Problem having ATV (1G) audio play to Airport Express connected speakers

I've had some difficulties trying to have my ATV (1st Gen) act as a jukebox and play its audio on speakers connected to an Airport Express. When I select the remote speakers on the ATV it attempts to connect to them, spins for a while, and then gives up. The same speakers work fine if I remotely connect to them from a Mac running iTunes instead. I'd really like to use this feature with the ATV since it is always on and I can control it from anywhere on my network using my iPhone.
Anyone else having any success using the ATV to play to remote speakers?

You are mistaken. The Apple TV (1st Gen) can stream music to an Airport Express over AirTunes. It is selectable in the ATV settings display, and in the Apple Remote iPhone application, and I've successfully done it before. However, it does not always connect to the speakers properly, whereas a Mac running iTunes has no problem.

  • HT201335 I want to watch an iTunes rental video on my MacBook Pro but stream the sound to my Airport Express linked speakers.  However re Airplay icon doesn't show up in iTunes when playing the rental video.  Is there a way around that?

    I want to watch an iTunes rental video on my MacBook Pro but AirPlay the audio to my AirPort Express linked speakers.  However the AirPlay icon isn't available when arching the rental video in iTunes.   Is there another way?  Do I need to but an AppleTV?  I don't own a TV, hence why I want to watch on my MacBook Pro.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    With or without an Apple TV you can't send video to one device and audio to another using AirPlay.

  • Play music from internet over aiport express connected speakers

    I am playing my Itunes music via Airport Express over connected speakers successfully. Is it also possible to play music from internet over these airport express connected speakers? For example playing the sounds of a video over the speakers which are connected to the Airport Express? Thx in advance for any helpfull suggestions.

    Does Airfoil do what you want?

  • Play DVD with audio sound via Airport Express speakers

    Is it possible to play my DVD with audio sound via my Airport Express speakers?
    I can play music with iTunes trough these speakers, it would be nice if I can hear my DVDs aswell.
    iMac intel core duo   Mac OS X (10.4.7)  

    Not using Front Row.
    The real issue here is that audio and video stream at different speeds and it is hard to maintain sync. You know how when you hit play within iTunes it takes a while for the song to start through the speakers? It's the same with the DVD. So you'd need to work an offset into the audio when playing a DVD and it's not an exact science.
    You can download VLC player and mess around with the offset, then you'll also need a program like Airfoil to be able to force audio through the airport express.
    Good luck!

  • Problems trying to change frequency band on Airport Express

    I'm trying to solve drop-out issues, when playing music from I-tunes etc over airport express connected to stereo, by changing frequency band and channel on my Time Capsule-router with Airport Utility.
    My problem is that I changed it to 5Ghz, and when it restarted my Imac said it could not be found. My wireless network disappeared from Airport menu.
    I could still see network it on my macbook, and Airport utility on macbook could also see it, apparently not registering any problem. However when I tried to connect to actually connect to wireless network I was asked for my password, which was then refused several times.
    I was eventually able to able to access TC in Airport utility on my macbook by connecting to it by ethernet cable. I tried changing band to 2.4 Ghz, with same results (asked for password, which was refused).
    Finally, when I restored original basic 8.2.11n setting, all returned to normal.
    However, I'd like to try to solve my drop-put problems by remedies proposed elsewhere in forum, such as changing frequency band and channel. Does anyone know why I am having this problem changing frequency band and channel. My imac (which could not see TC on 5Ghs is pre-intel, mac-book has intel, both OSX 10.5.8.
    Also, are there settings changes I can try to improve drop-out issue. I've heard of something called interference robustness, for example?

    Thanks for reply. I tried again changing frequency to 2.4 as suggested, but the problem was the same. Airport Utility reports it cannot find device. Then, when I try to connect to wireless network anyway, a box comes up telling me to enter password. I do this and I get the message "connection failed".
    Fortunately, I am able to wire my macbook into Time capsule by ethernet cable, and change it back to original setting, and all is well.
    I did succeed in changing channel, but still on the 8.2.11n setting. However I would still have liked to see if I could improve drop-out issues by changing frequency band, if you have any more ideas about what could be wrong.

