    Hi all,

    Since upgrading to Yosemite on my iMac and MacBook Pro, I have an issue where, on my MBP, I have up to four instanced of my iMac showing in "Shared" under Finder and the same for my MBP on my iMac. Also, when I look at Computers on my AppleTV, I have several instances of the same iTunes library.

    What gives?

    I fixed this by rebooting my Time Capsule that provides the wifi network. It left me with a number in parenthesis next to the network name, but I solved that by following the information in this article http://www.cnet.com/news/computer-showing-on-network-with-2-next-to-name/ which says to turn off file sharing in system prefs, then rename the computer (remove the parenthesis) and then re-enable file sharing.
