    I just purchased an ATV2, with the idea to stream videos and music from my imac to my TV. I have home sharing opened up on my imac and on the ATV2 but yet when I try and goto "my library" the ATV2 always says "not able to find itunes library". I have itunes on my the imac open and running, but nothing... Same thing happens with my iphone4 - the airplay doesn't seem to be working either. I'm on my home network - I can stream Netflix movies. What am I missing???

    Have you enabled Home Sharing in iTunes and activated Home Sharing on the Apple TV?

    Yes, I set up both my imac and atv2 with home sharing. I'll try calling apple support.

    Are they signed onto the same home sharing account? That's crucial.

    @Slothrob - winner, you were correct I had the homesharing pointing to an incorrect email address. I was excited to get it hooked up and picked the wrong email. Thanks everyone for the help.
