I’m staying in a hotel for a few days for a conference, and brought my MacBook Pro (running MacOS Ventura; v13.2) and Apple TV with me. Both are on the same Wifi network, and working properly (I can stream content on the AppleTV, and am creating this posting using my MBP), but I can’t see the Apple TV as an AirPlay device (in Control Center or Displays). When I’m at home, I have absolutely no problem connecting the 2 devices. Curious if anyone has any ideas on how to resolve this?
I use an Apple TV box when I visit clients. I make sure we are NOT on the same WiFi network. The later generation Apple TV will then offer an ad-hoc network for my iPad to talk to the Apple TV. The trick, as I understand it, is not to be on the same network but within Bluetooth range to set up the ad-hoc network.
