    Hi all

    Is there a way to view movies that are stored on my AppleTV from a computer on my network through iTunes? I can view movies stored on the other computers but not the other way around...? Ideas?

    Can you not Transfer your purchases from the :apple:TV to your Computer? or is the Purchase already Saved in you Library?

    It is already stored on the AppleTV - not sure how I'd transfer it? That could work I suppose but really I was hoping I was just doing something daft and that I could make the ATV behave like all the other iTunes apps on our network. My flatmates and I constantly stream TV episodes and music off each other's iTunes but can't off things we buy from the ATV.

    :apple:TV purchases don't end up in your iTunes? I've always brought off my computer so this has never happened to me. If I purchased, not rented, a movie via my :apple:TV can't I load it on to my iTunes library?

    It should if you do a manual sync care of itunes.
