    Ok, so I just bought an HD TV show. I got the standard version, and the HD one. For some reason, the HD one won't sync up to my iPod. What's up?

    it's not supposed to; the HD version is for apple tv and your computer.

    Why would you need the HD version on your ipod?

    It's not even an HD screen on the touch you muppet - the SD files are using every pixel available on the screen

    People don't understand what HD really means :(

    I think the general public thinks HD simply makes things look better, and while it does make things look better it is tied to the resolution of the screen. That's why a HD blu-ray movie will look no better than a dvd on a standard definition television. This is the samer reason why an HD show won't look better than a standard show from itunes on an ipod touch.

    I use a Component AV cable to my HD TV which does NOT show all the pixles from the SD file.

    By the way that's a good way to treat people on a website.
