I's tried everything I could find online regarding setup of itunes on my PC to connect to my Apple TV (3rd), No matter what I do, it does not show up under computers.  Everything else works. Any ideas? 


Apple TV, iOS 6.1.4

    Nearly always problems like that have to do with firewalls, router settings, virus software etc on your PC

    Apple has a KB article on the fine points (what ports to open and other settings)

     

    I'll assume you've done the basics: made sure that the name of your network is broadcast, enabled home sharing in iTunes, iTunes is running.

    an aside: IMHO best bet network wise WPA2 for nearly everything)

     

    Anyway, here are some links that may help

     

    one about tshooting Wireless issues:

    This one has to do with opening the required ports:

    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1629

     

     

    anyway I found both very quickly via Apples ATV support:

    http://www.apple.com/support/appletv/

    worth bookmarking... a more thourough search is likely to help

     

     

    Lastly, you might even try calling Apple if you're still under warranty..
