Confirmed that it also fixes airplay from ios 6.1.x clients. Added to backports.


Confirmed that this patch fixed playing audio via AirPlay on the iPad 3 running iOS6.1.2, the MacBook Air running OSX 10.7.5 and the MacBook Pro Retina running OSX 10.8.2

I did have to disable the Wi-Fi IPv6 support through console (networksetup -setv6off Wi-Fi) on the laptops because they were getting connect errors with IPv6.

The only issue im still having is that I am not able to set my system audio output to XBMC on OSX 10.7.5 while this is working perfectly on OSX 10.8.2
