The items listed are in conflict. You mentioned AirPlay does not work, but AirPlay was never supported on the first gen ATV. So do you have a first gen ATV? Is it larger and gray, or the small block hocky puck size?
The first gen. ATV has not been supported now for years. So I would not be supprised if they are no longer supporting it in iTunes11. Not likely to have anything to do with using Vista.

If you had read my post...
"Everything did work before iTunes 11 - now it doesn't. "
AirPlay has always worked with iTunes. iTunes/Apple says it still supports Apple TV gen 1 devices.

It is YOU that did not read MY post. The first Gen AppleTV does not support AirPlay. So either that statement is incorrect, or you do not have a first gen AppleTV. Which I already explained.

Hey Troll I have been using airtunes for years - if you can't offer any help and want to act like a child arguing sematics then bugger off. You are of no help nor of any consequence and nothing more than a *****.

Brian was only trying to determine which Apple TV you have so he can try to help you, because whilst you said it's a first generation, you did provide other information which contradicted that.
You are clearly aware of this because you have now changed your last post to say AirTunes instead of AirPlay, which is fine, unless of course you are doing so hoping no one notices this whilst you insult the person who has stopped by to try to help you.

Sorry Winston, I don't mean to sound like a pr!ck, but if that was his real goal, he should have just asked - that is what normal people do. He was being an IT Snob (if you don't have the answer, pick on a missused term that has zero barring, and focus on it to derail the conversation.) There is zero need for that inner office politics here.
All I'm looking for is some actual help - it seems there are 1,000s like me that have the same problem. At this point 83 people have looked at this thread - I'm guessing 90% have the same problem. That is what I want to avoid. Yet now this thread is starting to look like the rest, being filled by posts without answers or asking questions that have zero barring on the actual issue. Airplay - Airtunes (whichever module iTunes uses to connect to the device) makes zero difference on that actual problem if the device not being seen by iTunes 11. iTunes needs to see the device before that makes a bit of difference. That is the simpilist problem solving path if there ever was one.
It is a GEN 1 Apple TV confirmed by Apple by it's serial.
If you are in the same boat, please add that you are in the same boat. If you do not know the answer - then don't post. No one comes here to chat or cares how many posts you have - they come here to find answers.
Something changed with iTunes 11 - what was it?
What settings need to change to compensate for it with Vista OS?
Please see my original post for all the details.

Hi Panoramic, I had very similar issue with iTunes 11 (Mac) and Apple TV. Wouldn't show in iTunes at all, even though it was all networked up OK. I found that Apple TV still had my Mac's library showing under 'Computers' in settings. I unlinked it from in there, then added it in the same place, it displayed the PIN on screen, and then showed up in iTunes under devices! Woo hoo! That was it, entered PIN in iTunes and I was back in business.
Those other dipsticks are not as right as they think, fact is, at the iTunes 11 end it's referred to as 'AirPlay', even if you've got a G1 Apple TV. You are 100% right, and am glad you posted this question. If you don't succeed, please post back. Cheers, mate!

Thank you for the reply!
I have not figured out how to get it working yet. I did try unlinking all the libaries and even rebuilt it (I have a PC.)
I also did note that iTunes 11 referes to the "action" as airplay.
I have for the moment just unplugged the box and attaced it to my network, sync and then move it back. That works fine but the wireless sync will not work- same network, same settings etc.
I'm going to try utilizing a powerline device next.
This is a real shame - I really like the apple TV device and want the HD built in. I'm a photographer and the slide show works better than most any other device.

Hi Panoramic, I'm having exactly the same issue - it all worked fine until the iTunes 11.0.1 "upgrade". I'm running Windows 7; trying to get iTunes to recognise an Apple TV 1st Gen.
I tried Martin Clunes' recommendation; this partly solved the problem but created another: I was able to see the ATV in the list of devices in iTunes, but when I then tried to connect to it (by entering the relevant PIN number), Windows blue-screened on me. FYI, it must be over a year since I have had a blue-screen experience.
For now, I have given up. Please do let me know if you ever solve this issue. Fingers crossed that Apple will review these posts and release an iTunes patch to address the problem.
