    I have the ATV2, I'd like to be able to control what movies my kids can watch via my iTunes library. I can't seem to find a way to do this without a separate pc running iTunes with only kid friendly movies in the library.... Any ideas? None of parental controls within ATV2 seem to work, I think those are only applicable when renting movies

    I agree Home Sharing needs better controls of what is shared. It's not much better but you can have multiple accounts and iTunes libraries open on one computer and they show as separate libraries on the ATV2 so that's an option. As for the parental controls, they actually do work for your library. They still show up but it will ask for your password when you attempt to play them.
