Can I play my purchased movies?

I bought my Atv2 yesterday and the main reason for buying it was to be able to view my movies i bought on iTunes and TV shows. I turned on the homeshare but can only view select tv shows and movies is this an issue with some list I have? I searched the forum but could find this topic TY in advance!

make sure you have homeshare on for the apple tv and the computer you want to get the movies from.

Thanx; sorry it was an issue with the fact that I store all my files on an extrn HD and it took me closing my iTunes and restarting again to have the ATV2 refresh and pick them up sorry for the waste of bandwidth
