Hey I need some help.


It says to go to the device menu in iTunes Preferences & make sure there is a tick in the box that says look for a remote, but when you go to edit preferences & then devices, There is nothing that says look for a Remote.  I cannot get my iPad third generation, iPhone five or iPod touch fifth generation To control iTunes on a Apple TV Second generation. I have checked everything to make sure the software is up-to-date.  I can get it to control the Apple fine, but it will not control iTunes.

I have gone through the haring process & it still why not work I've really installed iTunes twice & checked the Firebird to confirm it is not blocking bonjour Earl any other Apple software.   I have even tried completely disabling the firewall. 


It was perfectly fine last week & then my friend got his house broken into & he asked me to go onto iCloud.com to try & locate his iPad and ever since then it has completely stopped working.  If anybody can help, it will be gladly appreciated





Apple TV (2nd generation), iOS 6.0.1

    it's unclear what you are asking


    • appletv don't run itunes
    • appletv can't control itunes on the computer
    • the computer can't control the appletv apart using airplay to use the appletv as remote speakers
    • appletv can access a shared lib on a computer runining itunes
    • appletv can be remote controlled by ios devices apart from other appletv's running the remote app app you can
    • download free from the app store


    what is it on the list of capabilities you have problems with

    or is it a confusement of what abilities was avaible ?
