    Hey,

    I got my Apple TV and it's great. I have only one unique problem though. Music videos. See, i have sth around 100 music videos in itunes (Smart Playlist Music Videos) and what i want to do is play them on my HD tv via Apple TV, in a continuous order. I mean that now when i go to music:music videos:All: (in the Apple TV menu) and i choose a music video it will star playing and when it finishes it will get me back to the menu with all my videos!That's not what i want! I want as soon as one video ends, another starts playing!!!!! By the way Same thing happens in FrontRow. Am i doing sth wrong?? Does anybody have any idea??? Anything will be helpful, thanking you in advance..........

    i miss that feature too

    I think iTunes behaves the same way as well. I am looking for a workaround too.

    No itunes doesn't behave the same way. As a music video finishes the next one starts as they were songs.......That's why it seems weird to me, apple tv doesn't behave as itunes......

    'enhancement request'

    Yeah - I spent 45 minutes on the phone today regarding this. They said they would log it as an 'enhancement request' or something. I told them to be sure to point out that neither iTunes, or even the iPod behave this way... As far as I am concerned it is a 'bug' - but ... I'm just a loyal Apple customer.

    I love when you go to shuffle a music video playlist and it says that apple tv can't play the file, or there is no file - or whatever the message says... however if you add a 'song' to that playlist it will play that song over and over and over again...

    :(

    While a 'video jukebox' was not my main reason for buying the unit - it's a really glaring omission.
