Sorry about that. The reason I asked is because if iTunes is not open, (it's possible it was thought to be open when it wasn't) you will not see the "more" button. If iTunes and iPad have been set to share, there should be no problem as long as iTunes is open.Originally Posted by K1W1
Thanks very much for all the help
I had another look this morning and I found where I was going wrong.
I'd turned on sharing in preferences in iTunes but I hadn't realised I needed to go into another menu as well - the one cunningly labelled Home Sharing.
So even if I'm admitting to being a bit daft, I may as well own up in case someone else finds this thread via google!
Ok, I'm just being hopeful now but you never know!
I wonder if there is a way to use the pcs iTunes when I'm outside the house, say on my parents wifi at their house, and my pc is sswitched on at my house with the Internet on
I doubt apple allows that so the solution would be a general remote access app like logmein?
I have my iTunes and iPad set up for Home Sharing. Just for fun, I put my iPad on 3g and turned off the WiFi. Nope, can't see the Home network via the iPod/Music app. Granted, I'm running iOS 4.3.3 still on my iPad, but I can't access the iTunes library via the iPad on 3G only, no WiFi.
So, yeah, I'd have to say that you need to use a remote access app, such as LogMeIn or SplashTop.
Worth the question, though!
When i was on 4.3.3, I tried streaming my iTunes music files via the Remote app. My iTunes library was visible, and it looked like it was playing, but I couldn't hear it. Out of curiosity, which app is working for you?
I was/am in the stock iPod app. Works great (for when I use it...).
Never tried it through the Remote app on the iPad, though.
Thanks for the reply. Good to know.
