Multiple syncing errors

Every time I sync my TV, it takes about 5 minutes trying to sync these multiple things which end up not even syncing. It is a major time waster and very annoying at least. Here are some images:





I would really like to know how to make these errors disappear.

Thanks in advance!

Don't sync...just stream.

Guaranteed to make those errors disappear.


If you still want to sync, I recommend putting all the offending songs into a playlist that you can 'de-click' in the sync menu (using the manually manage/sync option. In that way, iTunes will not even bother to copy those songs to your ATV. Along the same lines, you can choose not to sync those movies or TV episodes that offend as well by not clicking them in the Movies or TV shows list.

That would work, but I am pretty sure that all of the "offending" items are audiobooks, which are in many different playlists. I don't want to un-check those because they also have songs that I want on my tv...

It seems odd to mix songs and audiobooks in the same playlist, but I'm sure you have your reasons.

All those items should have "Audiobook" as their genre. Just create a new smart playlist matching the rule "Genre" "Is Not" "Audiobook". Then select that playlist in the Music tab of the AppleTV device selection.

Or, just sync based on Genre directly and un-click the Audiobook genre in the AppleTV/Music tab.
