Apple TV not found by airparrot 3

Questioner General

I have a 2019 Apple TV 4K. Up to date. I have a windows 10 PC. I want to mirror.



I purchased airparrot 3. It saw the apple TV fine right after install.



I then purchased the trial full. One day later, air parrot no longer sees the apple TV. My iphone does just fine.



All software is up to date. Nothing changed. No norton or macaffee, no firewalls. NOTHING CHANGED.



Apple TV does not show up as a device.



So I downloaded 5K player. NO Apple TV found.



NO AIRPLAY DEVICES FOUND. Scanning goes forever.



Same network. Same subnet. SAME SAME SAME. The IPs are only a few numbers off.



The same device was found and worked fine for 3 days.



NOW? Nothing is found.



I changed nothing.



No updates happened in this time. I rebooted ONLY after nothing else worked. Rebooting did not fix the issue.



NO third party app can SEE my Apple TV. Only my phone can and it mirrors fine.



HELP !!

Please contact Airparrot for support on their product. If everything else is working okay on your Apple TV then you need to in touch with the developers of the app that is not working.

Perhaps you missed the FACT that the other app, 5K Player cannot see the Apple TV either.



This is NOT, therefore, an app issue. It is an Apple TV issue blocking somehow these diverse 3rd party apps from being seen.



And perhaps you missed the FACT that the airparrot DID see the apple TV once, for a few days, until it suddenly STOPPED being detected.



I am checking to see if this issue with apple TV and other apps or users has been observed, perhaps some setting, perhaps some corruption? Something changed and it was NOT on the app, the PC or the network.



Leaving the apple TV as the likely problem.



Also, it is a KNOWN ISSUE in the past the apple changes how things work without telling anyone. So, these are the nature of the inquiry.
