I love XBMC, but I need an Airplay that work 100% of the times!

I've tried XBMC under Win7 and Win 8.1, iTunes or Bonjour installed. Airplay is really flaky and does not work most of the times with my iPad, iPhone or girlfriend iPhone. We are using iOS7+.

Now, I am willing to build the perfect environnement for Airplay to work perfectly fine. However, I am considering a computer build before and Apple TV, Ouya or another device.

- What XBMC version do I need ?
- What OS do I need ?
- What apple service do I ?
- What hardware may I need ?
