HT202190 Home Sharing of Photos with Apple TV problems. My Apple TV will work for about twenty minutes then will tell me it is not connected to Home Sharing.

What is causing my Apple TV to show my photos for about 20 minutes and then report that Home Sharing is not on?

Why does my Apple TV 4 lose connection to the home sharing network?

Hi,   I just got my Apple TV 4 a couple of days ago. It set up fine automatically with my iPhone but whenever it goes to sleep when it wakes up I can't reconnect to my iMac Home Sharing (where I have iTunes running). When I restart the unit it works and will connect and I can use it. Real pain to have to do that a couple of times a day. I have two 3rd gen Apple TV's and they work fine. I have tried a full reset of the unit and a manual set but now change.    Any guidance is appreciated, Lothar
