    Hey guys,

    I've been searching around and can't find a solution.
    Recently got a computer with windows 10 on it and I've put all my movies/tv shows (which I encoded using handbrake/subler) and the goal is to watch them on my apple tv.

    I reset home sharing on both, reset devices.
    I'm convinced is has something to do with the Windows 10 firewall settings. I have to enable something to allow the apple TV to connect to it, but I have no idea how to do it?
    Can anyone provide me with a link or step by step to be able to do this? I am so lost and it's frustrating not being able to watch my shows.

    Thanks in advance.

    Home Sharing works with both my MacBook Pro and Surface Pro 2. I did find that after doing a clean-install of W10 on my SP2 that after installing iTunes, I forgot I had to turn Home Sharing on in iTunes. Initially I thought it just wouldn't work with W10, but after that it did. Maybe you just need to turn on Home Sharing...?
