I just updated to iTunes 11 and my Apple TV2 to firmware the new 5.1.1. 


Now when I try to play music from my homesharing library on the Apple TV it stops playing after a couple of songs.  I find I have to restart the ATV & iTunes on my iMac because if I simply try to start replaying it trys to load my library for an eternity.  When I do get it started again it only lasts a short time before stopping again.


Prior to the updates it had been working perfectly.  I have everything connected via WiFi on my Airport Extreme.


Is anyone else having this problem also (buggy iTunes 11 or ATV firmware Apple?) or can someone suggest a fix?  My perfectly usable & awesome music system has now become useless!

AppleTV 2, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
