iTunes doesn't see the Flashed AppleTV. Why?


I just got my flashed AppleTV today and iTunes 8.0.2 can’t see the AppleTV even with the correct iTunes prefs checked. I did NOT update to aTV 2.3. Any ideas why iTunes doesn’t see my aTV?



If this a brand new AppleTV, you do have to sync the AppleTV with iTunes. In the AppleTV go to Settings > Computers > Add iTunes Library

You will be given a 4 digit code and then in iTunes you will see the AppleTV in the sidebar under devices. In iTunes you will asked to put in that four digit code and the AppleTV would start to sync music, video, etc.

I think that is what you need to do to connect the AppleTV to iTunes.
