Question iTunes not seeing my ATV ... just started this

So my ATV has worked fine for a few months and just 2 weeks ago we added one to the bedroom....

so i get home today and the ATV in the living room says no content found... I check iTunes on my iMac and it shows just the ATV in the bedroom linked ?

I restart the computer and even unplug and reset the atv and it still is not showing up in iTunes... I am using the latest version of iTunes and the latest version for ATV.... nothing has been hacked and is all standard.

Also i can still access my .mac pics through the ATV .. very odd.. as well it connects to podcasts and youtube no problem ....


HELP !!!!

I had (!) a same problem: suddenly iTunes was not showing up my ATV.

I did a network scan (IPnetMonitorX) and I did not see my ATV in the network.

On ATV I gave it a (new) fixed IP address, after that IPnetMonitorX saw that address.

And ATV appeared in iTunes after that.

Perhaps I was luckky ??

I have had this problem too, what I usually have to do is restart the modem and apple tv and computer all at the same time. That usually gets it to work for me I don't know what the del is with that.

Mine started doing this on Friday and the odd thing is that I don't think aythubg has changed. I also sometimes will have the AppleTV in iTunes and click sync and it will give me a port 3689 error and iTunes babbled about my firewall being a problem. The only issue with that is that I don't have a firewall other than the one with Leopard and it is turned off. Anyone else experience this and have a fix?

I get this once every few months. I just reboot the Apple TV and everything is back to normal.
