    I have 2 Apple TVs running off a single iTunes library via a Time Machine wireless network. For the past 6 months this has been running flawlessly with iTunes installed on a PC.

    Last week I moved the library to a macbook pro and since then every time the Apple TV is switched on for the 1st time that day, the library is missing (I the message "this computer has no itunes content). If pull the power cable to the Apple TV and plug it back in, it reboots and recognises the library (putting it to sleep and waking it up does nothing).

    Does anyone else have this issue or know how to solve it.

    Many thanks in advance for any advice.

    If you restart iTunes on the Macbook pro it should find it again. Thats what I have to do every once in a while.

    Same here. Every once in a while I have to restart iTunes.

    Or, perhaps a bit more simply...turn off Home Sharing and turn it back on.

    ...or if it's might want to try and tighten it. ;)
