Can I use 2 different iPhones (and iTunes libraries) with one ATV2?  How?

My wife and I just bought an ATV2. We both have and use iPhone 3Gs's. I installed the remote app on both phones, but I am only able to control the ATV2 with the first phone I synced with ATV2. It doesn't seem that ATV2 cares what library it links to since the user has to turn on "Home Sharing" in their individual iTunes account. ATV2 appears to be set up so that you can choose what library you want to use (Under the settings). So can I use two different iPhones with one ATV2?

You can home-share multiple libraries but only use one account at a time. So both phones would need to be signed in under the same apple ID.

  • How can I use 2 iPhones, 2 iTunes account with one PC?

    My boyfriend has an iPhone 3gs and I have an iPhone 4. We both have our own iTunes accounts as we got our phones at separate times. Currently my phone is the only one that is manged on my laptop.We would like to be able to manage his phone on my laptop as well without running the risk of anything being wiped from my phone. Please explain how this can be done. Thank you!

    Nothing will be wiped from your phone. Each phone's backup is separate. Here is an Apple article that you should take a look at:

  • How can i use apple tv and iTunes movies with component video cables for an older receiver and projector?

    i have an older yamaha receiver and projector both without hdmi inputs but component video instead. I would like to get apple tv and start renting movies through iTunes but apple tv only supports hdmi and ive read that iTunes has codes to prevent the use ot analog cables with movies. Is there a way to adapt hdmi to component video for both apple tv and iTunes easily?

    Yes, HDMI is the only supported method. Also, with converters you will run into issues with HDCP (which will prevent you from streaming DRM content from iTunes etc) as well as resolution.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    You can't merge accounts.
    You can however share or import content from another library/account using homesharing.

  • I NEVER entered a password for the backup but now I want to restore my iphone and itunes asks for one. What can I do?

    I NEVER entered a password for the backup but now I want to restore my iphone and itunes asks for one. What can I do?

    @Razmee209 is right there is nothing you can do if it is an encrypted back up
    iOS: Troubleshooting encrypted backups - Apple Support
    BUT you could try to see if you have a back up that is not encrypted. If you go to iTunes Preferences (On a Windows go to Edit Menu under the Play Button - On a Mac click on iTunes at the top left) Click on Devices and if you see a back up that does not have a lock next to it you will be able to restore from that back up without using that password.
    Encrypted passwords are set up at the time you create the back up.

    Yes, No problem at all.

    No - you can share the same iTunes account (my wife and I share the same account). But when you sync the iPads, just remember to select the correct content for her iPad and the correct content for your iPad.

  • HT4352 Can I use my iPhone as an Apple TV remote? How?

    Can I use my iPhone as an Apple TV remote? How?

    Download Apple's free Remote app from the iOS App Store. Make sure your AppleTV and iPhone are the same network, launch Remote app on iPhone, go into settings on your appleTV and select general > remotes and follow the instructions. You can also use this app to control  iTunes on your computer... Enjoy!

  • How can I synchronize two iphones and two ipods on one MAC

    How can I synchronize two iphones and two ipods on one MAC. My wife and i each have our own iPods and iPhones but share one MAC.

    What do you mean by synchronize; music, apps, calendars, email, etc? Do you two share the same Apple ID on all devices? An Apple ID can support up to 5 computers and many iDevices.
    I hope this helps.

    If I have two or more iTunes Libraries on one computer, how do I know which one is opening when I click on the iTunes icon on my desktop?

    You cannot.
    When you sync to a new library, it will erase the current content.
    Use your backup copy of the old computer to copy everything to the new one.

    How can i download ios 7.1 without using my iphone and itunes

    If you don't use your phone and you don't use iTunes, what are you expecting to use? Your options to update your device are Over The Air through Settings>General>Software Update or by connecting the device to iTunes and updating.
    Best of luck.

  • Can we use different Databases (Oracle & SQL Server) in one report?

    Post Author: venki5star
    CA Forum: .NET
    Hi there.
    Can we use different databases (Oracle & SQL Server) in a same report?
    If possible how?
    Another question,
    Can we change the Provider Name at runtime of the given report. If so the above question is useless...
    Thanks in Advance.

    I tried this using Oracle Provider for OLEDB (the one that supplied by Oracle Client) and Crystal Reports 9. you can drag the column into designer but the image does not appear in preview.
    I guess it's because CR does not recognized it as image, and there are no information that the blob data is an image at all.

    Try:
    - Powering off and then back on your router.
    - The Additional Information paragraph of
    iTunes for Windows: iTunes cannot contact the iPhone, iPad, or iPod software update server
    - Change the DNS to either Google's or Open DNS servers
    Public DNS — Google Developers
    OpenDNS IP Addresses
    - Try on another computer/network
    - Wait if it is an Apple problem
