I was so excited to upgrade to iTunes 11.....(oxy-moron).  It's not a upgrade (maybe to Apple) it's a big time downgrade (for me).

 

Here we go.

 

1....AppleTV3 (ATV3) will not stay connected to computer using iTunes11, worked fine with iTune10.7.

      a.....The problem is when the computer sleeps ATV3 disconnects, if the computer never sleeps everything works fine.

2....The UI is a complete hack.

3....Can't view Album Art work in list view.

4....If you add a movie to Movies it's put in Home Movies so you have to change, not so in iTunes 10.7.

5....TV shows are combines as series, no so in iTunes 10.7

6....Good thing about iTunes11 is they brought back the color side bar icons.

7....Playlist on ATV3 (Movies) showes date added, if date added is selected in list view.

8....UI for iPhone, iPad, iPod is much improved.

 

There are many other negatives and positives but I won't go any futher.  So I completely wiped my computer and started over, thank goodness I had made a copy of ML 10.8.1 and downloaded a copy of iTunes 10.7 a few weeks ago.

 

Please fix the UI and ATV connection........starting to loose faith in Apple building quality software.

    Im helping others by telling them to downgrade, and how.

    By wiping their computer???

     

    So I completely wiped my computer and started over, thank goodness I had made a copy of ML 10.8.1 and downloaded a copy of iTunes 10.7 a few weeks ago.

    There's many, many posts here outlining much simpler and more targeted methods to downgrade  iTunes without wiping a whole computer.
