I installed the iPad (1.0) Remote app and it is unable to see iTunes when Home Sharing was set up. I received an AppleTV 2 as a gift and spent a few hours setting it up. I was able to set it up, but ATV wasn't able to see iTunes. When I installed the iPad (1.0) Remote app, it was, similarly, unable to see iTunes when Home Sharing was set up. It would spin for a few minutes and then say that it was unable to connect. I called Apple tech support, they said to make sure six ports were opened, which I did. I called Apple back and they had me try a ton of stuff, including trashing iTunes and downloading a new copy, refreshing ATV, rebooting everything, to no avail. Two appointments at the Genius Bar, spanning, 3 hours, as well as a 90 minute call to Apple and I'm back at square one. I'm not using a firewall, nor antivirus After fiddling with it (for hours) I realized that I can connect if I use a new user. Here is the latest I created a new user I went to new user and set up Home Sharing and iPad can see iTunes (with Remote app) I went back to main user and dragged iTunes music folder to shared drive ---all steps below in new user account--- I went to new user and dragged a song (not the whole folder) to new user's iTunes iPad can see iTunes I dragged all my songs (not the folder) to new user's iTunes iPad can see iTunes I quit iTunes and reopened it (just to see what would happen, and...) iPad can not see iTunes I'm stumped....any ideas? Very frustrating! Yes, both in same WiFi network, both using same Home Sharing ID. I've seen posts suggesting using a static IP address, which I not only tried, but further wouldn't seem to matter since the last steps I tried, above, show that it lost connection within seconds of quitting iTunes.
