    Hey guys,

    I have a mac mini HTPC that I have set up on a shared network with my laptop. The laptop itunes content is shared over the network.

    I had been using front row on the mac mini without problems until recently, and now all of a sudden it won't recognize the shared content. When I go to "sources" in front row its simply empty.

    It still shares fine with the actual itunes program on the mac mini.

    All my software is up to date and I am not sure why all of a sudden its not sharing anymore? Any thoughts?

    The only other thing I found is that I just bought a new cd on itunes and it didn't transfer them to the mac mini, although it still streams.

    Any thoughts?

    Sorry I can't offer any help with this, I've only posted here because I'm having (what I think is) a similar problem.

    I have :apple:TV (2nd Gen) and everything from My MacBook Pro and PowerMac G5 streams to it perfectly. Using iTunes on either computer lets me see the library on the other and vice versa. However, front row on the MBP only sees files on it's own hard drive not files on the G5. When I go to "Sources" there's nothing there but the MBP.

    Anyone any ideas? I've searched the forums and can't find anything similar.
