Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2009 4:44 PM (in response to Frank Patrick)I tried the process explained here http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1451
But it created a new second library and my HD was not big enough. So I decided to:
1) Delete my library
2) Change the iTunes Media Folder Location to an external HD with ample space
3) I dragged and dropped my entire library back into iTunes
4) I waited for everything to copy
Voila: it worked.MBP C2D 2.4 Ghz, 4GB RAM, 3200GB HD, 1 TB and 160GB External HDs, Mac OS X (10.5.4), PowerMac G4 DP 1.42 Ghz , 2GB RAM, 120/160 GB HDs
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2009 4:47 PM (in response to Winston Churchill)Perhaps, but the sequence of events is as followed:
1) I updated to iTunes 9.0.2
2) Had no problem with itunes or Apple TV
3) Next day I updated ATV to 3.0
4) I immediately had problems with streaming video to ATV from iTunes
If it wasn't the ATV update that prompted the issue, I am at a loss to explain. It is the only change I know of that I made prior to the issue.MBP C2D 2.4 Ghz, 4GB RAM, 3200GB HD, 1 TB and 160GB External HDs, Mac OS X (10.5.4), PowerMac G4 DP 1.42 Ghz , 2GB RAM, 120/160 GB HDs
Currently Being ModeratedNov 2, 2009 2:09 PM (in response to Christopher_Hull)It must have been the 3.0 update...
As I stated before: I never had this problem before...
After going back to factory settings on the ATV and reinstalling 3.0, after rebuilding my iTunes library, I still had the same problems on the same (in my case 7) moviefiles.
I pulled these trough my Elgato Turbo.264 HD, reimported them into iTunes and finally my ATV is happy.MacBook Pro 15inch, Mac OS X (10.6.1), iTunes 9.0.2, AppleTV 3.0
Currently Being ModeratedNov 2, 2009 3:08 PM (in response to Christopher_Hull)I have started running into this problem ever since "upgrading" to Apple TV 3.0.
Powering the Apple TV off and on, then restarting iTunes seems to do the trick but seriously... this is really annoying.iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 3, 2009 3:16 AM (in response to Adam van Gaalen)I'm not convinced it was the 3.0 upgrade, since I was having this problem prior to it. My memory suggests it was more related to iTunes 9.
I'll give a shot at rebuilding my iTunes library, however, and see what happens.Mac OS X (10.6.1), 60g iPod Video (5G)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 18, 2009 7:42 PM (in response to Winston Churchill)What a very unhelpful post.
And since the AppleTV and iTunes depend upon each other, yes, it was a part of the problem.Several, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 19, 2009 6:32 AM (in response to Peter Coleman)I really have no idea what you are talking about. Until your post above you haven't even participated in this discussion. The link I posted wasn't even intended for you, I wasn't even aware that you existed at the time. If you want people to help you, you at least need to say something about your problem, although you may need to approach the matter more politely if you want people to respond.MP 2 x QC Xeon 3 Ghz, 12 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 20, 2009 12:39 PM (in response to Christopher_Hull)I had this same problem before the update, but since 3.0 it has been ridiculous. I am able to get my streaming working by going to Settings>Computers>Add New Library. I don't add any new library but it seem to re-establish my live connection with iTunes. It is a lot faster than rebooting the ATV or my media server but is still a hassle. Hope this helpsMBP 15' MBP 13" 3 Apple TV's MacMini, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 23, 2010 8:59 AM (in response to Christopher_Hull)I have the exact same problem with my iMac and Front Row - it's not just limited to AppleTVs.
Probably a problem at the server end... so you'll just have to wait until Apple fix it.iMac 24" 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6), Macbook 2.4GHz, Apple TV, iPhone 3G, Mac Mini, AEBS (plus 2 x AX)
