Hey guys!

I've got the new iPad and apple tv 3 which is great together!

I have a receiver (which is located in the living room)  with Zone2 option and also have outdoor speakers which are connected to that Zone2.

When I sit outside i want to use my great speaker system and use the outdoor speakers using AirPlay and ATV and stream the content to my ATV but the thing is that when i do that I lose my video on the device and the tv (which is in the living room) shows my video feed.

That of course is a problem coz I enjoy my great speakers but can't watch the video (like YouTube video or something else)...

Is there a way to stream the sound only to the ATV?

I found discussions of people who don't manage to stream their video to the ATV and only managed to stream their sound but that was an error and things like firmware update solved their problem...

Found no discussions of people who TRY to stream only the sound, like I want to...


Does anyone have an idea that can solve my problem?


Thanks a lot in advance!!!


iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi + Cellular, iOS 5.1.1
