[AirPlay][Warning] Don't update to iOS8 if you want AirPlay

Here's my experience with Kodi Beta on Android and iPhone 5/iOS8.1:

- Initially XMBC (localhost) is recognized as video device properly and videos/music play fine without any problems.
- After being idle for awhile and trying to connect again - it is recognized as audio only device and only sound is playing.

It gets solved after disabling/enabling AirPlay in Kodi settings a few times.
Not sure if it's documented anywhere (other than in threads like this) but I don't think Airplay currently works correctly on Android devices because the 10 second re-announcement hack doesn't work for Android.

So I wouldn't expect it to be working reliably (always detected as a video device) any time soon on Android unfortunately.
