In our large auditorium, an A/V rack which contains an AppleTV 4 for use as an AirPlay device to our humongous projector, sits in the back of the room in a closet. The ATV4, with the latest tvOS, uses a combination of Bluetooth and Wifi to establish a Conference Room Display connection from an Airplay-enabed device (laptop, iPad, etc.)
Naturally, Bluetooth's limited range makes it impossible to connect with AirPlay from the presenter's lectern on-stage, being almost 150' distant from the ATV4. One can connect when in range of the ATV4, and then move the AirPlay-enabled device to the lectern, but that is extremely non-optimal.
I've searched for quite a while on how to disable this function, but it doesn't seem to be possible. I've also searched for Bluetooth extender devices, but they seem be designed to extend audio connections to BT headphones & whatnot.
Has anybody figured out how to disable the peer-to-peer Bluetooth AirPlay configuration and use just Wi-fi?
