    I connected my Apple TV and did the set up. I enabled sharing with my iTunes.
    Why does my Apple TV not show in iTunes under appliances?
    I can access my iTunes music etc from Apple TV.
    Any help?

    The AppleTV doesn't show up in iTunes. You have to enable HomeSharing on both the computer with the iTunes and on the AppleTV (Settings--> General) and then your movies and music are accessible through the AppleTV.

    Only the original :apple:TV showed in iTunes and only if syncing was enabled.

    Yes it only shows in iTunes when connected via USB--and that is really only for restoring (and jailbreaking :)).
