So, I have the app installed on both my phone and my iPad. Though, I have not yet played around with them. What has me "thinking" right now, is that I can't seem to get the Apple TV to connect over the WiFi with my computer. I have the Home Sharing turned on in my iTunes account, but it just won't see it. All of the correct user names and passwords are on the TV, but still nothing. Any suggestions? Could it be a firewall issue?
Be sure you have updated the software on the aTV. There has been two updates this or last month.
This was a good suggestion, but it still did not work. I am going to have my husband check our router settings and make sure it's not the problem. Though, if it was, I would think that I would not even be able to get into the Cloud with it.
Ya, we are looking at that now and I think you are right. I am beginning to wonder if it's something with the device it's self. It's not the end of the world that I can't access it, but I paid for it, so I want it to work the way it's supposed to and have all the options available.
Got it! There were a few issues, it appears. I don't know if there is any particular order, of importance, but we did have to do a firmware update to the router. It appears that there was a known issue with internal network video sharing. Then, we think that we needed to restart the Apple TV after we did the software update (thanks for that suggestion, by the way). And finally (and probably most importantly), it appears that I need to leave iTunes OPEN on my computer in order for the Apple TV to "see" it and access it. It did not occur to us that, that would be important. In fact, we just stumbled on it when my husband said he got it, while I was in the office, and I went out to look at it in the living room without closing all my open screens first. I asked him to come back and close my iTunes and away it went on the TV. So, all in all, lessons learned. LOL
