    After playing a video on Apple TV via iPhone the volume controls disappear and don't re-appear until after switching music back to iPhone and then switching back to ATV; unable to control using physical buttons on iPhone.

    I may be wrong, but I think that is by design.

    Also, if the remote app has been inactive for a period or I've moved away from my ATV the app has to be manually killed otherwise it says it is connecting and then it connects but then shows the attached in an indefinate loop.

    Having had three ATV's I'm getting fed up with their "quirky features".... Latest update hasn't helped.

    It depends on how your Apple TV is setup to do audio output. If it does optical out, there is no ability to change the volume on that output type.

    It's connected via HDMI and the point I was trying to make was that audio controls are available but after playing a video they disappear, even if I've switched back to audio.

    In that case, it may be a bug. Have you filed a bug report with Apple about it?

    I too have noticed the volume slider does not always behave as it should. In my case, it seems to hang around even though it should be gone during video Airplay.

    Sometimes it's a device issue, and is fixed with a simple reboot (try both iPhone and Apple TV). If that's not the case, then file it under "bug."
