I know I have it set up correctly because on my iPhone it connects wonderfully, so that eliminates any network issues or configuration issues in iTunes. I just cant get the ipad to connect.Also interesting, and perhaps related, when I set up Apples remote App, I see the ipad listed under devices, I enter the code, everything is OK. But then the ipad times out whilst trying to connect to the library.Any ideas? home Built Dual Quad Core (x64) 16GB RAM Windows 7...

While watching video using home sharing wifi connection suddenly drops and switches to 3g. As you know, home sharing only works on wifi so video disappears. As soon as I back out of home sharing the wifi signal pops up immediately. home sharing does not offer to resume playback so you have to manually find where you left off. Never had any wifi drops before and it only does this while in home sharing on the ipad. It does this every time. Anyone else? iMac 2.66 GHz Mac OS X (10.6.6)...

I was looking forward to the home sharing functionality in 4.3, but I think it is a big disappointment. The interface on the ipad is very slow, mainly because it takes ages to get the artwork (and there doesnt seem to be any caching, like on the Apple TV). Also the TV shows seem randomly ordered. Apparantly it is not just me (http://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comments/g3j8e/the_shared_videos_interface_in_ios_43_for_the/), but Im still wondering if some issues can be solved, like the TV show order?

Hello! I am not able to play any movies on my ipad through home sharing that I bought in the iTunes store. Movies encoded with Handbrake work, so why not ones bought in the store? When I try to play one it comes up with this error message: This movie could not be played. Just to be clear, I am trying to use the new home sharing feature that is supposed to allow you to play your entire iTunes library through all your ios devices, i.e. ipad and iPhone.

Today I received my ipad WI-FI + 3G 64GB but it seems to have a problem with the home key. If I open one of the apps on the home screen and just allow it to open, without using it, I am able to press the home Button and see the home screen once again. If I open an App and use one of these for a while, however, I am not able to go to the home screen after pressing the home button. Whats up? The button doesnt seem to be broken because it works after just opening an app without using it.Thanks for the help,Lou ipad WI-FI + 3G 64GB Mac OS X (10.6.3)...
