I have a problem with Home Sharing. If you know the answer please advise.

My problem relates to home sharing. I have it turned on on my PC and on my apple TV. While watching a fiolm the appleTV stops recognising that home sharing is already on and gives the usual message to turn it on, etc. BUT it is on.
I have iTunes on my C drive and all my media on the external drive.
If I turn off Home Sharing on my PC and then turn it on again the apple TV recognises the Home Sharing and will play the film for a while. But only for a while as it then doesn't recognise it again. All the usual things appear to be OK and I discovered today that even when the appleTV wrongly suggests my home sharing is off on my PC I can watch any film, uninterrupted on my iPhone.
Any thoughts please.

More than likely its a hardware issue, I have never encountered such a problem and best bet is to just go get it replaced. If you have insurance on your device apple will replace it as long as there was no water damage, if you dont have insurance they will charge $200 more or less. Hope you get it fixed

  • I have some problem with home sharing

    I have some problem with home sharing. I have iPad, iPhone, MacMini, MacBook and Apple Tv. Five items. I can't add other items to home sharing, like iPhones and pc of my sons, and my wife's pc. More than home (Family) sharing it becomes Single sharing. Is there any solution?

    Post in the iPhoto forums.

    Hi,
    What version of the OS did you upgrade from ?
    Anything before OS X 10.8.2 may have an issue if the Logic/Mother board has been replaced and the Serial Number not "flashed" back to it.
    In the Apple Icon menu use the About this Mac item.
    In the new panel click twice on the line that tells you the current OS level
    It will change to the Build number (and alternative count to the OS versions) and then the Serial Number.
    If it is missing you need to get it replaced.
    (It is supposed to be done on Repair or Refurbishment).
    An Apple Store or Apple Authorised Service Provider as the best choices.
    There are apps you can download (They are Mac Model specific) but needs careful typing as it is a once only trip.

    What do you mean by "won't pick up the songs"?
    You can only sync with one iTunes library. However, you can manage mauic and videos among different computer by:
    Using iPhone, iPad, or iPod with multiple computers
    You can transfer iTunes purchases to a computer by:

    I have a problem with my iPhone 5 stopped working the sleep / power and simultaneously refused to obey the HOME button. I can not use either one or the other. I can not enable or disable the device, display lights up when you plug the charger. same display works fine as it is surprising. or maybe someone knows what is the reason for this? is there any way to solve this problem?

  • I have just changed to Firefox from IE. When i pull up my home page which is the BBC.co.uk I have always to reset my local region as it always defaults to London. I didn't have this problem with IE. Can you please supply a solution, thank you

    I have just changed to Firefox from IE. When i pull up my home page which is the BBC.co.uk I have always to reset my local region as it always defaults to London. I didn't have this problem with IE. Can you please supply a solution.

    I fixed it!!! Following advice from similar posts, I searched the hard drive for "sessionrestore.js" in my Firefox Profiles folder (you'll need to enable viewing of hidden files in Windows Explorer (Tools > Folder Options > View (then select Hidden files option) then Apply to all folders) to do this). I then shut down Firefox, deleted the file and restarted - my home page was correct and it didn't try to open my old session! Some other posts suggested deleting everything called "sessionrestore" in that folder, but I didn't need to.

    Sorry for the delay...
    I did what you've told me, new account and manually copied my files from Time Machine. I had lots of permissions problems, but at the end, almost everything is in order... It seems it had to be with some of the Apple Preferences, but I can't be sure, as most of them were dumped to the trash can.
    I still don't have my Mail Rules back, unfortunately, although I did goggled some. It is a pity, as I had around 30 or 40 of them, getting my mail in order to each of its mailboxes, but it is a small price as the rest doesn't show the before syntoms.
    Thanks for the help, anyway!!

    Hello Makiaveli,
    It sounds like you are getting this error code when you are trying to access the iTunes Store.
    I found this article with this error listed in the symptoms section, for you that should help troubleshoot the issue named:
    Apple software on Windows: May see performance issues and blank iTunes Store
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4123
    Resolution
    The cause for these issues is a program that monitors the Winsock protocol for Windows conflicting with Apple software. These programs usually use a Layered Service Provider (LSP) that can help identify the particular program installed. The programs that monitor this protocol have a variety of purposes, including security software, content filtering, and optimization of network traffic.
    To find the LSP:
    Download Autoruns for Windows from Microsoft
    Look for Autoruns.ZIP and open the compressed folder.
    After reviewing the contents and the license, drag autoruns.exe to the desktop.
    Open Autoruns.
    Click on the tab that says Winsock Providers.
    A list of items should appear. A column showing the publisher should be available.
    For items other than Bonjour, which is from Apple, check with the publisher for updates to resolve the conflict between their software and Apple software.
    If the publisher is unfamiliar to you, you may be able to use the table below to find out more information about the origin of the modifications to Windows.
    Some of the publishers and programs that are known to have versions with a conflict are listed below:

    Once you've identified the third-party software that installed the LSP, you should check for updates. If the software is your security software, see iTunes: Troubleshooting security software issues for additional information. 
    Bytemobile is usually associated with cellular data connection software. You may want to check if your provider has instructions to disable or uninstall that portion of the software, such as these instructions from AT&T.
    Note:  If unsure on the origin of your LSP, you may try to locate vendor information to determine which software is responsible for the non-default value here.
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    Cheers,
    SterlingD

    hi - i have recently upgraded to an iphone and find that when i open my MS Outlook on my computer, the emails that were on the iphone get wiped out. Has anyone got a solution to this problem? I'm sure it's very simple when you know the answer! Thanks.

    Pay no attention to iinami, the amount of replies to people saying their handsets must have been jailbroken everytime iTunes throws out an error is tremendous. (Clearly you don't need to have any real knowledge to get to level 3 on these forums, let's hope apple's geniuses know a lot more than some of their customers.)
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3694
    Solution below.
    Error 9
    This error occurs when the device unexpectedly loses its USB connection with iTunes. This can occur if the device is manually disconnected during the restore process. This issue can be resolved by performing USB troubleshooting, using a different USB dock-connector cable, trying another USB port, restoring on another computer, or by eliminating conflicts from third-party security software.
