    Can you tell is a little more about your problem please. For example are you able to see the movies but unable to play them or can you not see them at all. What steps have you taken to try to resolve this, if any.

    How did you try to connect your Apple TV to your iTunes library. In your opening thread you mentioned homesharing, homesharing has nothing to do with the Apple TV 1. Instead you connect to your iTunes library from the Apple TV in settings > computers > connect to iTunes.

    Does your iTunes media folder location in the iTunes preferences >advanced, point to the correct location for your content.

    Navigate to Settings > Computers > Your Library on the Apple TV, you may be told you will lose all synced content, but you can sync it back afterwards, you won't lose any purchased content that has yet to be transferred. Then select Settings > Computers > Connect To iTunes, note the passcode that appears on screen, click on the device in iTunes and enter the passcode when prompted.
