    So, after working with the guys at Apple, they we were to provide a solution.  Now I have no problems using Home Sharing with my iPhone 6 Plus!!!

    The issue was fixed by giving one of the wi-fi channels a different name, thus splitting the channels into 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.  Then, I connected my iPhone to one channel (2.4 GHz) and my MacBook Pro to the other channel (5GHz).  In this configuration, I have had no issues streaming my music and video.
     
    It seems that the problem is some kind of interference between both devices when using the same channel (i.e., when both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz channel share the same name).

  2. Any chance that you may have more than one wi-fi connection in the house ?  This would create a potential situation where the desktop/laptop computer and the iPhone 4S are on the same network where the iPhone 6+ may be picking up another wi-fi signal.  We have recently had this become an issue.  The other issue that I ran into was two different email accounts for logging into the iCloud vs iTunes account.  I'm guessing that you have already verified these, but if the one in the 'Music' section on the iPhone 6+ is not the same as Home Sharing in iTunes then you will have issues.  Good Luck !!
