Is it a coincidence that mine all work fine as do plenty of other peoples'?!
Did a restore yesterday. Home sharing works perfectly on my iPad 3 w/iOS 5.1.1 as well my jailbroken iPhone on iOS 5.1.1 so it's obviously not just my network

Also album art is not displayed properly. And forget about streaming a 1080p movie.
Declandio what about this guy that you've ignored in this thread

They all say that no one else is calling in with this issue. Has anyone in this thread called apple support??? I wish I could take my iPad back now... Home sharing is a big part of why I got it...
Looks your ignoring this guy as well

Wow, you're right. Three people on a forum = there must be a bug.

Only person I'll be ignoring from now on is you! Good luck with your problems!

From what I read it 'could' be something to do with corrupt files in the library but i'll be damned if i'm going through 2tb of media to find 1 file:

Just because you are not experiencing the problem does not mean it doesn't exist. You are one of very few people who have home sharing working.

I'd say it's the other way around but no matter. Good luck trying to fix it!

Thanks Lunaoso,
Unfortunately, I've tried this many times and it doesn't work...

Huh, that's unfortunate. Home Sharing is really finicky (which you can see obviously). Let's hope for a fix soon!

Funny how Declandio can't post a screen shot. I bet he doesn't even use home sharing.

A screenshot of what - exactly? Why don't you spend less time bashing others, and more time trying to discuss the issue.

I've personally never experienced any glitches with home sharing in iOS 6. I have a permanently running iTunes instance on a Windows VM on my home server, and it's never missed a beat. I do wish it would work over VPN though!

You're a funny guy! I have better things to do with my time than to take & post screenshots to satisfy you! I really don't care if you don't believe me; home sharing works fine on my devices, end of story.

Some posts on Apple.com mention adjusting the 'energy saver' settings on your mac to get home sharing working if you're having issues (disable the compluter sleep settings & reboot everything). Have you tried that?

And what would that prove, exactly?

This is an obvious bug and I refuse to update my iPad 3rd generation to iOS 6 until this is fixed.
The following is from my iPhone 4S running 6.0.1. You see something different, I take it?

I'm beginning to think it has something to do with the amount of music you have on your hard drive. I actually have 291.39 GB of music on my itunes. The Update of IOS6 can not handle that much music I'm guessing...

When I select my libary in the Videos App on my iPad it takes 1-2 Minutes until it is connected and then again a very long time to load the covers. When I watched a TV show the show ist still marked as "unseen" in iTunes.

edit: iOS 6.1.3, I have a very big iTunes libary too. I use the latest AirPort Express and all devices are connected wirelessly
