Iomega boxee box missing airplay icon
I was wondering if anyone could offer me any assistance on setting up airplay on my Iomega tv?
I've enabled it in the settings and set it to the same wireless network that my ipad 2, iphone 4 and computer are using which is the 2.4ghz network from my Asus rt56u router.
But the airplay icon is not coming up on any of the devices, although i can use my macbook to connect to it on the network.
Does anyone have any ideas? I'm thinking maybe the router is the issue as it's the common element between all the devices.

First the easy one.
Do you have air play turned on in the boxee settings?

Then you may need to check if your router is setup for multi cast dns.
For an explanation on mutli cast dns see: http://support.apple.com/kb/TA20999
You need to make sure your router is configured for multi cast dns.

working now thanks!
Wasn't quite as simple as hitting enable on one thing though changed about 5 things that all had multicast in their titles to enabled or to auto from disabled. Not sure if i needed to change them all but i'm not changing them back to find out lol.
Thanks hopefully this can help anyone else with linksys problems.
