Apple TV 2 & Home Sharing Hell
September 9, 2013 1:13 PM Subscribe
I have an ATV2. It asks me to turn on home sharing. I do. ATV insists that i turn on home sharing. It worked in my previous location excepting a few times, where I just unplugged the router and ATV and replugged back in. It worked here on initial setup the first try but a few days later this whole stuff happens. It worked again only after I did a complete factory reset. I have read many of the threads online and perhaps it is a bit of daftness on my part. This previous thread on mefi
helped the gentleman with his question. I didn't actually understand it very well. I have an iMac running Snow Leopard. The ATV does connect
to Netflix and all other things. Just not my computer.

Some things I have done:
-- Shut down iTunes, reopened and signed on to Home Sharing several times (no luck) in conjunction with turning on/off Home Sharing in ATV first, or second before I did the iTunes bit (no luck)
-- Unplugged ATV and router, plugged back in - no luck
-- Factory reset ATV - worked until the next time I tried.
Thanks for any input.
