    Is there a way to split (or use parental controls) for movies shared through iTunes with the new Apple TV?

    I have quite a few kid movies as well as others that are not kid friendly (PG13 & R) that I wouldn't want the kids to have access to, or at the very least have to enter the parental controls.

    These are all self ripped dvd's.

    My immediate plan is to just use AirPlay on the PG13/R movies, but this seems like kind of a hack, it would be nice to be able to split them apart.

    Does anybody have suggestions or are in a similar situation?

    Behind you!
    If you go to Settings —> General —> Parental Controls on the Apple TV, you can restrict playback above a certain rating with a passcode. However, since these are movies you've ripped yourself, you'd need to have tagged the certificate in the files. Have you done this? If not, you can use one of several tools (Subler and iFlicks being two of the main ones) to do this. iFlicks is probably best if you've got a large collection to get through though.
