Did you give them unique names?

Yeah

Living room = Living room TV
Bedroom = Bedroom TV

But then they have numbers when I look at the name on ariplay, those numbers increase everytime I look.

its like they're adding themselves onto the network, but theres still a trace of them previously on there so they stick a number on the end.

Sounds like your router is reissuing an ip to them and not removing the old ip from the dhcp list

i believe you just have atv3's correct? and are they hardwired? ive had the same issue when i allowed my atv3 to sleep. I removed sleeping and not only does it not keep adding numbers to its name but it instantly connects to homesharing now via wireless.

adding a DHCP reservation in your router should clear this up also.
