I have a 3rd gen Apple TV that I connect to my Mac, but I have issues with Airplay Display, namely that videos I try to stream from my Mac lag terribly.

I recently obtained a Time Capsule which I use as a router, but I would like to know if I can somehow connect it to my Apple TV, i.e. play videos stored on the Time Capsule hard disk.

I was also told that connecting my Apple TV to Time Capsule would improve the streaming speed and resolve the lag problem.


Hardwiring the apple tv to the TC does refuce the lag cr wifi, but won't change any download lag.

Have mine hardwired and no issues...

  • How do I hardwire it? Just plug it to the back of the TC? – user250630 Aug 7 '17 at 17:27
  • Use the networking sockets that both have. If you have other devices next the apple tv then get a small router box. – Solar Mike Aug 7 '17 at 17:28
