Can't find Apple TV in iTunes

We had a power failure yesterday and since then my Apple TV doesn't show up in my PMac's iTunes. The ATV works fine, you can use the internet and such. The PMac works fine, ditto. I have reset the APExpress.

Any suggestions?

... the Apple TV tab has completely disappeared from iTune's prefs.

I've had a similar problem after a powercut.

Just turn the Apple TV off and back on again, but by physically cutting the power (either at the mains switch or by pulling the plug out) - switch off/sleep using the remote doesn't have the same effect.. This seems to get Airplay working again properly, and advertises the ATV on the LAN correctly which it sounds like you are having problems with.

Good luck!

Oops, sorry I'm an ATV2 owner, so not as much help with the original ATV.

All I'd suggest is after trying the above you might want to restart your computer, or at the very least iTunes. Beyond that, I'm sure that an Apple TV expert on here who can help!

Sadly none of that works. Everything including the router has been reset.

When this happened to me I had to reset my ATV back to new. I had to redo all the passwords but it came back onto my computer.

I own both tv & tv 2 and I would suggest going into computers on your tv and add your shared iTunes library again. It should pop the code up on your tv screen and force iTunes to see it.

+1 on this. I recently set up my old ATV 1 at parents and could not figure out why iTunes could not see the ATV. You start the process on ATV not in iTunes to link then together.
