Hi

I have 7 atv3 in my network, however 2 of them give me the error msg that it cannot connect to the iTunes server (home sharing), the rest of them are working

I've tried resetting the router, iTunes, the apple tv and still no luck, all the atv are connected wifi

Any idea of what i can do?

Thanks

Alex

Have you tried signing out and signing back in of the Home Sharing account on the ATV's?

That's because 5 is the limit:

That limit only applies to computers. Only 5 computers can be authorized for a single iTunes account. Home Shared devices do not count towards the "authorized computer" limit. I currently have 9 active iOS devices Home Shared at the same time on one account. On top of that I have two computers authorized with the same account used for Home Sharing.

Home sharing made me tear my hair out, my last resort solution was to ditch the routers I was using, (and I used a few) I went with an Airport Extreme and haven't looked back.

I have 5 ATV3's on my network.
