    Right. Same here. It starts loading halfway with the videos section and doesn't start at all with my music app. Sucks.

    Me too...

    iPad 2 update to iOS 6, and it doesn't seem to work anymore. Works fine between my iMac and wife's MBP. But on my iPad, when I try to connect under Videos, the little "time" icon (or whatever you call it) gets halfway and just stops there. For Music, it just loads and loads (or acts like it), but then never loads. Seems to be an issue with iOS 6?

    Not for me. See http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1481182

    What I can't figure is that why it works for some. I've got a pretty big library. Maybe it works for those whose library is entirely from iTunes unlike mine.

    Home sharing broke when I upgraded to ios 6. I did manage to make it semi work with a DFU restore but it wouldn't load all my media and took forever to connect.

    With the 6.0.1 update, it still takes a while to connect but at least it's showing my entire library.

    I actually got it to work on another computer, but it still isn't working for mine.. I think it does have something to do with the size of the library... My library is big too.

    It's not the home sharing...

    It's the wake on LAN feature with mountain lion. It's not allowing the computer to see the request.

    I did a work around using app called Mobile Mouse Server on my Mac and on my devices. It wakes up the Mac and allows the home sharing libraries.
