    I purchased a movie on my MAC iTunes, it downloaded, and I can play it on the MAC. but when I try to use homeshare and play it on the aTV, I get unauthorized, please login and authorize your computer. Strange but every other movie works fine.

    Any ideas?

    thanks

    The way itunes works is you must have authorize devices, I believe you can have up to 5 per account. I'm not sure how you authorize an AppleTV.

    Log-in to iTunes on the aTV with the same AppleID used on the homeshare library.

    The 5 authorizations is for PCs and Macs... Apple TVs and iOS devices don't count... To "authorize" an AppleTV, log into iTunes and activate Home Sharing on the Apple TV... under Settings / Computers / Turn On Home Sharing
