• Mac Owners with OS X 10.9.2 Report Issues with AirPlay Functionality



    Following the release of Apple’s OS X 10.9.2 update, a number of users seem to have taken to Apple’s Support Communities forum claiming the latest version has “broken” AirPlay Mirroring and extending of desktops to external displays.

    For those of you who didn’t know, Apple released the latest Mac operating system version this past Monday to patch a variety of issues, including an SSL security flaw, erratic Mail behavior and SMB2 reliability. The update also added FaceTime Audio calling and iMessage user blocking.

    According to one of the forum threads titled “Airplay mirroring broke in 10.9.2,” users are seeing a slew of different failures. One of the users found AirPlay Mirroring was no longer a selectable option in the AirPlay menu. Others have been able to connect to their Apple TV but only audio is passed through in these cases. In addition to the mirroring faults, users detail problems with AirPlay’s desktop extension function.

    Many users were able to reproduce several of the described issues with various Apple devices running OS X 10.9.2. Issues included scaling issues on both the Mac and Apple TV, low frame rates, sporadic mouse freezing and video failures. Performing a hard reset on the devices including the wireless router proved to be ineffective and unstable to the point of being unusable.

    Have any of you encountered this issue?

      Wish I had an Apple TV to test this out. That's going to be annoying though as I rely on this feature a lot at school.

      I've noticed that 10.9.2 is just slower and more laggy overall. I think we need Steve to rise from the grave and chew some people out for a lot of the software mistakes the company has had in the last 6 months.

      Go get Beamer, it fixes all issues with Airplay, allows for AVI, MKV, or any other format and it's an app so you can actually still use your screen downside is it costs $10
