Bought 2 new apple tvs this month and haved loved them. Just downloaded the iOS 6 update on my phone have loved it...until I tried using it with my apple tv. It doesn't connect. All I get is sound with no picture. This is of course through the new YouTube app and not the old YouTube app that was removed with ios 6.  Anyone else with the problem and how can I fix it?


iPhone 4S, iOS 6

    My problem is slightly different, I've found out that you can get it to play on the screen by enabling mirroring. (Double click the home button and scroll left until you see the volume bar and next to it will be the airplay icon, tap it, turn on your Apple TV and also mirroring.) however, the problem that I have is that the quality is not that great depending on the video and there is major static and breakage in the sound  even though my wifi connection is strong and there is nothing blocking my Apple TV. It also takes forever to load. I agree with you @C.H.E I'm very disappointed and at this point I just want my iOS 5.1.1 back!!!

    This is disappointing! Why was we not made known about these LOSS features earlier.. what good does Apple AV Cable can do us if we cant watch youtube on our big screen TV? It's a day-light robbery!

    If the info is helpful for anyone:  The apple tv connection button on your iPhone are not present / visible on on iOS 6 unless the apple tv device is on.  Once it's on, the apple tv buttons on your phone will appear (double click home button and scroll left to the air button; the mirror option will also be there.)

    Have you all updated to the new iOS 5.1 for Apple TV?

    Yes, also noticed music fails to send album artwork to tv. There is a discussion thread on Apple TV section that indicates a bigger software issue.

    Since upgrading to iOS 6 my Apple TV won't connect to home sharing.  If i switch everything off and then on again, I will get maybe two songs worth of music, then the connection drops.  This is the same over wifi and Ethernet (I have Ethernet because of many many problems in the past wit apple tv and wifi).  This is pretty disastrous as now the only way I can watch anything is to go load it on iPad, then play it from there onto the TV.

     

    This is not the first time I have had problems when the iOS upgrades.  Why can't apple check Apple TV before upgrading?!

     

    iTunes ties you into a proprietary system.  I've been a very (very!) good customer, buying a lot of music, TV, films.  But the basic service delivery for Apple TV is appalling; constant problems over months and years.  I'm going on a mission to persuade others not to buy it.  It is a desperate product.

    I realized this morning that I have this problem too. After trying various methods in an attempt to get it working (mirroring worked, but that's a poor alternative), I found a solution.

     

    Rather than using the YouTube app, instead use your iPhone/iPad's Safari browser. Pull YouTube up on it, run a search and bingo.. it sends to AppleTV in fullscreen mode.

     

    It's not quite as effortless as the app used to be, but it's much better than the mirroring alternative. Hopefully they can get the app working properly again soon!

    Thanks for this, it has cured my problem with no picture on YouTube. Like you I assume the app needs work, or perhaps Apple is interfering with it! I'm really p* off with their attitude to Google. Apple maps is a joke - why not keep google maps till they get theirs right!

    Youtube app on iphone 5 only has audio on apple TV. I can send youtube video if I access youtube through safari browser. Hate the new maps, greatly disappointed in ios6. I spent $30 for a $2 power adapter and after I got home realized wouldn't work on docking station if the phone was in a case. Went back and paid $10 more for an adapter with a 6" wire and now my phone hangs off dock. I used to rave about Apple and was willing to pay the premium, now it may be time to check out the competition.

    I have the iphone5 6.1.3, I have updated my Apple TV and mirroring is working fine EXCEPT when playing videos I have taken with my phone. I can share photos, mirror, etc but when I try loading a video it sits there showing the first frame of the video. The status bar looks like its loading but the spinning wheel on the left keeps rotating. Nothing happens when you push play.
