    Wanted to know if this was possible to sync 2 iTunes accounts on one apple tv. Can it be done without the content from one iTunes account getting synced onto the other via apple tv connection. Hope this makes sense. Thanks

    Nope. You can sync from no more than 1 account. You can stream from 5.

    Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but what do you mean when you say "stream"?

    Meaning you can play media from five different iTunes, but only 'sync' to one. I have three computers in my room, and 'stream' (play) music from all three, but my :apple:Tv only 'syncs' to my Blackbook to get movies.

    This just needs to be adjusted.

    You can sync from different accounts that are on the one computer so long as they are stored in the same library and that computer is authorised to play content from all the accounts.

    I have a number of iTunes accounts from different stores and they are all stored in the one library authorised on the one computer. I can sync anything from that library to my apple tv.

    However, I am not sure if this is your situation.

    tv has really been frustrating. I've been searching the web for an answer to this, but to no avail. I am only using one iTunes library from one computer with tv. My machine is authorized for two iTunes accounts - mine and my brother's. I kept wondering why some stuff wouldn't show up on tv, and then I realized the distinction. tv is not showing anything purchased with my brother's account. I can play his purchases that I have in my iTunes just fine, but they will not appear on tv. Why????

    Similarly, my brother's machine is authorized with my iTunes account. However, my purchases have always shown up on his tv.

    How do you stream from more than one computer? I tried hooking up another computer and it won't recognize anything else.
