IOS, airplay to appleTV: cannot play audio

iOS and iPadOS

Hi all,

First post on this forum, so apologies if this should go in the AppleTV one.

I'm noticing an odd thing when trying to use Airplay from various IOS devices. I do the folllowing:

1. start the track/app whose audio I want to put out to other speakers;
2. Activate control centre and select "airplay".
3. in my list of devices, the AppleTv appears, however it seems to be only mirroring video. No audio is sent from the IOS device to the AppleTv.

Anyone seen this or know a fix?

Thanks a lot.

I remember having this problem in previous versions of iOS, but have not had it and iOS night. Make sure that the audio is not pause after you hit airplay to the Apple TV. Also you may want to check the volume. Sometimes the volume will be turned all the way down and you have to turn it up on the device. Hope that helps.

iOs remembers volume level for everything. It knows what your last speaker, headphones, and bluetooth setting was. It also knows your Air Play level. It is possible you have the volume on your phone all the way down when using Air Play. Try connecting to the Apple TV, and then use the volume keys to increase the volume on the phone, or iPod.
