    Is there a way to burn a TV show that you have purchased on iTunes to a DVD? It seems like since you can burn songs to a CD you should be able to do it, but I can't seem to figure it out. TIA!

    Sorry, itunes won't let you do it. blame DRM...

    A sneaky way of achiveing it if you have the right gear (though it may violate the licenses) is to play the file on your ipod with a video-out cable linking to your dvd recorder drive under your television, but this will take the time of the tv show to complete, you loose quality and it certainly isn't convenient for lots of shows.

    If you're just wanting to watch shows on your tv an ipod video-cable may be the best alternative, unless you cave in and get an appleTV, as :apple: wants you to do.
