I have finally cracked my problem. Homeshare photos on WinXP iTunes 10.7 definitely works with ATV restored using this file: "AppleTV2,1_5.0.2_9B830_Restore.ipsw".
It definitely DOES NOT work with the update which was applied two weeks ago. Sorry I did not take a note of the version number, but if it is dated a month or more ago it is rubbish.
The restore procedure fails on a PC which has other USB devices connected (I didn't try to find which).
You have to hold down the shift key when clicking Restore in order to use the file you downloaded, otherwise you just get the latest version from Apple.

You will always see problems posted here as that is what the forum is for. Most issues have to do with an update not being applied properly due to power outage, flaky connection/interference etc.