  • Can I play the sound form Apple TV via my airport express attached speakers?

    I have 3 x AirPort Express based speakers which I use for iTunes music playback.  I have today bought an Apple TV, which I would like to use to also play music to my AirPort Expresses.  Is that possible if so how? I can't see an option to use the Airport's as an output for the Apple TV audio.
    I will be very disappointed if this cannot be done. :-(
    Many thanks

  • ITunes shows time out error when trying to play on Airport Express.

    Time out error when trying to play on Airport Express. This started with an iTunes update, problems has to be with iTunes, Airport Express appears to be communicating fine, even shows when speakers are not connected.

    Same here, though on XP. Have tried cleaning registry, reinstalling, deleting preferences. Created a new user with no library and I have the problem there, too, so it's not the library.
    Is there no one to call about this??

  • Problems Printing: Airport Express connected HP Laserjet M1319f

    I have an Airport Express connected via ethernet to my network.  Attached to it is a HP LaserJet M1319f MFP printer, via USB.  I can get my iMacs and my Windows systems to print to the printer without a problem. 
    I would like to be able to print logs to it from my OS X Server (10.6.7), which is located quite a distance from the printer.  So far, I've had absolutely no luck configuring the Airport-attached printer and getting it to work.  From what I've been able to figure out, OS X Server expects any remote printer that it attaches to, to be attached via IPP, TCP/IP, or via Windows.  It doesn't seem to want to discover and use the printer via Bonjour.
    Any ideas on how I can make this work?  Am I missing something obvious?

    See if these guides help, it sounds like a driver issue. Does the printer work correctly when directly connected to the PC?
    Ensure that the Macs are not sharing the printer, as this is not needed and the PC should be able to find the printer on the AX.

  • Can I strem audio to my airport express? but not only iTunes

    Can I stream audio to my airport express? but not only iTunes. where can I suggest to Apple make some about it?

    Hello keer. Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
    Can I stream audio to my airport express? but not only iTunes.
    Yes. To stream audio, other than from an iTunes source, to an AirPort Express Base Station (AX) you will need a third-party product, like Rogue Amoeba's Airfoil.
    where can I suggest to Apple make some about it?
    You can submit suggestions to Apple at the following link: Apple Product Feedback

  • I have an Airport Express connected via optical toslink to a dac/amp in turn connected to speakers. When using iTunes I get message "no speakers connected to Airport Express" and audio sound has drop outs.

    I have an Airport Express connected via optical toslink to a dac/amp in turn connected to speakers. When using iTunes I get message "no speakers connected to Airport Express" and audio sound has drop outs.

    Ok, if you are connecting the AirPort Express Base Station (AX) to the existing wireless network, then the DSL in the next room is most likely a combination DSL modem and wireless router. Thanks for clarifying that for me.
    Although they may only be separated by a single wall, the building material used in that wall may be enough to prevent the AX from receving a "good" signal from the DSL router.
    Since I don't know what computing equipment you have available, please check out this AirPort User Tip: AirPort - Optimal Base Station Placement to see if you can get some SNR measurements at the location of your AX. To do this properly, you will want to power-off the AX and only get these measurements for the DSL router.

  • Time Capsule with (2) AirPort Express connection problem

    I have (1) Airport Time Capsule with (1) AirPort Express connected. I'm trying to connect another Airport Express but only get a yellow light on the 2nd Express. If I connect it with a ethernet cable I get a green light. How do I connect a 2nd Express?

    The 2nd Express needs to be about the same distance from the Time Capsule as the 1st cannot be closer to the 2nd Express than it is to the Time Capsule.
    The reason for this is that the Express will pick up the strongest signal and you want the Express to pick up the Time Capsule signal to be able to extend it.
    Then, start over as LaPastenague instructs on the 2nd Express and configure it again.

