I am having trouble with a couple of music videos that were purchased on iTunes which are not playing on my Apple TV. It states that the content is not available. The music videos appear in the main Library on my MAC and in the Apple TV device on my MAC; however they are grayed out under the device Apple TV on my MAC. Can anyone help me figure out how to get the music videos to play via Apple TV? :)

If you right click on the video within iTunes and select info, you should see the account name under which the video was purchased. Is your PC/Mac authorised to play this ?

Thanks for your reply. Yes, the MAC is authorized to play it. The video was purchased at the same time as others which still play. Is there a way to go back into the time machine and reload this file from the original purchase date?

Yep - you can even use the finder from within time machine to find it :)
