In iTunes 11.04, where exactly onthe screen is the "remote button" one needs to push to pair iTunes with an Android control device?

iMac G5 (17-inch), Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    iTunes cannot be paired with an Android device, it is only for syncing and sharing of media with other Apple devices.

     

    FYI, there is no remote button and nothing in the referenced document says "remote button".

    Have you read the document? It says "About Remote app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch". If you have an app for your Samsung that allows you to control iTunes on your computer, you need to read the documentation that came with that app. It's not provided by Apple and so Apple will have nothing to say about it.

     

    Regards.

    Again, the instructions are for the Remote app on an iOS device, and requires Home Sharing. These instructions will not work with an Android device since an Android device does not support Home Sharing. If you have some sort of remote capability from your Android device at home, it's because of some additional software.

     

    You need to take this issue up on a site dedicated to support of your Android phone.

    I have an iPod Touch, Remote app, Home Sharing, and am trying to connect it to my iTunes on computer as well.  I also cannot find the "remote" button as referenced in the Help instructions.  So not just an issue with Android devices.

    As has been stated multiple times, there is NO REMOTE BUTTON.  Please actually read the article from which the question was posted and follow the steps provided.

    Laxosaurus, if reading the support article does not help, I would suggest you start your own thread and ask for assistance. You're unlikely to get help here since this thread has long since been in essence closed out.

     

    Regards.
