I have a min that I turned on home sharing.  Both my touch and ipad cannot access the music or video through home sharing.  All three have homesharing turned on.  At the genuis bar I was told that the ios devices are not media extenders and that i need to use match and the cloud instead of my own wifi network and local mac mini.  I looked it up and apple states that in settings / music /  I should have a share option.  I should also have in Music/ More/  a share option that would show my library on the mini.  Neither show up.


I have all os updated and the three machines are 2012 mac mini  ipod touch 4g and Ipad 2

iPod touch (4th generation), iOS 6.1.2
