    I have been trying for months to sync my ITunes purchased movies/tv shows on my computer to my Apple TV. My ATV is 40gbs, so I use the custom sync as I have more than 40 gbs of stuff. I have no problem pulling ATV-purchased shows to the computer, but I can't get anything I purchase on Itunes via computer onto the ATV.

    One thing I have noticed right off is that when I click on the Apple TV Devices icon on my Itunes and then go to any of music, movies or tv shows folders, they are all greyed out. Is that normal?

    I have my computer set up on my Apple TV as the Shared library, I have custom sync turned on and have selected the movies and tv shows I want to sync, but nothing from my Itunes Computer will ever go to my Apple TV.

    Thoughts, or a link someone can send me to? I've searched many places but nothing I've read has fixed my problem. Thanks!

    Not to highjack the thread but...

    If I used something like aTV Flash could I sync iTunes to an external HD on the ATV? I would like to have all my media at the ATV so it is not dependent on my MacBook Pro to stream.
