How long can Apple TV stream from a HK camera in iOS 17?

Cupertino, September 20, 2023

I've tried on two different Apple TVs and if I don't touch the remote, the stream from a HK camera will cut out after about 60 seconds. • I didn't time it exactly every time, but it went by in 55-65 seconds every time I tried it. • if I play with the remote, the time seems to increase. • streaming the same camera(s) to my iPhone doesn't have the same limitation - it may have one, but I haven't hit it yet. • tried on a 4th gen and a 1st gen 4k (both connected via ethernet) with identical results. It doesn't matter which ATV is the home hub (iOS 17 seems to *exclusively* prefer ATVs as home hubs so far.) • The results are the same regardless of which camera I selected ​​or if I'm using the multi-camera grid view. I did this all the time under iOS 16 and it never timed out - even after a few hours.
