    Same thing on my iPhone, Win7 machine connects but not my Mac.

    So, started looking around in iTunes settings... found the problem, at least on mine.

    iTunes - Preferences - Devices - you have to have a check mark in "Look for iPod touch, iPhone and iPad remotes".

    I checked that off and both my iPhone and iPad right away connected.


    (Note: The iPad did come back with a message "This remote has been unregistered...". Just selected it a 2nd time and it popped right up.)
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    Dont really know what i did but im back to having my remote
    Started to play around and had everything checked, home sharing and all that crap, then decided to get on the net with the Touch. Went into Sys Pref and selected internet sharing played around for a while then went straight back to my network, pressed the Remote and viola it found the library and i can now use it again

    Happy as larry i am lol

    Thanks for following bob

    I have the remote App on my iPhone 4 and iPad and it works fine. I have notice a bit of a latency but only occasionally. They work great with the AppleTV as well. Maybe I got lucky? IDK

    Look forward to that palmed sized beauty

    Nope, think those for whom it's not working are the unlucky few. As Tattoed noted above, google is useless in this case. There just does not seem to be any widespread cases of this if you take the dearth of anything related to this at all being found as evidence.

    Same here tried all the solutions but its still a no go. I don't think I have any firewall settings on my wireless router but I'll check and post here if anything changes. Please post a solution if anyone finds one. Weird thing is, it used to work before I upgraded to Remote App 2.0

    Mine is working now. I have done exactly NOTHING to achieve this. This week it works, last week it didn't.
    I have one issue though. I often put my songs on shuffle, and what I have noticed is that if a song starts and I would like to skip it, when I look at the Remote app, it's not showing the actual song that is playing. It shows one of the previously played songs.
    It would be good if Apple could fix these problems, but then how can you complain about something that is free?

    Same problem with Remote to iTunes connect
    similar to others I had remote working properly until the implementation of the OS upgrade, the iTunes upgrade, the iPhone upgrade and the entire mess of the mobile me/iCloud upgrade.

    My problem now is when I try and set up remote on my iPhone I can generate the code to connect to the library, but when I start up iTunes and pick the iPhone device, I do not get a prompt to enter the code. I have confirmed that home sharing is on in all areas. I am using a Time capsule wireless network, and use Airport Express to transmit to a remote receiver,and have it functioning properly. No firewalls are deployed. Have confirmed all Apple Id's and have restated home sharing several times. Home sharing is working properly for iTunes on on wireless remote computers

    Apple support has been totally unprepared and booted this up to engineering, but no call back from engineering to date.

    My opinion: Their software upgrades have let this great feature inoperable.
