    What's with this large amount of stuff on my Apple TV that's labeled as "other" in iTunes.

    I was transferring a 5 GB movie to the ATV and I cancelled half way through, does this mean I just threw a couple gigs of worthless crap onto my Apple TV?
    How do I get it off?

    Is your ATV hacked?
    Usually movies that are not synced through iTunes show up as "other".

    Just as an FYI, I've never hacked my aTV and it has 3.5GB of "other". I just did a full factory restore to get rid of it.

    I have rented movies direct on the aTV, so maybe that has something to do with it?
