This worked for me on Windows 7 with iTunes version 10.1.1 and aTV 4.1.1 . Thanks so much!!atv2g, iPhone 4, iOS 4

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 5, 2011 12:18 PM (in response to zengo)My APTV2 4.1.1 would not play audio from iPhone 4 4.2.1 or iTunes 10.1.2 on OSX 10.6.6 but would play video from iTunes and Photos from iPhone 4. I tried restarting my iPhone, Linksys WRT54G router and putting the APTV2 to sleep and woke it up again - problem persisted.
I finally pulled the plug on APTV2 and it worked for me. I am guessing that resetting the APTV2 via the remote (hold down and menu for six seconds) would do the trick too.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 20, 2011 4:37 PM (in response to Shane Scott)This was EXACTLY the information I needed to get iTunes to play over AirPlay to my Apple TV. I've been digging around here and there on and off for three days trying to solve this problem. I was just about to give up when I ran across this post. I figured it was just obscurely bizarre enough to work, and BLAMMO! It did magnificently!
Thanks for cross-posting here. Now if I could just get Hulu Plus on my Apple TV I'd be REALLY happy.iMac 2.8GHz Intel Core i7, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 18, 2011 4:58 PM (in response to mogg851)Odd. The opposite action worked for me. AirPlay wouldn't connect from my computer to my Apple TV, though "HomeSharing" worked. I checked IPv6; it was turned off. I changed to "Configure IPv6" Automatically, and AirPlay started working. I hope this doesn't mess up some other network connections.MacBook Pro, iMac G5, iPhone 4, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

Turning off IPv6 did the trick on my Mac mini and Apple TV.

Thank goodness I found this thread. I've been fighting this for weeks! Turning off ipv6 on my Macbook Pro (Winter 2010) did the trick. Now I can play music throughout the house from my upstairs computer!

So people; when you have problems with iTunes not connecting to your Airtunes maybe you can try the following:
1. Open System Preferences
2. Open Network pane
3. Select Airport in the left list
4. Click the Advanced button
5. Go to the TCP/IP tab
6. Set the "Configure IPv6" field to Off.
7. Click "OK"
8. Click "Apply"
9. Let iTunes connect to you're Airtunes speakers
