Nothing from my library showing up on Apple TV

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
I have my apple TV connected to the network, the library which is being served up by my iMac to the network shows up in the apple tv under Settings>Computers - it's name is listed there, with what appears to be a 'chain link' graphic (?). But none of the stuff from the library, music, movies etc. shows up on the apple tv.

It's worked before, but I recently reset everything, I must have done something wrong. I turned off Syncing, because I don't want anything copied to the apple tv hard drive, I just want to stream things from the imac, as I've done before. Is there a way I might have turned off streaming?

    iTunes/Prefs/Sharing/"Share Library On Local Network"

    Thanks! I looked there, the 'share over local network' option is chosen. At the bottom of the pane it says: 'On, no users conected.'

    Is the ATV showing up in the iTunes Devices pref pane?

    In iTunes, in Preferences, in Prefs pane, there's no ATV. But it does appear in the regular Devices list to the left in the main iTunes window...
