    what?

     

    appletv can access a shared lib in itunes when the computer is running shared lib is turned on in itunes and the firewall and router is not set to block the ports required

     

    if you mean connect to the appletv in terms of airplay mirror then your osx is too old and maybe your computer itself read here

    What does this mean?  The only connection between the ATV and the TV is the HDMI cable.  Plug it in.

    I'm confused? If you setup your ATV's wifi, then your tv connection works, since your tv displays the atv's settings? If you just cannot access your shared library, then double check you are using the same apple id on your atv as you have in itunes. Reboot both the atv and itunes.
