    Does anyone know if the iOS 8 Music app will load a large Home-Shared iTunes libraries completely? Under iOS 6 and 7, the progress indicator freezes around the halfway mark while loading a large library on an iOS device. (Large Home-Shared libraries load perfectly on Apple TVs, third generation tested, and iTunes running on Macs and Windows, so I believe this is an iOS problem.)

    This bug has been around since the release of iOS 6, and Apple has yet to resolve it. In fact, there is a lengthy thread about the problem in Apple's discussion forum.

    I have pretty much given up hope that this will ever get fixed, and have been using 3rd party apps (iSub / madsonic) for years now. But who knows, maybe one day they consolidate the code base for Apple TV and iDevices to improve maintenance, and accidentally fix this issue it in the process :rolleyes:
