    Got the toys. Now I need to learn how to use them properly.
    Have both AppleTV and iPad 3G. If I join Netflix:
    1) does it matter which devise I download a movie to? Can I pull it off of either with equal ease?
    2) Same question if I buy a movie from iTunes, will I have access from either device?
    Thanks

    Netflix only works with iPad, not the AppleTV. Although, you can use your Netflix account to stream to a browser (I believe you need flash support in the browser), a Nintendo Wii, and other devices. But the AppleTV does not have a browser nor the Netflix app. You don't download the movie from Netflix, but stream it.

    On the iTunes front, whichever device (AppleTV, iPad, computer, etc.) you buy the movie/tv show on will have to sync to your iTunes library before you can sync the movie to another device. They don't automatically share purchases - you have to use iTunes to sync and move the purchases between devices, for now.

    2) You can sync your iTunes movies to both devices
