another odd thing is that my girlfriends iPhone 6 doesn't do this. We are both on iOS 10.0.2 but it's just my iPhone 7 that has this issue.
