So we can now purchase TV Shows and Music from the AppleTV device. Does it die there or can we sync it off to our ipods and laptops?

Steps:
- sit on sofa and access appletv
- spend money in iTunes store
- purchase a song and a tv show
- grab ipod and do what to get that song/show transferred????

    All purchased content (music, TV shows), get automatically synced to your Mac from where you can then sync them to your iPod.

    You can also sync from your ATV manually by going to iTunes -> Files -> sync from my ATV, and then sync to your iPod.

    It is DEFINITELY bilateral. Indeed, there are a lot of people on this Forum that are annoyed that ATV syncs back and fills up their hard drive. Check your setting in iTunes, the syncing is managed out of iTunes, not ATV.

    No, it works in manual mode, but obviously then will only sync what you tell it to.

    Unfortunately, if you tell it to stop syncing something it used to sync, it erases it from the ATV. The interface still needs some work IMHO.

    It is bilateral, but if the content is HD, it won't work. Only SD is moveable.

    For music, make sure the box "sync" is ticked in iTunes, then regularly got to iTunes (not ATV) menu and File -> sync from my ATV.
