I've been searching around and see that there are more people with this problem but i haven't seen a solution so far.
I just cant get iTunes to see my AppleTV. I've tried several options. Other computers in my network don't have the problem and see the appletv

What i've tried so far:
- Restarted AppleTV
- Restarted Computer
- Made a new library in iTunes
- I've checked with pinging my appletv and the packages get accepted
- Tried a solution by removing NetworkInterfaces.plist and reboot

Stil it doesn't work...

Thanks already for the solution!

I had this same problem with my Hackintosh built on a GA EP45-UD3P. I was using one of the onboard NICs. Everything seemed to work fine except for the connection between my Apple TV and iTunes on my hackintosh. I was baffled. Internet activity worked. I was even remote desktopping into a Windows machine to do my work from home using my Hackintosh as my main computer. I then stumbled upon someone's post on the OS86 project that said that the onboard NIC had problems with the NIC and they suggested to use the Netgear Gigabit GA311 PCI adapter. I just happened to have a couple around and they only set me back around $25 when I bought them. I shut down my computer and installed them and low and behold my problem is totally resolved. My Apple TV works flawlessly now and stays connected in iTunes. I also can now manage my Airport Extreme Base station which I couldn't do before. Both of these are related to Bonjour. So good bit of advice, unless you ahve to, DONT use the onboard NICs, go with the Netgear Gigabit GA311 adapter. It saved me a lot of frustration.

Hope this helps..
