    Hi All,

    I have a US based iTunes account which works fine when I log into a PC and use it. That PC also has an Australian based account.

    I hooked up Apple TV the other day (from Australia) and it connects to my Australian ID fine. When I try to log in with my US id, it says "This account can only access content from the US itunes store" and then doesnt let me log in.

    Any solutions for how to overcome this?

    apple tv in itself doen't do an ip check, so i think it is just a matter of changing the country setting un settings...

    the apps, like netflix, do do an ip check...
