After updating to iTunes 11.1 some of my HD movies don't show up on my Apple TV under Home Sharing anymore. They did before the update but now they do not. I can Airplay them to the Apple TV from iTunes, but cannot select them directly from the Apple TV. They showed up before the update under Home Sharing but not any longer.

AppleTV 2, iOS 7.0.2, iMac 24" running OS X Lion 10.7.5

    I have this issue too!
    But it does show 6 movies that I redeemed from the store and two that I had on my phone at one time.
    All the other 1000+ movies will NOT show.
    But this occurded after the ATV upgrade, not the iTunes upgrade.
    I have another ATV 2 and ATV 3 that still show my movie library list, but I did not upgrade those two.

    I have the exact same problem after updating my Apple TV.  There are only 7 movies showing up on my movie list, and None under unwatched, even tho I just added 2 more.

    All the movies show in Itunes, and will play there, but not on ATV.

    I have 3rd gen ATV, and have checked all my networking and can stream music from Itunes, and play the 7 movies there, but my media library does not show up.

    It is weird, I have over 50 movies on my media drive, and only 1 shows up.  The other movies are on my hard drive in my Itunes Library.  Why that one movie shows up, I have no idea.  It's path is the same as all the other movies on that drive.

    I have the same problem. Not sure what changed but I put two movies on my shared iTunes machine, one HD and on SD and both of them do not show up in the Apple TV movies list. I have used the same method a hundread times and it has worked flawlessly. I can send the movies to the Apple TV no problem, they just don't show in the list.  UGH!

    In iTunes, highlight the missing movies, then command-i > Options > Media Kind: Movie.

    Thanks Urban Shocker. This fixed my problem too. The movies and tv shows in my library had all somehow become listed as music in the media kind.

    I tried to follow this step, but the Media Kind dropdown box already says "Movie" and it is greyed out and can't be changed. 

     

    I still have same issues as original post.  Can only view a fraction of my purchased iTunes Movies on ATV.
