Apple TV 4 does not see Itunes server

Postby yoyo68 » Sun Mar 13, 2016 5:51 pm


I have installed Itunes server in my DS-412+ (DSM 5.2-5644 Update 5).

I am able to see the library from my Mac, from my PC but not from my Apple TV 4.

Any idea please?

I was trying to figure out why my Apple TV (old gen) doesn't see the DS running iTunes server. Best I can figure out the iTunes server isn't really much use unless you have multiple Mac computers (not iOS devises and Apple TV) that yo want to play stuff on.

It looks like the iTunes server won't work with anything but a Mac. I found this in the help area. ... iTunes_Mac

Note item number 3 in the list of steps for setting it up. Notes what it won't work on.

So just uninstalled the iTunes server. Having the Mac running iTunes will have to be the way to watch that stuff on Apple TV.
