View Full Version : Need to keep restarting ATV3 to connect to iTunes...

Jul 15, 2012, 04:26 AM
Hi all,

I previously had an ATV2 connected to an old iMac, worked fine 95% of the time.

I recently upgraded my kit. I now have an ATV3 and a Mac Mini which I am using solely for iTunes.

The problem I am having is that when I go into the ATV, and go to "Computers" it shows the spinner as if its loading, but it never does. I have to go through to the Settings>General>Restart - restart the ATV and then iTunes shows up under my Computers

I'm doing this nearly every time I go to use the ATV. Its fine once I'm connected, but once I leave it (say overnight) I get the problem.

Both the ATV3 and the Mac Mini have a wired connection to an Airport Extreme.
The Mac Mini is set to never sleep (until WOL actually works!) so I wouldn't imagine that is the problem.

Seems strange and a tad annoying.

Any ideas?
