Question Apple TV in iTunes

I was looking over a picture thread about sorting movies & saw people have their Apple TV show up on the left side of their iTunes LINKY under DEVICES......HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

As far as I'm aware that only works with the first generation Apple TV. They required syncing of all the content from iTunes onto it's built in hard drive (and vice-versa), rather than all the iCloud streaming that is featured on the new second and third generation of devices which require no syncing at all.

That's an old post. Newer aTV does not show up in iTunes.

Actually ATV 1 can sync and / or wirelessly stream from your iTunes library. Though this is not he same as iCloud streaming. It will stream directly from your iTunes library.
