    I use a Mac Mini with 16gb ram as a home theater and recently updated it to Yosemite. I have an Apple TV 3 and since the update I have noticed recurring streaming issues. When streaming SD videos it's okay but anything that is HD will usually stop to buffer throughout the recording. Any suggestions? This seems to be the only change - the update to Yosemite.

    I'm having the same issue. Any 1080p content is painfully slow to load. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Unplug the ATV for a minute or so and try again. Quit and restart iTunes as well. This usually helps. If not, sign out of home sharing on ATV and Mini and reboot everything(router too). Sign back in and see what happens.

    No good. I did make some headway however. Doing a speedtest on my download speeds from the MacMini I'm streaming from, I have 25-30mbps speeds available while Elgato's eyeTV is running and 70-75mbps when it is not. It seems to make all the difference in the world when streaming to the AppleTV, although I can't figure out why running an application would impact in this manner.
