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.
