Evaluation updates:

  • A major milestone from Apple of Apple TV Software update 6.1 removed the require of device discovering thru Bonjour.  http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4448
    Adds support to allow an AirPlay device to discover Apple TV over Bluetooth in environments where multicast or Bonjour traffic is blocked on the network or the AirPlay device is on a different subnet. Requires iOS 7.1 or later on iPhone 4s or later, iPad (3rd generation or later), iPad mini (1st or 2nd generation), or iPod touch (5th generation) and Apple TV (3rd generation).
    This eases the network requirement of Bonjour gateway.
