Hi Folks,

I got rid of a macmini in favour of ATV2 because of ease of use. I took it out of its box, hooked it up updated the software (had no choice in that matter). See's mu wirless network, no problems, everything works except it wont see my computer / library. Not a sniff. My itunes does not see anything. Have tried everything that Apple suggests.

Please someone help! All my software is bang up todate. I am work of snow leopard 10.6.7.

Thank you in advance,
