Also if you have a computer hosting an iTunes Home Sharing thing (on ethernet), you'll get better results if your ATV is on ethernet too.

It feels a bit unfinished but I'm sure some major updates will come out soon. Still, a bit surprised they shipped it out like this.

From what you're describing, that's what it sounds like. I wonder if they had to hit some target date like the Apple Watch.

I absolutely can not get iTunes home sharing working on my new ATV and I've tried everything short of de-authorizing all my computers, does anyone have any hints or sources to look at? Apples's support forums are an empty echo chamber. It worked without issue on my ATV3.

I need my music!

Every once in a while this happens to me. Here's a few things to try:

-Is iTunes up to date?
-If on a Mac OS computer, is the OS as up to date as possible?
-Turn off Home Sharing on computer and ATV, then turn it back on
-Reboot computer and ATV (pull the plug for a minute)
-Reboot router.

I know you're not computer illiterate, but usually one or a combination of those fixes it for me.

When you go online and can see everything, how are you connecting to their site? Are you at home or at the library? Do you login right to lynda.com or do you go through a portal on your library's website and then go to lynda through there?

The school I work for has a thing for Lynda, but my IP address has to be one of the school's for it to work, so it could be something similar.

My ATV 3 (and now 4) are wired to my router. Never had any problems with Airplay. From what you're describing your network is just configured all weird from whatever reasons.

edit: Also if you have the ATV3 revision A, it uses a peer to peer connection, bypassing the router.

Over the past few years, Apple has failed to make agreements with content providers so it could launch its own streaming TV service (like Sling or VUE). I think this is why a TV has never been released. Apple likes to control the whole experience. They'd love to have you watching shows off their service on one of their TV's. If they can hammer out some deals and get this service started, then a TV is likely.

They're spending a billion dollars on content next year. I think its because they can't get any of those deals done. No one wants to play ball so they'll just make their own stuff. If any of these prove to be successful, that will get the ball rolling on their own content. I can also see them releasing a TV in this scenario as well.

I don't think they're selling any sports programming. The sports thing they showed off just hooks in with apps you have setup. Like if you have the MLB app going and mark the Yankees as your favorite, they'll show up on that main screen so you can jump right in and watch the game.

Can someone check something for me? Here's my problem:

Remember how Apple upgraded your HD copies of stuff to 4K if it was available? I'm missing a ton of 4k upgrades. Here's an example: Way back when I redeemed an ultraviolet code for The Dark Knight. When Movies Anywhere did their thing, I ended up with a 4K copy of the movie in my iTunes library. I checked today, and now it's just an HD copy. This happened to a lot of movies I have. The only one that is still 4K is Blade Runner 2049, since I actually purchased a 4K copy through VUDU.

Can someone see if that's happened to their poo poo?

You aren't supposed to get 4K streams from Movies Anywhere code redemption. Only movies purchased directly from Apple were supposed to get free 4K upgrades. You probably just somehow got them when you weren't supposed to and they took them away from you.

Same here. If it's a movie I really like, I'll pay up to ten bucks. It's also worth it to keep an eye on dvd/blu-ray sales. If a blu-ray goes on sale for cheap, I'll get it if it has a digital code. You can always flip the disc on the internet or give it to your parents.
