    Need help with home sharing and AirPlay
    First of hello to everyone. This is my first post. I'm having two issues since upgrading to 4.3.

    1st home sharing doesn't work on my iPhone 4. It's enabled in iTunes and works on my apple tv. I've enabled it in the iPod settings by putting in my apple id and password. Am I missing something?

    2nd issue is AirPlay only works with my PBS app. It doesn't work with other apps and doesn't work from my web browser. I thought iOS 4.3 was going to enable it system wide. Am I missing something there too? I've already done a wipe and restore and issue is the same. Help!



    Thanks in advance for any advice

    When you say Home Sharing isn't working . . . . in what way? Are you getting errors?

    Airplay now supports streaming from your devices photo/video library but not browser. As far as third party apps are concerned, the developer has to build AirPlay functionality into thier app.

    Are you certain your ID and password is correct and the same as your iTunes account?

    I'm presuming you're connected to the same network as your iTunes library

    Yes I double checked password is correct. When I purposely put in a wrong one I get an error that it's wrong and I'm on the same wifi network.
