I have tried restarting the appleTV, and my phone to no avail of fixing this issue. Any thoughts, it only drops the connection if I open up a game at the same time.

I'm experiencing the same problem. I've tried restarting the apple tv to no avail. I'm on the latest ipad app and the latest apple tv os. I am using the latest non-beta version of the server. However, this problem persists in both the mac server as well as the pc server (both are running the most up to date version of the non-beta server software).
I'm thinking about reverting back to the non-HD version because this is just frustrating!!

My apple tv is on ethernet. My ipad is obviously on wifi. My computer(s) (where the server software runs) is on ethernet.
This is a new development for me since I've upgraded to the newest and greatest HD version. So I'm attributing it to that... I have yet to downgrade back to the original Air Video. If it keeps happening, I might... haha... and I can report back my findings.
This happens for me when I'm watching videos (without playing any games).

More than anything thoug, I have been a long time user of Air Video and this used to never happen with the set up of Apple TV, Airplay and Air Video that I have. It has started to happen more frequently over the last 6 months or so.
Hopefully you can get this annoying issue to resolution. Please let me know how I can assist.

I am also getting this issue as of the last 2 weeks. I found that the first few minutes it continuously crashes every 1-2 minutes, then as it buffers further into the movie the issue stops. I am on ethernet 100% (server and Apple TV)...server is PC.

Checking in here with the same issue, really aggravating. ATV2, latest version. No jailbreaks on any system. Windows 8.1, latest server 1.0.11. Doesn't seem to matter which iPad I'm using (we have a 3rd gen and a new Mini) but all are up to date. I tested watching a converted stream just on the iPad and it works fine. Once Airplayed to ATV though, it starts right up, plays fine for a minute or two, then just stops. The paused video appears back on the iPad, and getting it to play nice with the TV again is a chore. Netflix streams fine so it's not a wifi or bandwidth issue.
Wasn't a problem until a couple weeks ago, and we've been using this & its predecessor for a couple years now.

Yes but the signal's still streaming through my wireless router - I'm just highlighting the fact that the wireless signal is good, therefore not the likely cause of the bugging out. Also the desktop housing the source movies is hardlined to that router.

Im also having this problem now.. i don't know exactly when it started to happen but it never happened vid the original Airvideo. My server is running 1.0.11 and the last time i watched a 2.5h movie the connection to the atv stopped 2-3 times.
Slightly of topic but during that movie the playback totally stopped working and i had to do a restart of the entire server to get it going? Getting quite a few hiccups whit AVHD

It happens on both Air Video HD and Air Video, also the you tube app and stream to me app which is like Air Video. I think it's a problem with Air Play itself, I have tried all of these apps with ios 7.0.4 and ios 7.1 beta 2 and it's the same, I'm just hoping this problem is apple and they know about it and are fixing it.

Apple TV 3 - latest firmware as of tonight (I updated before streaming)
Ipad air 4g latest released firmware
MacBook Pro with retina as streaming mac - latest server software
I streamed two episodes of 'the good wife' no problem.
The put on 'Gravity' and it lost connection to Apple TV 4 times over course of entire movie - destroying tension and ruining enjoyment.
I had the ipad on my lap and with the app running and I saw it lose connection - screen went from streaming image to frozen still of movie and then seconds later the Apple TV went back to menu.
All computers on wifi only. Not possible to use Ethernet. Wifi signal strong throughout.
This IS a problem.
