The problem is I'm unable to play my iTunes on the AppleTV through the remote speakers. It plays fine through the tv.
Maybe it's cause it's late. But I am so confused by this statement.

Let me see if I can clarify.
I have my iTunes logged on AppleTV. It plays on the actual television set without any issues. The problem is that I'd like the sound to also come out of remote speakers that are located in another room. I'd like to play iTunes simultaneously through both my television set & these remote stereo speakers.
I have an Airport Extreme Basecamp in the room with the tv. The remote speakers are connected to an Airport Express in the other room.
My partner's iTunes plays properly from his laptop (i.e. sound comes out of the television set in one room and out of the remote speakers in the other room). His iTunes is recognizing both the Airport Extreme Basecamp for the AppleTV and the Airport Express for the remote speakers, so it seems network connections are being made.
We tried logging onto his iTunes in AppleTV. He had the same problem that I did: from AppleTV he can play iTunes on the actual television set, but not from the remote speakers in the other room.
The other related problem I'm having concerns playing my iTunes from a desktop computer (located in the room w/ the remote speakers). Here, too, iTunes recognizes both networks (and I have them selected in iTunes' Mulitple Speakers window). In this case it seems to play, but the sound keeps dropping out. The sound only plays for a second or two.
I hope this makes more sense & that you have some helpful solutions. Thanks.

Ok it looks like you are trying to do something that isn't supposed to work that way.
You can play to multiple speakers using AIRPLAY.... but this is a totally different thing than using Home Sharing to access your iTunes library from your Apple TV.
