Currently Being ModeratedNov 29, 2010 7:05 PM (in response to Verne Mattson)I have been trying to stream from my iPad to an airport express with a set of harman pardon speakers connected to the AE via a USB cable. Airplay sees the AE network but I do not get any sound from the speakers. Anyone know why? Airplay works perfectly with my Apple TV 2 but it is not working with the Airport Express.IPad, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2010 7:15 AM (in response to Richard VDB)Help. I think I may be too old or just lost but I was under the impression that my ATV2 content could play wirelessly through AE. Is this true? If' it's supposed to I'm not having any luck.
can play music from itunes through AE beautifully.
Maybe I'm expecting too much. When I play a movie from netflix or apple, i was hopeful of hearing it through my stereo. NO?

Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2010 11:11 AM (in response to ieverything)I was thinking there must be something the Factory Reset was changing that could be done more easily. Here's what worked for me using AirPort Utility – under the Music tab, turn off AirTunes. Apply changes, and wait for AirPort Express to restart. Turn AirTunes back on and and restart again. Worked perfectly.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2010 6:58 PM (in response to supreme commander of wireless)Airplay worked fine from my iphone 3GS but not from my ipad. I solved the problem by enabling WMM (Wi-Fi multi-media) and Internet Access QoS on my netgear WNDR3700.Core i7 920, Windows 7

Also great to discover that Airplay audio works for the news application from the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation). This app streams radio and TV and the fact that Audio works could mean that the ABC may support Airplay video streaming for ABC iView (catchup tv) in future.iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 11, 2010 3:27 AM (in response to Richard VDB)Hi, the problem is solved regarding using AirPlay to Airport Express; however, only to connected stereo, not to Harmon Kardon loudspeakers. See new topic AirPlay, Airport Express and Soundsticks.
Thanks, RichadIMac & iPad, iOS 4

If anyone would like to know how to fix this, I discovered the answer.
I have no idea what IPv6 is and I care not, but apparently now, all of a sudden, Apple makes iTunes talk to Airport Express units using IPv6. However, it didnt bother to make the Airport Express units expect this first, so iTunes can see the Airport Express, but it cant talk to it.
Anyway, I found that you have to manually go into your Mac settings (scary stuff if you are a non technical person like me) and turn off IPv6.
To do this, go to "Finder > Go > Utilities > Terminal"
networksetup -setv6off Wi-Fi (hit enter)
networksetup -setv6off Ethernet (hit enter)
and magically your iTunes will talk to your Airport Express units again.
I presume at some point we will have to undo this as technology moves on and everything uses IPv6, so when that happens go into Terminal again and type
networksetup -setv6automatic Wi-Fi (hit enter)
networksetup -setv6automatic (hit enter)
Thanks Apple for that.
