    I'm trying the new Apple TV.
    Seems that if on my iMac iTunes isn't in execution and open no streaming is allowed, is it normal ?
    (i've also enabled sharing family option)

    Just close the iTunes window and let it run in the background. Not that difficult to do.

    Assuming your on a Mac - click on the red circle in the top left of the iTunes window. PC - never used iTunes on a PC but I think you just click on the X on the top right of the window to close the window (not the app).

    I believe on a PC you have to minimize iTunes. Hitting the red X will close the application, unlike on a Mac, where iTunes will continue running in the background.

    I'm on the mac.
    I know that clicking on red button will close itunes and leave it in background.
    I'm asking to know if there's a way to leave automagically in background, even at startup (i've startup at login enabled) or even when click on it to execute.

    Go to system preferences, accounts. select your account, go to login items on the right. add itunes and click the "hide" checkbox, this should open it at startup and keep it minimised. :)
