    Cannot play songs from iTunes library in computer even after installing ‘Remote’ app on iPad 2 upgraded to iOS 6.1

    As I want to play the songs available in computer’s iTunes library through my iPad 2, I have installed ‘Remote’ app into it. But, I keep getting only ‘Computer’ and ‘AirPort Base Station’ as AirPlay options. I can’t find ‘iPad’ as an option even after trying several times. What steps should I take to fix up this issue?

    You need to use Home Sharing feature for this purpose. As a first step, enable ‘Home Sharing’ in iTunes. Go to the left side of the iTunes screen for that and click the ‘Home Sharing’ option under ‘Shared’ label. If it is not possible, select ‘Advanced’ from iTunes menu bar and click on ‘Turn on Home Sharing’ option. Once this feature become active on your system, launch ‘Music’ app in your iPad. Navigate into the bottom part of the app page and tap the ‘More’ option. After that, you can choose the song you want from the iTunes library and play it through your iPad.

    Friend,i think you need to enable the sharing option in i Pad.

    :: For that move to the iTunes apps.

    :: Then you see the "shared" section in left hand.

    :: Under it select the "Home Sharing".

    :: Now open the "advanced" option and press to "Turn on Home Sharing" option.

    :: This will solve the issue.
