    Just upgraded to iOS 4.3 on my iPad, with latest iTunes (10.2.1). I've got home sharing on and connecting to my iTunes, but the wierdest thing is that I'm not seeing all of the content that is in my iTunes library.

    I've already done a permissions repair just in case that was the culprit with no luck. I've also tried turning off and back on the home share on iTunes. Still nothing. All of the media was purchased from the same iTunes account (mine). I really, really want to avoid re-building my iTunes library because that does not keep information like ratings and play counts, both of which I use a LOT.

    Anyone else have this problem? Anyone have a solution?

    For what its worth... what I'm not seeing is Stargate Universe (yeah, I'm one of the few people to actually watch that show, much less have paid for it on iTunes)

    Did you check the Video/Movies app? I read somewhere today that videos were displayed there rather than in iTunes. I can't confirm, but it is worth a shot?

    Well, yeah. The iPod application only shows music and the videos application shows videos. So I'm looking in the videos application under my shared library for the show, but it's not showing up (though plenty others are).

    Did you look in the iPod app under purchased? I found some movies in there.

    make sure in your iTunes settings you have shared your entire library.

    I just updated to 4.3 as well and my entire library in available through home-sharing.

    Yes... Nothing there, but interesting that you found video content under the iPod app...
    Yeah, my entire library is shared. Had that thought too...
