    I have been trying to resolve this situation for 3 days and neither the PC manufacturer nor Apple could help me solve the problem. Anyone else have any suggestions?

    We bought ATV2, opened it up and installed it. Enabled Home Sharing over WiFi on a Mac Book Pro and a PC running Vista. Both computers showed up under the computer menu on the ATV2 and life was good. Fast forward a couple of days later.

    We have not done any updates or installed any new programs that we are aware of on the PC. Now only the Mac Book Pro shows up on the ATV2. The Vista machine does not show up on the ATV2 at all. The really weird thing is that I can still see the Vista iTunes Library on the MacBook Pro via Home Sharing.

    AFter looking online and talking to someone from Apple Tech Support I have tried:

    Power cycling router and all computers
    Turning off Home Sharing on all computers and the ATV2 and restarting
    Disabling Windows Firewall and my Antivirus program
    Specifying port addresses for ATV2 in Windows Firewall options
    Checked to make sure everything has similar IP address
    Banged head against a wall
