New ATV not in iTunes sidebar?

I'm wondering if anyone else with new AppleTVs has it in the iTunes sidebar?

I've turned on home sharing and it streams great!

The only way I can get it to show up in iTunes is if I simply plug the ATV via USB into my Mac with no power cord or HDMI

Any ideas - or is this new ATV not supposed to be seen in iTunes (expect for the AirPlay area)

Thanks!

I'm seeing the same thing. Thought it was a fault at first, but I guess there's no need for it to show up in the sidebar, since it has no local storage: It's simply a streaming destination for iTunes, like an airport express with AirTunes.

I also do not have it showing up on the Itunes sidebar. I think this is the way its supposed to be. I would imagine we won't have the problem of our apple tvs losing connection with our itunes anymore as a result of this switch to home sharing.

Ah-ha! I'd forgotten about that old problem.

I guess it might still disconnect - we just won't know while sitting in front of our Macs.

Ignorance is bliss

anyone else have a hell of a time getting home sharing to show up? I turn it on and off on both my computer and ATV like 3-4 times and the apple tv even crashed once before it finally showed up.

Yep mine froze and I had to disconnect it from power to get it back up. And Home Sharing was taking a while to show up too but now its good to go.
