iTunes 8 Airport Express Fix

Upon updating my iTunes to the latest version 8 with the new Genius sidebar I was extremely disappointed to find that my Airtunes did not work through my remote speakers on my Airport Express.

After some digging around the Apple support forums I found I was not the only one with the new found problem!

I looked at all the information and did some searches for the latest updates to Apples software and hardware, I found that Airport Express has a Firmware upgrade available for 6.2 to 6.3.

You can download the latest Airport Express Firmware from Apples web site. (For Windows users of iTunes 8.0).

You may still need to check your firewall settings and make sure that UDP traffic is unblocked.

Once thats done you will be able to enjoy listening to your iTunes 8 music through your remote speakers on Airport Express.

Thanks would be nice, simply fill the form below! :)
