Found it on appleinsider discussing the ios6 beta. Airplay does not support 5.1 surround so you must turn off Dolby Digital in Audio & Video settings. Have not yet tried as I'm not home but I have the same issue. Sounds like the fix as long as nothing changed after release.

Thanks for the suggestion. It didn't do the trick for me, but I did notice that I get much better / more authentic volume when playing music from the Apple TV to the AirPlay speakers, so I'm assuming that it may have something to do with the video apps.
I know Apple only recently introduced the capability in a recent update, so perhaps it hasn't been perfected yet?

Just posted solution in the other thread too, but I'll put it here too since this is a specific thread:
When you are watching or listening to content in an airplay friendly app, you can press and hold select, then a dialog will pop up. When you are in an audio app, the speaker option is clear - when in a video app (like Netflix) there are two menu lists at the top i.e. 'subtitles' and 'speakers'. Either way, select it, them your desired speakers, and here you will see an audio level scrubber. Adjust, and enjoy!

You, Sir, are my favourite person of the day. I toast you with a cold beverage. Thanks!

Ha! Thanks, I was my own favorite yesterday when I figured it out, and did toast a cold beverage due to it. They sure didn't make it easy though, eh?

Nope, they sure don't! I'd have never figured that out by my lonesome and I make my living reviewing these products. Thanks again.
