Here's the setup: Mac Mini running main iTunes library acting as HTPC in living room MacBookPro as my day to day machine in the office, running iTunes sharing the main library - no content is stored here I want to plug my iPad into the MacBook and sync some content to it. I can do this by importing an item from the home sharing library to my MacBook's local library then sync but this takes up space and is pretty annoying. Wireless syncing all to often gives me the 'cannot find x iPad' so I've given up with that, HTPC is hidden away so don't want to have to plug it in each time I want to sync either. Ideas? Thanks!
