What exactly is happening? Or not happening?
1. Atv and pad need to be on same wifi network.
2. Home sharing needs to be turned on in computer/iTunes/advanced.
3. Home sharing turned on on pad/settings/music
4. Home sharing on with same apple Id on atv/settings.
Make sure atv software is current. There was a flurry of updates a couple of months ago. If your atv is new, it is likely not current.
Lastly, reboot your router.
Thanks for the replies
Both Atv and iPad are on same wifi.
On my pc I have turned on home sharing on the advanced tool bar, and it works fine, but on iTunes on iPad there is no toolbar setting so I have gone into videos and music on the settings page and entered my apple ID and password .
It is the latest Atv and it did an update when I first switched it on.
I have no AirPlay icon showing on my iPad
I have tried rebooting my iPad,Atv and router. Tried unplugging and leaving for a minute and plugging in but still nothing
