    On the same network? Are you pressing library in the iPod app to select the homeshared library?

    Homesharing can be picky occasionally, reboot your pc and reset your iPad and try again. What should happen is when you press library in the iPod app you should then be able to choose between the iPad library and any homeshared library.

    Also, iTunes must be running on the computer. The window does not have to be active, bit if the program is not running then there is nothing to broadcast the shared library.

    When everything is set up properly, the top library bar in the iPod app changes to show a House icon. When you tap on it you will see a list of available shared libraries {see attachment}. Tap to chose.
