I connected my iPad to Home Sharing from my laptop. I can play music by pressing shuffle play and pressing next, however I cannot choose which song to play because it is either greyed out (inside albums/artists/etc.) or it is regular but pressing it does nothing (Songs, playlists).

  • I assume you tried the obvious, power cycle the iPad. I mention it because I forget that even they need it sometimes =]
