I bought Apple TV 2 about 3 months ago, but I've never been able to get home sharing to work.

WiFi is working. I can watch content from services like YouTube etc.

However when I go to the "Computer" option. It keeps telling me to turn on Home Sharing on my i7 iMac for my account.

I check itunes, and make sure it's launched with home sharing turned on, by no devices ever show up under "Shared". After tuning home sharing on and pressing "done" the "shared" menu option in the sidebar disappears.

I've tried messing around, manually entering IP addresses (as mentioned here http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3509 , but don't really know what I'm doing in that regard and haven't been able to solve the problem this way.

2.8 Ghz Intel Core i7, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
