Itunes cannot find my apple tv

I installed apple tv in my apartment. It can see the internet through wifi since I can watch youtube videos using the airport right next to it. But itunes on my windows computer in another room cannot find it. The computer and others in my apartment also connect to the internet perfectly using the ethernet. What could be wrong?

Directv response slow to remote

If you've tried everything on the web and still n progress , try taking the remote apart and cleaning it with a little alcohol and a paper towel. A spare tooth brush is helpful too. clean the casing, the rubber touch pad (tooth brush helps here), and the circuit board where the rubber touch pad contacts the board (not the under side).
I think the manufacturer uses a black silicone grease in there , that "gunks" it up after a while. The difference in mine is night and day. I works like new again .
It's not that tricky to take apart. Just watch the video below first before you try it to see how to take it apart and let the alcohol evaporate completely before you put it back together and put the batteries in it..

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for 5 mins, then try.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.
Copy each of the following links into your browser address bar and watch all the videos.
You will have a pretty good understanding of what to do afterward.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

Apex dt250, capacitor blown. I would like to know

The DT250 has one or more bad 470uf 25v capacitors. You should replace all four. Look at some of these youtube videos for how do do the replacement.

Order 4 new 470uf 25v capacitors from P/N P10274-ND

Use first class mail as your shipping method. Will be under 10 dollars total.

Can i use the USB port on my sagum freeview reciever to download programmes to my PC?

This appears to be a television tuner with accompanying recording software. You can watch TV and record what you watch. You cannot "download from the Internet" using this device, if that is what you mean.

Apple tv will not move past restart screen and cannot conenct with itunes. i have tried everything from disconnecting entire system to reinstalling itunes, as detailed on apple site.

disk maybe dying.
did you try reset by holding down the play and and menu button together for 10 seconds?
This should flash a reset. If your ATV doesn't boot fully still most likely it is your drive

Sync with Windows media player 11

Yes i know syncing is the easiest way to hook up archos to download files have you tried manually like drop & drag the files into the video folders? Some video formats work even in the new archos series some don't & you have to buy plugins. I personally didn't like using windows media player it reminds me too much of itunes
