I can't make heads or tails of why this is happening. The movies and TV shows are SD and therefor definitely within the requirements of the Apple TV. The movies is Animal Crackers a Marx brothers movie and the shows are two Simpsons episodes. I hope one of you can shed some light on this cunudrum. EDIT: P.S. I stream my media. Also when I try to put them on the Apple TV HDD it says they can't be played on the Apple TV.
