I cannot get my PC, Apple TV, IPad, on IPod to recognize each other for home sharing. I am using the safe Wifi and same Apple ID for all devices, but none recognize the other. The Remote App indicates it si own waiting for other divice to turn on Home sharing. All devices have that same message at the same time.

iPad (4th gen) Wi-Fi + Cellular, iOS 6.1.2

    I take it your library is on the PC, on iTunes there?


    1. Make sure your PC is on and Itunes is running.
    2. In Itunes, on the PC, make sure Home Sharing is on and on the correct Apple ID.
    3. Make sure your Windows firewall is off for that PC.
    4. The PC running Itunes must be on the same LAN / Subnet.


    Home sharing is more from Itunes to other devices. Not from one iPod to an Apple TV, but from a PC or Mac running Itunes and the iPod or Apple TV. To share stuff from iPod to Apple TV you simply use AirPlay.


    See if this works.
