Some owners of Apple’s 2011 MacBook Pros say they can’t connect devices or maintain connections through iTunes Home Sharing.
A support thread (http://macte.ch/UGCse) in Apple’s Discussion forums has received over 200 posts from owners of Apple’s latest MacBook Pros reporting issues with iTunes Home Sharing. Several readers have also contacted “AppleInsider” (http://www.appleinsider.com) regarding the issue. According to forum user ‘themacbear,’ the new MacBook Pro was able to stream to a second-generation Apple TV at first, but then the Apple TV reported being unable to connect or would display the error message “There are no movies in this library.”
Home Sharing in iTunes is designed to let you stream and transfer music, videos, and more with up to five other computers on your local network. Home Sharing is linked to a single iTune Store account.
