    I have updated my iPhone 4 and iPad 2 to iOS6, and both can access home sharing, but only show up with a handful of my songs. Tried all the above suggestions and none worked. Gutted - need a fix asap.

    On IOS in the music preferences/Home sharing sign out and sign in again.


    Worked for me

    I have tried everything that everyone here has suggested and no luck using an iPad3 to a PC running XP Pro.

    Same problem here using Windows Vista Home. iPhone 4, iPad2, Apple TV and iTunes 10.7. Apple TV 5.1 fix?


    Seems like everytime I click on Done after creating the Home Share in iTunes Home Sharing crashes. If I sign in/out works for a little while. Think this same problem Home Sharing problem existed in previous iTunes version. Was hoping it would be fixed in iTunes 10.7. Maybe a limit on the number of devices supported under Home Sharing?

    ScopeGuy45 & All,


    Similar experience with Home Sharing on iPad 2 following iOS 6 upgrade.

    Able to access "share" library from VIDEO app but none of my movies in iTunes are visible.

    Instead, a black screen telling me I can purchase movies from iTunes Store.

    Also able to access share library from MUSIC app but only able to see (and play) 63 songs of 5,000+ songs.


    Sanity check on iPad 1 running iOS 5.1 - Home Sharing works normally - no glitches noted.

    Able to access both VIDEO and MUSIC libraries on iPad 1.




    iTunes 10.7

    Win 7 Pro

    Dell Desktop


    iOS 5.1 on iPad 1

    iOS 6.0 on iPad 2

    May need to create a bonjour exception in windows firewall manually for UDP port 5353.

    Tried that too. No go.

  • tpharrington Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Already tried Bonjour exception.  Did not work for me either.


    Hope we hear from Apple tech soon!  They must know this is widespread if not occuring for everyone.

    Thank you for working this issue and keeping us up to date on what you hear. I could not express my feelings about this better than you did.  Well done!


    A sincere Thank You!

    Great post again Larry. I'm sure we all appreciate your efforts, and definitely your sentiment.


    I will attempt contact with them again this morning. Is there any way you could post any contact info (i.e. #'s) that you've used. I've been unable to locate a number...


    Thanks again,

    I love this story about Jobs and love to imagine his reaction to the bugs in iOS6.


    In regard to MobileMe:


    After reports of crashing servers, laggardly logons, and general crappiness, Jobs tongue-lashed the MobileMe team, asking them "Can anyone tell me what MobileMe is supposed to do?" When one foolhardy exec explained the aim of the service, Jobs shot back: "So why the f*#k doesn't it do that?!?"
