Hi, I recently bought Apple TV 2012 Full HD. The network is functioning properly and the Apple TV recognizes the network (I can download movies, youtube, etc on the Apple TV). Problem is, it wont load the itunes library from my Mac. It furthermore won't allow home sharing and/or airplay.


The following I have tried:

1. Updated Mac software

2. Updated Apple TV Software

3. Updated the firmware of my modem / router

4. Updated Itunes to latest version

5. Checked the firewall settings of Mac - no firewall in place

6. Restarted all the devices and reset it several times.

7. Put Home sharing on/off on both itunes / Apple TV and then restarted the process.


What happens is, on very odd occasions it recognizes the itunes library but then drops it again. Network still operating fine. Same thing happens with Home sharing. Airplay also does not show.


Can anybody help me please? Would appreciate it a lot.
