I picked up ATV4 during the Black Friday sales (actually four days of sales through Cyber Monday it seems) and it's quite an upgrade from my old ATV2.

Couldn't get WeatherCat for Apple TV to recognize my wx station on "Local" even though it displayed data from the trixology test addresses OK. Verified that I had WeatherCat Server Client Connection enabled (I did) but still no local connection.

Went to System Prefs --> Network -->TCP/IP tab and clicked "Renew DHCP Lease." That did the trick and everything's fine now...the Local network is being recognized and station data is displayed properly.

Don't know if renewing the DHCP lease might help folks in that "Cannot Connect" thread (http://athena.trixology.com/index.php?topic=1597.0) but it might be worth a try if the upgrade to El Capitan didn't solve the problem.

Thanks for the tip. (This forum continues to impress me with how helpful the members are.)

Which AppleTV do you have? You need the latest version which can run apps via tvOS.

I Have Apple TV 4, Latest one I think 32gb Model...
I'll Check the APP-STORE thing again, but was thinking, maybe NOT in the Store here?...
I have iPad/and iPhone versions but even iTunes does not see it from my iMac..

We were given a new model for Christmas. Haven't used it enough to explore the app "Store" on yet. I'll probably just explore Screen Sharing with my iMac so I get see my web site on a larger than iPad screen! ;)

Not to Sound Stupid, but I'm not even sure HOW to share a screen yet....
Waiting for a USB-C cable to come in here to side load something I'd been playing with and see if it works at all..
Never been a big TV person, but kinda nice to see some APPS run in a bigger screen.
Here, a Samsung 13" flat screen.. LOL
It's as big as I can fit on top of the Radios..

Mirror your iOS device to an AppleTV.

Mirror your Mac's screen to an AppleTV.

Never been a big TV person
Reverse the digits on your 13" screen and you'll be within a couple of inches of ours! We have a combo ventless fireplace/TV cabinet built into a corner of the "den". In the master bedroom is a 20+ year old furniture that holds the TV and the "stereo" gear that no longer functions. Also in there is at least one DVD player (I have no idea if it still functions!). Never had a "blu-ray" thingy.

Since my WC runs on a mini and my actual desktop is already crowded enough, I just access it via Screen Sharing" when I need to 'make contact' with the app. Ii's also handy when my wife asks me what she should do in some app on her MBP. I just look at her screen on mine and even move the cursor, if needed. ;)

I'll take a look at those links, Toby. But, after all, "It's a Mac, there is no step 2!"
