    I can't seem to figure this out. You know the movie or tv show description attached to each video file bought from iTunes. Well, if it's too long on the :apple:TV, it just shows a "..."

    How do I read the rest of the description? Is there a way? I can't figure this out and I'm not entirely stupid, just partially.

    Apple TV will truncate after a certain number of lines. Usually it is iTunes or the creation of the movie that truncated the description.

    Use the long description if you like- it still won't help you.

    You can fit more text in the 'long description' tag than the 'comments' tag (as much as you like?), although you will have to download a doug script to get in there and add it.

    Oh and they still truncate on your :apple:tv if they don't fit on the screen.

    Sorry about that.
