You have brought up an interesting point.
I was about to get the apple TV for photo viewing and now that you have pointed this out I think I will wait until this gets figured out.
Have you received any feedback elsewhere regarding a solution to this issue?
I know that you can set the color space for the export and email options. Have you tried to change that setting and see if it also effects the preveiw and transfer to Itunes...Apple Tv ?

There is also a setting under preferences that lists post import processing options for the preview.
You can choose to use the embedded color space in the Raw file or let Aperture choose it.
Not sure though if this is of any help. I only mention this as one of your other posts mentioned it was apparently taking the preview image settings and transfering them to Itunes / and to the TV.

The export settings don't have any effect on the problem, unfortunately. What preference are you referring to? Do you mean the Import "tab" in Aperture prefs? That just governs what Aperture uses for its initial preview. it will now, by default, use the preview that is embedded in every RAW file to speed up processing. As soon as you look at the photo, even without editing it, it will then generate its own JPG preview (with Adobe RGB profile).
I haven't received any other feedback about this problem anywhere, which is surprising to me. I think I can only post the problem through Apple feedback, and hope for the best. It seems that, in the meantime, the only course of action is to export everything you need to display properly on an AppleTV, and re-import those JPGs into Aperture (or iPhoto) so they can be displayed via iTunes. A royal pain!

I'm discovering the same problem! Interestingly, Apple TV 1 didn't seem to have this problem. But since Apple have moved to the little black boxes, colour rendition of photos from Aperture via iTunes has been terrible.
I've been going crazy for a long time not knowing why it was happening - now at least I know, and doing my own tests I can see the only solution for now is to export as sRGB JPGs and reimport back in - terrible pain, as you say.
Come on Apple, fix this!! Who do we need to tell?

So you're using a RAW workflow too? You can also export to a folder, and share that folder using iTunes, instead of re-importing. Still not good enough though!
Can you post about this problem at apple.com/feedback? I posted in both the Aperture and Apple TV sections. I guess we'll only get this fixed if we complain...
