    It seems that when I add new songs into iTunes on my computer, the preview area (top bar) on my Apple TV 2 home screen will display the most recently added music when I select "Computer". If I add a new TV show to itunes, that same preview top bar area will show the most recently added TV shows. How do I switch around between media types form Apple TV, without adding new content? Does this make sense? Thanks!:confused:

    The preview bar is whatever media type you accessed last. For example, of you go Computer > Library > Movies, then back out to the top menu, Movies will be shown. Computer > Library > TV Shows, and TV Shows will be displayed etc.

    Nice! Thanks. I feel so silly for not knowing that. I won't have access to my ATV2 for a couple more days to test it out. To clarify, The ATV2 preview bar defaults to the media type that you most recently viewed through ATV2 or through iTunes on my computer? Thanks again!
