    I took a screen shot on my iPhone (you can tell by the bar on top) of what was playing on my Apple TV. I am assuming I used my remote app on my phone. Now when I use the same app, no picture shows. Anybody know how I can get this to pop up? Thanks in advance.

    Looks like you can do this if you choose the item to play from the Remote app. Here's how I did it:

    In Remote, choose your shared iTunes library (NOT one of your ATV's)

    Choose the item you want to play

    Hit the AirPlay icon to choose the destination ATV

    By doing that, I get the screen you show.
