I was looking through our resources for information that may help you to troubleshoot the AppleTV not showing in the iTunes sidebar. Check out this article named: Troubleshooting Apple TV not recognized in iTunes found here http://support.apple.com/kb/ts1453.
This section in particular:
1. Restart iTunes (quit or exit and then reopen iTunes).
2. Reconnect Apple TV to iTunes.
- Choose iTunes > Preferences (Mac) or Edit > Preferences (Windows), click Apple TV, and make sure "Look for Apple TVs" is selected.
- If Firewall is on in Mac OS X (in the Sharing pane of System Preferences), make sure iTunes Music Sharing is selected.
- Open iTunes on your computer.
- Select the Apple TV icon with "Click to set up" next to it in the Devices list.
- Enter the five-digit passcode from your TV screen.
3. Reset.If you are still having trouble, you can try to reset your equipment by unplugging power cords for the following:
- Apple TV
- Your TV
- Your wireless networking equipment or AirPort Base Station
- Your router from the power outlet.
- AirPort Express Setup Guide v4.2
- AirPort Extreme Base Station Setup Guide
- Designing AirPort Extreme 802.11n Networks
- AirPort Extreme (802.11n) Setup Guide
All the best,

Hi Eric. Where do I enable Bonjour? On the atv3 or on the iMac? If home sharing generally works ( when Mac is not asleep) does that suggest that they are all connected to Bonjour?

Also, I just tried an app called, iNet, a net scanner. It suggests that a sleep proxy is available on my appletv3, even when it is asleep! A summing the seeing this through iNet actually means the sleep proxy is working, does that mean my iMac is not registering itself with the proxy? Or possibly that the appletv can't use itself as a sleep proxy to find my iMac? Or just that here is some setting on my Mac that tells it to register with the sleep proxy, or that there is a network issue?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts. I an on the verb of buying an extram, but would hate to do that only to find out it was something else.

Same problem here. I think it just plain doesn't work.
Lots of good discussion here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4160837

I made a little bit of headway, I think.
