    Anyone got any clues for me here. I'm connected via HDMI of course, and have been streaming tons of content from netflix and my shared library in my home with no trouble whatsoever.

    I go to test a rental by choosing one of the free rental TV Show pilot episodes, an there is no sound whatsoever. I try another one, same thing. Video loads right up no problem, smooth as silk, but no sound.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Do you have something going on with 5.1 audio causing problems? Much of the HD content on the iTunes store has a secondary 5.1 audio track, which will be used by default depending on your ATV settings. If you are not connected directly to an HDTV via HDMI, but are plugged into a reciever that doesn't support 5.1, you might not get any sound.

    Just a guess.
