    I have an HTPC with all my music. I have a laptop and I rip a CD to the laptop's library. I add it to the iCloud. How do I have the HTPC automatically download the new songs (since they weren't purchased through iTunes)?

    iTunes Match is the only way to sync up music that is not purchased from iTunes to multiple computers. I signed up last week. It is still sort of buggy, but overall the value of having all my music available on all my devices is worth living with the bugs until Apple fixes them.

    From the URL you posted:

    Previously downloaded or non-iTunes Store content can only be manually transferred. It may be necessary to authorize iTunes Store content for playback on other computers.

    I think this is contradictory to what the OP requested.

    I wasn't very clear. I already have iTunes Match. I can download songs I put on the iCloud to my HTPC by logging into it and manually downloading them. I don't want to have to do that.

    I don't want to sync my laptop library with my HTPC (since I don't want to waste my precious SSD space). I want to sync whatever I put into the iCloud from my laptop to my HTPC.
