Zwift Plays go dead but still show connected

I use ATV and therefore connect my Plays via the CA bridge. In general the connectivity is quite stable but sometimes, especially on longer rides the connection drops for a short time and reconnects itself. I’m still able to continue the ride I was involved in. However, the Plays then stop working altogether even though they still show as being connected. I’ve tried switching the Plays off and back on but they don’t work any further until I finish my ride and reconnect them t from the pairing screen.
Any suggestions on whether anything can be done, midride?
