iTunes Library from VM
Just wondering if anyone has run an iTunes library from within a Virtual Machine??
I have Win7 running in parallels and in an effort to have a separate library for my teenage daughters with 'only their' stuff on it, I built a library that accessed the files from the existing storage location for my main library.
It shared fine in that I could see it from the ATV, but could not load it. I'm guessing something to do with firewalls?
Any ideas appreciated.
One of everything. Don't forget the fries.

According to your signature, you dont have enough Apple TVs. You need more.
Also, you shouldn't have to set the network to bridged, but firewall is definitely a possibility. Apple TV's go through iTunes Home Sharing based upon network ID's of iTunes, not the IP address of the machine. Bridged would only help if you needed a separate IP.
Just make sure your iTunes library for your daughters has a different name.
The other option is to set up a separate account as well for the machine rather than go through parallels, but either way will work.