  • Had a Airport Express connected to my stereo and it was working.  I brought an Airport Extreme and suddenly it took over and Airport Express stopped working and disappeared from Airport Utility. What I am supposed to do?  ar2ro

    I have an Airport Express connected to my stereo and it was working without any problem.
    Recently I bought an Airport Extreme to use it as my Base Unit connecting it to my DSL.
    I followed the instructions of the Airport Utility, and it started working.
    Suddenly, problems started happen the Airport express that was connected to the stereo , stopped working and it disappeared from the Airport Utility area , as it did not exist in the network. I tried to reset it but it did not appear in the Airport Utility page.
    Apparently I have other problems with the private network that it created because I cannot use it because of problems with the password that was created.  I can only use the network that  I created for my guest...
    I dont know if my problem is a configuration problem or  there is problem with the equipment.
    I read that other users where having the same problem with the Airport express , using non apple equipment as their base unit , but I thought that using the Airport Extreme was going to be compatible and no problems would happen.
    What should I do?

    Common Problem. Common solution.
    Connect your Express via ethernet cable to the Mac while other network connections on the Mac are switched OFF.
    After the Express shows up, change the settings of the Express to join the existing network. Take the appr. settings.
    Unplug and reconnect your Mac to the network.
    Check if the Express shows up in Airport Utility
    Alternative solution:
    Hardreset the Express to factory settings
    (while on power push the Pin next to the audio plug with a paperclip. Plug out the Express still holding down the little button then replug the Express to power and release button)
    After that, the Express will show up in the Airport Utility.
    Make all needed settings.
    I would prefer the first solution, its easier just to plug a cat5 cable.

  • Why does 2 Airport Expresses connects to one another instead of connecting to the primary Airport Extreme For internet Connectivity ?

    I have Netgear DG834G router only for dsl connectivity wifi connectivity to that router is off. i have connected netgear that provides adsl connectivity to the  (Shakeel's Airport Extreme) Airport Extreme dual band Wireless N 5th generation via cat 5 cable so airport extreme is the main wifi device through which i get wifi signals at my home. now our house is big and i have installed the adsl netgear modem and airport extreme router at the same place in my room in the upper story but the signals are weak even in the upper story at the other end of the house so i have installed the new airport express dual band wireless N in the upper story (Kafeel's airport express) and it is connected to the primary airport extreme  (Shakeel's Airport Extreme) wireless router in range extention mode it repeats the same ssid. Our ground floor has another airport express dual band wireless N the new one ( Lounge's airport express) signal was weak there so i installed another airport express (Lounge's Airport Express) their and configured it to extend the range of primary router airport extreme  (Shakeel's Airport Extreme) in the upperstory with the same ssid. Now the problem i am facing that sometimes lounge's airport express connects to kafeel's airport express instead of connecting to the airport extreme and the signals in lounge are weak because all the devices are connected to kafeels airport express and does not connect to lounge air port express. but when lounge airport express is connected to primary router airport extreme then everything works fine devices connect to lounge airport express and signals are full. i have took pictures of the problem i am facing you will understand better by having a look at it. In normal working setup both the airport expresses are connected to airport extreme which is shown in this picture
    The second picture shows when lounge airport express is connected to kafeels airport express and not the airport extreme (Shakeel's Airport Extreme) this is the problem.
    isnt there a way to correct this so that they dont connect with each other and connect to the airport extreme ?

    Lounge's AirPort Express must be located signficantly closer to Shakeel's AirPort Extreme than it is to Kafeel's AirPort Express, and there must be fewer obstructions in the signal path than the other possible connection.
    The reason is that if you want Lounge's AirPort Express to connect to Shakeel's AirPort Extreme, it must receive a significantly stronger wireless signal from Shakeel's AirPort Extreme than it does from Kafeel's AirPort Express.

  • Airport Express - Multiple speakers

    I have 3 airport express connected to 3 different stereo systems. When I use only one speaker, everything is ok. When I use 2 speakers, the signal stops for 2 seconds about every minute. When I use 3 speakers, signal stops for 2 seconds very frequently.
    On "advanced settings" of iTunes the streaming buffer is "large".
    Any idea to solve the problem ?

    I have experienced about the same problem with 2 AE´s.
    Never had the problem before upgrading to the multiple speaker
    option that came with one of thr itunes upgrades. But then I could only play one at a time, the idea is great but its no fun if the music stops every few minutes
    Have you been able to fix your problem ?
