Apple TV 2 docs say I need iTunes 10.2 or higher to enable Home Sharing, but I cannot find iTunes 10.2 available for download. I need 10.2 because I want to use an old PowerPC Mac Mini running OS X 10.4 and, as far as I can tell, that is the last version to officially support PowerPC. I was able to find iTunes "9.2.1 (5)" from Apple's software download site, but 10.2 seems to be magically unavailable (http://support.apple.com/downloads/#itunes%2010.2).

Can anyone tell me where I can download iTunes 10.2 if at all?

The current version of iTunes supports G4s and G5s...

Good point. I guess I should have said I need iTunes 10.2 because the PPC Mac Mini runs OS X 10.4.

Well, it also turns out that iTunes 10 dropped PPC support (link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ITunes_version_history#2010)).

According to Apple (http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/), 10.4 still runs on PPC. The problem here is Tiger. iTunes 9 is the latest version to run on Tiger. The OP should upgrade to Leopard.
