iPad to Apple TV Videos Slow

Posted on 2012-08-27
Last Modified: 2012-09-14
I got an iPad 3 , and also an Apple TV connected to a Sony TV with HDMI.  Apple TV is connected to network with Ethernet , not wireless.

When trying to play a video from the iPad to the TV ... it lags a lot , takes 1-2 minutes to buffer 30 seconds of video (maybe 1 minute of video).

What can I try to increase performance / decrease lag?
Thanks all in advance.

    1-check for update for the apple tv they solve this issue
    2-play with screen size in apple tv , probably its configured as wide screen
    you can also reduce the resolution there

    last thing check your cables. ethernet and HDMI cable, maybe there is physical issue
    and try using another TV maybe your sony is not recognising the source as well .

    plz update if this help :)
