I have recently purchased a new Apple TV after purchasing a new Macbook air.


At first had no trouble with Airplay, and was using my phone to watch trailers, however, I just tried to connect my new Air to Airplay, visual was perfect, but there is no audio. I have attempted turning my wifi on and of, and also changing the Dolby audio setting from auto - on - off, but neither options have worked so far.


Can someone please help me on this??

Apple TV, No Audio

    Morning Varmalis,


    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.


    For more information on this, take a look at this article:

    Using AirPlay



    Enabling AirPlay from iTunes on your computer

    To stream music or videos from your computer to an Apple TV or AirPort Express:

    1. Connect your computer and Apple TV to the same Wi-Fi network.
    2. Open iTunes (10.2 or later).
    3. Locate and click the HT4437-itunes-airplay_icon-001-mul.png icon in the bottom-right corner of the iTunes application.
    4. Select your Apple TV, AirPort Express, or AirPlay-enabled speakers or receivers from the list of available devices that appears, and begin playback.

    Note: The images of a TV screen HT4437_03--tv-001-mul.png or speaker HT4437_04--speaker-001-mul.png next to each AirPlay device in the AirPlay menu indicate the type of media content you can stream to that device.

    I have the same problem, I am streaming from my MacBook Air 2012 using Chrome and YouTube to my Apple TV V3 and I get the video fine, but there is no Audio, randomly after playing around a little bit I will get Audio but most of the time, there will be just silence. I tried rebooting the ATV and MBA but nothing, what's the soluciton when I am doing AirPlay Mirroring and not using iTunes for the NO AUDIO problem, thanks

    My cousin came around and together we conquered the Apple TV! The initial reason for it not working was I hadn't reset my laptop after the initial installation of the Apple TV.


    However, it stuffed up again. This time I found that if I closed the program I was using (VLC player) then opening it again while my laptop was connected to the Apple TV  the audio worked.


    Simple solution to what I assumed was a complex problem :)
