    Hello all.

    I have a small problem that I am seeking assistance with.

    I have a PC laptop that runs iTunes from a source library sitting on a HP Mediasmart server. this is not using home share but direct map to the source library.

    I am trying to share the library to my iPad. Simple reason - I want to use the iPad to play music near my BBQ rather than move my laptop outside - simple portability decision!

    What I have tried to do is use home sharing. I can see the library in the iPad 2 and select it. What I can't do is see any content. This tells me that the network is fine. Is there a possibility that the library is just taking its sweet time to download the header references to my iPad?

    What else could I have done to make this easier?

    I might try switching to the MSS as a share rather than through the laptop, but I think I'd like to at least solve this mystery!

    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    OK....now that is weird. Turning it off and on again was enough to refresh the headers. Now I can see the songs and all plays.....

    No more problem!
