    Not sure what to make of this. My Apple TV is only showing the sync'd content from my iTunes library, not the streamed content. I can add or remove sync items at will, but the ATV still does not show any of the steamed content. I've done a restart of both the ATV and my iTunes. I'd hate to have to redo the whole thing - it takes some time to sync 700 mb of content.

    Edit: That doesn't seem to be it. I've turned it on and off a few times yet it still will not show streamed content on the Apple TV.

    Sorry but that is all I know. Others have reported similar problems so I recommend you search this forum for more help.

    Well, gave up on it. I disconnected the ATV from my iTunes library and then reconnected. Of course, now I'm sync'ing nearly 700 gb of content to it. It should be done in a couple of days. :(

    Sync'd content shows up on ATV, but streamed doesn't.

    On the Apple TV summary page i have clicked or checked custom sync. then i went thru each tab and chose what i wanted to sync for example i chose to sync 5 movies and the rest are available on my apple tv via streaming. you should be able to do this for your music and podcast and tv shows. maybe this will help you some. sorry if this is something you have already tried and maybe i misunderstood your question.

    tks,

    Thanks for the thought, but the problem was it that it had showed the streaming content as well as the sync'd content for months, then suddenly the streamed content disappeared and no modding of the parameters in iTunes would rectify it. I'll just chalk it up to one more Ghost in the Apple TV Machine.
