Hello,

Is it possible to have a single movie file with multiple audio tracks and select which audio track you'd like to hear on your ATV2? This can be done very easy in quicktime (select the audio track) but I cannot seem to figure out if its possible with the ATV2?

Thanks!

Yes it is, if you press and hold the "Select" button until the menu comes up you can choose between different audio tracks. They might not be named very revealingly so there can be a bit of trial and error in picking the right one.

Disappointed they haven't fixed this yet... they had it right in the last version of AppleTV OS for the first-generation hardware (showing track description along with language). =(
