Q: Home sharing from more than one apple id?

Q: Why does my apple tv keep saying to turn on home sharing on my computer when it is already on?

I can play all of my purchased movies and apps etc just fine on my appletv. My problem is when I go to play a  movie from my itunes library it will not let me, telling me to make sure home sharing is on.
