There have been SO many reports of that home icon disappearing.
I think the resolution is to turn off home sharing, log out of your account in the itunes store, then log back into the itunes store, then try the home sharing again.
I am not sure of the exact order, and I can't find that post....but it was something along those lines.
Yes. I have read all those posts and tried all the suggestions. The funny thing is that the problem occurs for me only for sharing between the two Windows 7 computers. It works between Windows 7 and Windows XP, Windows 7 and Mac OSX, Windows XP and Mac OSX. It must be Windows 7 specific for me and I have yet to figure it out. Firewall is not a problem because I have tried with all security features turned off and it does exactly the same thing. My work around is to share to either the Windows XP computer or the Mac computer and then share to the Windows 7 box. I am hoping to see a possible fix in the next iTunes when it comes.
How about if you temporarily turn off UAC on both Win 7 machines? Does itunes home sharing work then?
Just as a troubleshooting step - I don't recommend leaving UAC turned off permanently.
Are you able to read, edit, and save small notepad files between those 2 PCs?
How many firewalls do you have? I use a hardware firewall in my router, and also use the built-in Windows firewall. I don't use any firewalls from Norton, McAfee, etc.
