I have a min that I turned on home sharing. Both my touch and ipad cannot access the music or video through home sharing. All three have homesharing turned on. At the genuis bar I was told that the ios devices are not media extenders and that i need to use match and the cloud instead of my own wifi network and local mac mini. I looked it up and apple states that in settings / music / I should have a share option. I should also have in Music/ More/ a share option that would show my library on the mini. Neither show up.
I have all os updated and the three machines are 2012 mac mini ipod touch 4g and Ipad 2
