Hi,

got the follwing problem that I can not disolve myself and need some help with.

I've got a windows PC wired to my Fritzbox7360 wifi router so it works with LAN.
I've got a Apple TV 2 connected to my Fritzbox 7360 using WLAN and this works.
My Ipad is communicating with the Apple TV also using the Fritzbox WLAN and this works.

I can not get my Itunes connected at my Apple TV2 from my windows PC.
In my Fritzbox the media server is enabled. Homesharing is enabled on al the devices.

Can someone please give me a tip how to get the Itunes from the windows PC working on the apple TV2 using above configuration.

I want to stream my movies from the PC to the Apple TV.
At this moment I only can stream from the ipad.

I see your problem. You have a Windows PC in the mix. :D:apple:

Does it work if you turn off the Firewall on your Windows machine? If yes, configure your Firewall properly and re enable it after that. Home Sharing uses TCP port 3689 and UDP port 5353 to communicate with shared iTunes librarys.

Hi,

firewall seems to be the reason.
When I put it off APT works.
Now I have to configure the ports and i'm looking for that now.

thanks!
