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.

Is it possible to share my iPhoto library (ideally all of it) with my mothers ipad remotely (she doesnt live locally). Im thinking of some way whereby she can subscribe to an event or something that links to my iMac and avoids me having to upload manually to e.g. Picassa. The idea is something super simple whereby she can just open her ipad at her place and, hey presto, the latest photos are on it.Would Mobile Me do this fairly automatically for us both? Are there any free alternatives?Message was edited by: EPFNC iMac iPhone...|remotely-sharing-iphoto-library-ipad

My wife and I each have an ipad and we share the same iMac. We each have our own user account on the iMac. She syncs with her account, and I sync with mine. This works fine in general, but we store all our photos within iPhoto on my account. She is therefore unable to sync the photos to her ipad. The same is true with the music that we keep on the iTunes in my user account.Is there a way for her to sync so that the photos and music sync with her ipad also? iMac core 2 duo, 64gb ipads Mac OS X (10.6.3)...|sharing-iphoto-library-user-accounts-mac-ipad

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?

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.

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. My iTunes movies wont play on my iPhone 3gs either.Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! ipad First Gen iOS 4...|playing-movies-bought-itunes-home-sharing-ipad
