Has anyone had this problem. When I buy a TV show on AppleTV and then start up iTunes on the computer, while syncing the TV show from AppleTV to iTunes, the computer freezes (not the AppleTV). Some details:

1. This has happened in 2.3, 2.3.1, and now 2.4 OS of AppleTV.
2. Has happened in multiple versions of iTunes (now running 8.2)
3. Custom sync setup

The only way that I've been able to deal with it is to watch the episode on the AppleTV and then delete from there. I thought it might be an authentication issue, so I have logged out and back in on the computer and AppleTV. I would like to get it addressed now though, since I bought a season pass to a show and now have 20 episodes on the AppleTV. I can't sync new stuff to the AppleTV since it appears to sync the content on the AppleTV back to the computer before it syncs new computer stuff to the AppleTV and the freezing blocks it early in the process.

I suppose I can deal with this in the future by ONLY buying stuff on the computer and then having it sync down, but there's something nice about being able to order from the couch.

Thanks.
