I have only authorized 2 computers for home sharing why is it saying I have authorized 5?

iPod touch (2nd generation), Windows 7

    They count all the computers authorized to play your content, not just share.  Unless you explicitly deauthorize a computer, it stays authorized forever and counts against your quota of 5.


    Unfortunately, unlike *association*, there is no way that I know of to determine what computers are authorized with your AppleID, so if there's confusion, the cleanest thing to do is..


    In iTunes, go to Store->View my AppleID->Deauthorize all, then reauthorize just individually reauthorize the ones you need.


    You can only do this once a year, so it's always important to deauthorize an obsolete computer before getting rid of it.
