    I have a few questions

    First: What is the differrent between custom sync and automatic sync in iTunes?!

    Second: Today i synced my AppleTV with my iTunes. It has taken a long time circa 3 hours.

    I synced 400 Pics, 12 Series and 2 Podcasts(Movie) and no Audio.

    But my iTunes shows me 100MB "Audio" and 500MB "Other"
    But the biggest thing is, 12 Series in HD and only 1,5GB "Video"

    Why?! That can't be right.

    Can anyone explain me this?!

    Automatic sync is when iTunes basically chooses what gets copied to your ATV hard drive, with priority being given to newer items. Custom sync is where you choose everything that is synced, and if there's not enough space to sync everything, there's an order of priority, starting with movies & TV shows and ending with podcasts I believe.
