    I just got an Apple TV and I'd like it to see both my Mac and my daughter's Windows laptop. On her laptop, can I sign in to Home Sharing as me, so the ATV can see it, but leave the iTunes Store signed in as her Apple ID?

    Yes, Home Sharing login is different from Store login. So you can use different Apple ID-s for them.

    Thanks. I signed in to Home Sharing in iTunes on my daughter's Windows 7 laptop as me, but on my ATV under "Computers" all I can see is "Dad's Library" as soon as I go into "Computers".

    She has the latest iTunes, her laptp, my MBP and the ATV are definitely all on the same network, and I've tried rebooting the ATV and her laptop...

    Does iTunes on her W7 laptop see your apple TV as AirPlay target? Even for audio?
    PS is the Bonjour service installed & running on W7? iTunes install should have taken care of this, but I would double-check.
