    Hi All,

    Hope you can help?
    Here is my issue:

    I have a 15inch, 2.53Ghz Mid 2009 macbook pro 8gb software OSX 10.9.2 (13c64)
    My itunes media is stored on a WD mybbok live contected to a virgin media super hub. And I play my movies via home sharing to my apple tv.

    Since I have upgraded to mavericks itunes and home share is very slow.
    Apple tv takes 5 mins just to load computer (itunes info) and then films buffer and stop 5 mins in and buffer again.

    I'm thinking about going make to previous OSX as I didn't have any issues before.

    Any ideas are greatful before I go through the pain of unistall Mavericks

    Could you give us some more info?

    Is the MBP wired or wireless?
    Is the Apple TV wired or wireless
    What network equipment are you using?

    All these will help others address your questions better.

    The VM superhub is really useless as a network device. I use mine only as a modem, with my TC and an AE taking care of wifi and Ethernet connections. You might look into it, but the Netgear that VM supply is truly awful at anything other than acting as a modem.

    Hi thanks for the reply!
    MBP wireless
    Apple TV wireless
    NETGEAR VMDG480 Virgin Media Modem Wireless Router Super Hub

    I didn't have any issues at all until I upgraded to Mavericks everything worked fine with mountain loin was super fast and could watch films search and play music fine. I have noticed that iTunes is very slow to play etc on MBP.

    Thanks again
