Skype, Apple TV & Mirroring

My Apple TV mirroring works fine with everything except Skype. I can see all my contacts on my TV screen, I can even see the call going through but as soon as they answer it drops out. The Skype connection is still ok on my iPad. I've updated all my software but nothing seems to work for me. Ive seen it working fine for other people so I know it's compatible. Any help / advice appreciated!

It does the same for me. iPad3 and latest update Apple TV V3.

 

Mirrors fine up to when the contact accepts the call, then the TV goes back to the Apple TV menu.

 

BUT if you do this it starts working again. When the call is accepted and the TV goes back to the Apple TV menu, then bring up the mirroring menu on the iPad AGAIN and start mirroring AGAIN. At that point, you will see your contact on the TV.

 

Not sure what is going on. Obviously Skype does not correctly support the proper video mode for Apple TV full screen, but why does it drop out of mirroring???

 

Let us know if this fix works for you.
