    I have a Macbook running Leopard with iTunes syncing to a 160GB AppleTV. This morning my wife sent me a message at work saying "The AppleTV is saying there are no shows or movies". It seems that sometime between last night and this morning my AppleTV lost all of its content (in the process of re-syncing now). Rough series of events:

    1. Watched some shows last night on the AppleTV
    2. This morning I placed a DVD in my Macbook to encode with Handbrake 0.9.1
    3. ????
    4. Notice all content on the AppleTV is gone.

    Is there an application/event log (similar to /var/log/* for system events) that can tell me what instructed the AppleTV to dump all of its content?

    (P.S. Longtime lurker, first post, great site!)
