It either gets streams from the Internet (Netflix, rentals, etc) or from other devices. That is why you need a source (iTunes) or an iPod, iPad, iPhone to stream data. You can control the ATV2 using the Remote app. Support has the how to's for the ATV2 and Remote app.MP 2.66 16GB ATI 5770 MBP i7 17" iMac iPhone 4 32 iPad 3G 64, Mac OS X (10.6.1), Canon 5D MKII

That makes sense. I just didn't know if there was something wrong (I've been experiencing a lot of weird things with my iphone and ipad lately).

Okay so the deal with iTunes is that it has to be running in order for you to view your movies, pictures, tv shows, ect. But think of Apple TV as iTunes store. You can still buy and rent movies and TV shows without iTunes running. So the bottom line, you have to have iTunes running to watch your purchased items from iTunes.
The remote app confused me at first. But I got it to work. Here is a list of steps that you must take to get your Remote app to work.
1. Install the app
2. Turn on "Home Sharing"
3. Click "Add iTunes Library"
4. Type in your apple id and password
5. Click the Done button at the top
6. Then click apple tv
7. Click the name of your library
8. go to bottom and click control
