    A couple of questions:

    I know you said the music plays fine, but:

    Are you logged in under the same iTunes account (make things easier)
    What type of network are you trying to access the additional content from? WiFi/Hardwired etc

    Have you tried hooking your devices up to the computer running iTunes and syncing a couple movies over to them? I believe you have to do that before the Downloaded and Home Sharing parts of the TV app start working right.

    heya


    Using the same account for all devices.
    Using same wifi to access on my Iphone / Ipad.

    Like i said before ,music works fine so i assume that log in credential are all ok.
    For the TV app, the ball just keeps on rotating.

    Home Sharing on iOS has always been problematic for me. The TV app just made it worse. It works great on my Apple TVs, but trying to do anything with it on my iPad has been useless. I can stream purchased movies from the cloud more easily than I can stream from my Mac.

    Heya

    The TV app shows the Downloaded and Home Sharing inks.
    When try to access the there is a spinning ball in the centre of the screen.
    Left it alone for 5 hrs......nothing.

    Music app connected less that 10mins.

    Making me go crazy.

    What speeds are you getting with WiFi? Music would work better since the files are smaller than your typical movie file.

    What happens if you hard wire the device and try to access the movie file in question? Do you still get the "loading" image?

    Heya

    Well using speed test is get around 60mbs - 150 mbs ( depends on location).

    I have tried sitting in front of the router and getting 150Mbs and tried connecting , still the same . Music works fine but not TV/ Video.It does not even load the videos / TV available , just circular pills going round and round.

    I have another Mac using Home Sharing , hard wired , works fine , smooth playing / scrubbing .

    I wish I can see he background working of Home Sharing , where is it stuck?? Why doesn't it time out or show an error ??
