As the question asks, really.


I am so fed up with the flakiness of Home Sharing that it simply is not worth the hassle.  I have tried all the various support articles but to little avail. Seems the only way to get it to work is to close down everything and restart every day....not ideal. 


I use my iPod Touch out in my workshop. Access is via a Wireless Access Point hardwired back to the router.  I will leave the iPod touch connected for the night but when I get back in the morning, Shared has gone. Click on More.  Doesn't come back.  Switch off the iPod..switch it back on. Sometimes you will see shared.  Click on it.  Sometimes it just dumps out of Music.  Safari works fine which suggests that the network connection is OK.
