So it works, but cuts off after a minute? I'd suspect the network -- could be your router, modem (DSL, Cable, whatever) your ISP, your friends' modem, their router. That's where I would think the problem would lie. If it was a Mac problem, you'd never connect in the first place. Unfortunately, if that is the problem it might be difficult or impossible to fix. The connection between the two of your is just not robust enough to support a direct connection.
I have and Imac with snow Leopard, time machine and apple TV. Is there any way to set up screen sharing between my Imac and my Apple TV. I would love to play video from other places on my computer and show them on my TV.
Screen sharing would be between two Macs, it wouldn't make sense for an AppleTV. But you can certainly turn on iTunes sharing on your iMac and then play videos on your Apple TV that are in your iTunes library on your Mac -- provided they are in a format that the AppleTV uses.
HI, you seem to look like you know what you are doing, however, even after i enabled screen sharing in my system preferences i am unable to screen share, i can get the screen share to send, even to accept, however the connection only lasts for a min at most and i never actually am able to see my friends screen. Can you help?
