Thank you alasta 22 for providing a solution. You should work for Apple. I'm really peeved at Apple. I placed 4 different calls to Apple Care about this issue. No help at all. I even spook to an engineer who said "there is no trending on this issue"; maybe she should read this blog. She suggested I run a channel scanner for my wi-fi because I may have picked up interference from other local networks. It's really a sad state of business when an Apple user has to provide a solution affecting so many users that should have been caught during testing. Another Apple Care person instructed me to take my ATV to an Apple store and have it tested; they gave me a new one; then I traded out my modem and wireless router......not a hardware problem. Well that only leaves software. Shame on you Apple.....come on....get it together.
and as well with an Mac environment, funny that this is not getting fixed
I updated my ATV and have upgraded to iTunes 11 and having the same problem but with movies. Keeps dropping out after a few minutes, it's a shame and making my library useless. Happening on all 3 ATV's in the house. does somebody knows the status on this?
For a while there, I thought maybe it was an issue with Norton 360, since there were troubleshooting articles on the Norton site re: iTunes homesharing. However, even after approving everything AppleTV/iTunes relation on Norton settings, the problem still hasn't gone away.
The cynic in me wonders if this isn't a priority for Apple - i.e., it would solve the problem instantly and be *so* much easier if I just forked over the cash for iTunes Match.
