    I just got an Apple TV device and it hooked up with no issues. Everything seems to work ok so far EXCEPT for playing videos from MobileMe galleries. Is this a limitation of Apple TV? I can play the videos (all originally shot on iPhone 4) from the Gallery app on my iPad and iPhone (and computer of course). But on the Apple TV I can only seem to see photos, but can't get the videos to play. Help!?!?! Thanks!

    Anyone???

    My brother's Apple TV 1 doesn't have this problem. Mine is an Apple TV 2, but I don't see why that would matter. Any other thoughts???

    Solved!

    This seems so stupid! But after about an hour and ten with Apple phone support and a full restore, we discovered the fix.

    When entering in the gallery accounts, DO NOT include the "@me.com" in the name. ONLY use the prefix! Isn't that dumb? I mean, with that sufffix, photos show and even the videos in the listing, but they don't play. Leave off he suffix, and all is good!
