    Every sound that plays from my laptop when Im watching ATV goes through the ATV. It stops the show I'm watching and plays a sound yet Im not even connected to the ATV. Ive restarted both and logged in and out of Apple ID but it persists. Also when my cell phone rings, it plays on my ATV. This is getting frustrating because for example if I am watching a show but open a youtube video on my laptop it stops my show and plays sound through the TV with the ATV still showing as disconnected. Does anyone have any idea what the heck is going on

    Go into your sound settings in preferences. I'm guessing your main output source is set to the ATV?
