    I'm using ATV2 to serve music and TV/Films from my iMac's iTunes library.

    Because my children get to use ATV2, but not the iMac, I want to specifically exclude certain items from being "seen" by the ATV2, for example songs with explicit lyrics and/or 15-rated films.

    Does anyone know of a simple way of achieving that?

    You can use parental controls to require a password to play them but they will show on the menu.

    I think the only way is to set them up their own account and then use that account when signing in the ATV.

    Simply uncheck the items in iTunes and they wont appear on the ATV.
