    I can't get the sound through my home cinema with my airport express when I play movies. It does work when I play music but when I switch to movies or music video the sound comes from the computer and not anymore through the home cinema.

    Any way of getting the sound through my home cinema ?

    you'll need to use airfoil and it's video player to get the sound from videos to come out of an express.

    this won't work on content with DRM (purchased from iTunes store)

    there is a buffer on the audio going to the express, iTunes then delays the local output and the display to match. don't know why apple decided not to do this with video.

    I only use airfoil for audio, but have noticed that the sync isn't as tight as apple's
