    As I've mentioned elsewhere my parents have got me an ATV2 for christmas, I'm getting my head around getting the best from it but whilst uploading digital copy dvd's to the home computer have come up with a quandry

    The home computer's iTunes uses the wife's Apple ID so all the digital copy discs asked for her to log in to confirm I suppose "ownership" in Apple eye's

    I've set up home sharing on my phone to check that I can view the movies etc

    All great so far, but as I sat down today to buy a movie or two (and aTV show that we now get in the UK and direct from match i believe :) )from iTunes (using my apple ID) it's dawned on me...

    I'll have to switch the Apple home sharing account of the ATV 2 to my mine to see anything I buy

    so my questions (eventually i hear you sigh!) Am i right with the above (or is there something i'm missing in understanding) and is it a pain to switch Apple ID's on the ATV 2?
