    Hi, I recently installed Apple TV, the new one, the black hockey puck like device. Everything worked great, full functionality. I tied it to my itunes account and was watching movies and listening to music, everything was great. The streaming part still works fine but when I try to play a song on my laptop, running 10.6.5, I'm getting a message, "connecting to Apple TV" and it seems like its trying to stream the music to apple tv when all I want is to hear the song or watch the movie on my computer. I figure its a setting that I flipped on but for the life of me I can't find it. Does anyone know where the controls for that are? Is it the apple tv settings I need to adjust?

    Thanks for any help.

    At the bottom right corner of iTunes is the Airplay selector. Click it and check that "Computer" is ticked.
