View Full Version : Does ATV2 work with iTunes 9?

Oct 16, 2010, 12:49 PM
Question - having a few problems with iTunes10, namely there's a bug (that's been posted on both here and Apple Support Discussions) where videos, TV shows, podcasts don't sync properly with mobile devices (iPhone, iPod, etc).

So I'd like to revert back to iTunes 9 until Apple fixes this bug - does anybody here use iTunes 9 with their new (black) ATV2, or does it require iTunes 10?

It seems iTunes 10 is the only way to go:

System requirements (http://www.apple.com/appletv/specs.html)

Wi-Fi (802.11 a, b, g, or n) wireless network (wireless video streaming requires 802.11a, g or n) or 10/100BASE-T Ethernet network
iTunes Store account for renting movies and TV shows
Netflix account for streaming Netflix content
For streaming media from a Mac or PC:
iTunes 10.0.1 or later; iTunes Store account for Home Sharing

Yea, the iTunes 9 has home sharing, but it is a no go on apple TV2,

But it does show up on my other mac that is using iTunes 10.

Yea bummer, and the other mac is not that old - Tiger grrrrrr
