I just got my Apple TV home and was experiencing the same issue. I have gone to Preferences/Sharing and turned on the Home Sharing option. My MacBook Pro wasn't showing up in the 'Computers' menu on the Apple TV.
However, there's a 'Turn on Home Sharing' option under the 'Advanced' menu of iTunes that has done the trick. When you select this option it will prompt you for your Apple ID and password. Once entered everything worked fine. See http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4352
I don't know whether I'm just telling you something that you already know but this worked for me.
thanks for the reply. Yeah it seems like quite a simple process. But I've followed the same instructions as those shown on this page http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4352 dozens of times and it's just not working.
I wonder if there is something wrong with the Apple TV unit?
