I's tried everything I could find online regarding setup of itunes on my PC to connect to my Apple TV (3rd), No matter what I do, it does not show up under computers.  Everything else works. Any ideas? 

Apple TV, iOS 6.1.4

    Nearly always problems like that have to do with firewalls, router settings, virus software etc on your PC

    Apple has a KB article on the fine points (what ports to open and other settings)

    Lastly, you might even try calling Apple if you're still under warranty..
