Problem with home sharing
I ve been having a problem with my apple tv home sharing with my mac. The setting on my mac and apple tv are both on, but the apple tv wont connect. I have the latest itunes, no firewall..This happens every time I want to use my apple tv after its been sleeping for a while.. The way I get it to work is i turn off home sharing on my mac, then turn on. Apple tv then connects. I really dont think i need to do this every time i want to watch apple tv...
Anyone else with similar issues..

okay, i just fixed my home sharing / remote app issues with my Windows-based iTunes share.
I am running Windows 7 64bit.
Go to the Windows/Start Menu, type "Windows Firewall With Advanced Security" into the search box. Launch that app.
On the resulting window, click on "Inbound Rules" in the left sidebar, then in the center area look for the entries titled "Bonjour Services". Double click on each of them and in the resulting windows click on the Advanced tabs.
From there, there are 3 checkboxes. Domain, Private and Public. Make sure Private is checked in both windows. Click apply.
Doing this made all of my iDevices remote apps immediately see my Windows7 iTunes library.
