    Hey MacRumors,

    Is there anyway to limit what is and is not shared on home sharing (in iTunes)? My roommates keep swiping my ringtones, and it psyches me out when I hear my custom tone and it's not my phone doing it. I don't mind sharing music and videos, but I'd like to keep my ringtones to myself.

    Thanks in advance!

    You can share playslits selectively (in iTune's Sharing preferences). I don't think there's a way to share everything except a playlist, though.

    Okay, I saw that preference and didn't think it applied to the Home Sharing function, since on my laptop I have both library and Home Sharing active and see two different libraries from the same computer.

    I'll give this a shot, though. Hopefully it'll work!
