Using the Maestro 50 with an Apple TV
Posted by John Cook on 02 September 2014 12:43 PM

To set-up your Maestro 50 to play audio content from your Apple TV you have to:

- connect the Maestro 50 to the Apple TV via a Toslink cable

- set the audio input source of the Maestro 50 to Optical Input (the lower position of the input selector switch)

- make sure that the Dolby Digital feature of the Apple TV is set to either Auto or Off. This particular setting can be found under [Main Menu] -> Settings->Audio & Video

Dolby Digital is not supported by the Maestro 50 and setting it to ON will result in corrupt output.

The playback volume, when playback is initiated via the Apple TV directly, can only be controlled from the Volume knob on the Maestro 50. If playback is triggered from an iPad or iPhone  (via AirPlay) then the volume can be adjusted via the volume setting on the control device.
