Hi Guys,


i am really hoping someone can help me with this as its driving me crazy and i cant seem to find anyone else with a similiar issue in the vast rececess of the interenet. Up in my Studio i have a 2010 imac with everything up to date in terms of updates, hooked up to that i have my lacie external hardrive that contains all my tv shows and films that i have ripped from dvds using Handbrake on apple TV settings.


Downstairs i have a 3rd generation apple TV hooked up to my Sony TV via HDMI, the apple TV is connected directly to a network port in the wall and so is the imac, I use the computer tab on apple TV to watch the films and shows stored on my lacie on my TV downstairs and everything works beautifuly EXCEPT every now and then i will add a new show or film to my itunes and for some reason my apple TV doesnt like it very much!

for example; i have ripped and converted three seasons of father ted to my hardrive and added it to my  itunes, it plays perfectly on my imac using itunes, but when i click to view it on the apple TV downstairs the audio has been sped up! the picture is running at normal speed... i have also had a few shows play fine on the imac and yet when they play on apple TV the audio is about 3 seconds ahead of the picture.


Its very frustrating as its random and i cant find a solution to it, and i can normally figure these things out! i have tried:

- reconverting the shows and adding to itunes

- deleting from itunes, resetting apple TV and itunes and adding them again

- looking for any similarities in the files affected


im getting NOTHING!

any ideas or help would be massively appriciated as im at a loss as to what to try next!


Thanks in advance


Apple TV, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
