    Under snow leopard, the apple tv showed up fine in iTunes but now with Lion I can't get the Apple TV to show up at all. I'm new to the Mac so a little help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    I'm going to assume you are trying to airplay things to the ATV which is connected to your TV, and that you are not trying to restore or update the ATV via USB.

    Is homesharing turned on in iTunes? Its in the iTunes preferences.

    Is homesharing turned on with the ATV?

    Is airplay turned on with the ATV?

    Are both the mac and ATV on the same network?

    Is it an ATV or ATV2 ?

    The ATV2 doesn't show up anymore. It's like that by design.

    All you do is stream from iTunes to ATV2, there are no files saved anymore on the ATV2, because it does't have any HD. Why would you need it to show in iTunes, anyways ?
