Hi all,

Mini 1.83Ghz, 1g ram, intel on tiger

I've really screwed up: I was moving my itunes library from my internal drive to an external drive. I stupidly deleted the the itunes library file. All my media files are fine. I've added them back in. The problem I've got is that my ATV will not connect to itunes anymore even though in preferences it shows it there as the only ATV that can be connected.

I'm not sure now whether to delete the ATV off the ATV preferences window and then reconnect, or what to do.

Any help would be gratefully received!

Thanks!

OK. So I've managed to get it to sync up by deleting the atv and starting again. All the movies are in there.

Now, when I do get the ATV to connect to itunes, it only gives me the summary and music tabs, non of the others (e.g. movies, podcasts, audiobooks). Any ideas how to switch them on?

I would try going into the iTunes preferences and deleting the Apple TV. Then quit iTunes and let it find the Apple TV again. If that doesn't work, you might try deleting the com.apple.itunes.plist file in your library/preferences folder.
