    Problem Connecting Library
    My Apple TV has a big problem connecting to my library.

    Often times, I have to perform a power cycle for my library to be recognized.

    Needless to say, it's a big hassle.

    Has anyone run into the same problem? I don't imagine there is an easy solution.

    I have already called Apple, and they suggested I call back if the problem persists. They'll be hearing from me soon.

    Thank you in advance for all replies.

    Peace.

    Specs:
    21" iMac 2.9Ghz 16GB RAM - 10.11.3, iPhone6s & iPad Air 2 - iOS 9.2.1, ATV 4Th Gen tvOS, ATV3
    Maybe try found a hard reset and then via Airport Utility setting it up again. I had problems with my AE and this was the only way that I could get it to recognize the AE Network !!!
    Just a suggestion but it worked wonders for me

    Cheers

    4.1 Mac Pro. 15" MBP. 13" MBP. 17" PB. PM G5. iPhone 6S+ 64gb Gold. Apple Watch 42mm.
    I have that problem, its happens when Itunes sits idling too long with it connected to the appletv. I just quit itunes and restart it. Unless there is another problem.

    Do you have a good connection wherever you have the appletv(assuming you are using wifi) placed?

    I had something similar which I described here: http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/app...libraries.html

    For me I found the appleTV can't wake sleeping computers OR sleeping external harddrives. It has been ok since then for me.

    Isn't there a checkbox in Energy Saver on all Mac that allows network activity to wake the Mac?

    Yes. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work for appleTV network activity. Mine is checked but I still have the issue if I don't wake the drive.
