Apple TV quits unexpectedly and when I look at the Mac Mini where the Music is coming from, it says someone else is using the Apple TV.  Any idea how this happens?  All s/w is updated.  Re-booted all h/w.

The Apple TV will play four or five songs from the Computer, and then stops suddenly.  It's worked fine for months until a couple days ago.  The message says the AirPlay/Apple TV is being used by another person.  When I go down to the tiny icon in the iTunes box (lower right), it only offers Computer as option and no longer shows Apple TV as option. 

Apple TV, Mac OS X (10.7.1), PC laptop also connected on iTunes
