    I have a number of TV shows that i sync with my apple TV. I have it set to only keep the unwatched episodes of the shows on the Apple TV.

    i have some shows that are stuck on the apple TV. For one series i have about 20 unwatched episodes on the Apple TV. But there are 3 older episodes that were watched, but are still showing up in the list. They are marked as "Watched" in both the apple TV and iTunes.

    Any ideas as to how to get rid of these shows without having to re-sync the whole library?

    What if you back-up those 3 episodes and delete them from your iTunes library.

    Then sync your Apple TV, and add the 3 episodes back to iTunes after that... :confused:

    Did you stop watching those episodes before they were actually completely done. Go to your APpleTV and press play on these shows. If it asks if it hsould play from beggininning or last time played choose last time played. Then let it finish out if it didnt or press forward until it ends on its own. This could be it.

    yeah, most likely you just haven't watched enough for Apple TV to consider it 'watched'. I had this for quite a while on my ipod touch, its pretty annoying really.

    I used to watch up until the end credits, but now I ffwd to the very end. then when I sync it gets removed from the ipod. Same seems to work ok for the apple TV.
