    Do you have a firewall or any firewall rules on the windows notebook that may be prohibiting part of the iTunes connection?

     

    There's a couple ports that need to be open.

     

    See firewall / point 5 here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ts2972

    Same here, home sharing from my iTunes to Apple TV just suddenly stopped working. Air Play from iTunes to Apple TV as well. Air Play from my iPhone to the Apple TV works fine, which means it's this piece of crap iTunes that is the problem.

    Itunes 11 is a complete disaster. The thing is I had a hunch that would be the case before downloading. Always be on your guard when a company or a salesman TELLS you in adverts that "this product is much more userfriendely" than former versions...I think I never have received a truly better version of any IT-product when this "postulate" - MORE USER FRIENDLY - has been tagged to the product. So beware when you see a company describing their new gadget as userfriendely...that is normally not up to the company to decide. That is the "verdict" of the users. Normally. In any case if you dont have a Steve Jobs in charge. He - unlike other IT nerds - WAS also a user. A true user AND manufacturer.

    idk if this helps your problem but to get the itunes 10 sidebar layout that has the homeshare options, go to the black and whit square at the left top corner of itunes, then select show menu bar, next go to view, then select show sidebar, that takes you to the itunes 10 menu thingy that has the shared tab and all that stuff! i just figured that stuff out when i was trying to put all my music on my new computer, hope that helps at least a little!

    Go to the top left hand corner, black and white square and ensure your menu bar is selected. The go to the lower menu bar and select show sidebar,
