Our Primary iMac is the computer that is used to maintain iTunes (Purchase songs, Sync iPods, iPhones and iPad), We have a gutless PC Desktop in the corner of our basement running Win XP that is used as Network file storage so that anything that files can be accessible from any computer on our network. I plan on buying Apple TV, because of the need to stream from a library thats running all the time using Home Sharing I decided to copy my entire iTunes library to the PC Desktop which has iTunes running all the time.  I set up Home Sharing on it, and in the settings I set it up to Automatically Transfer new purchases from the iMac.

 

The problem I face is that tonight I purchased a TV Episode on the Primary iMac and the episode did not automatically transfer to the PC Desktop. Home Sharing is enabled, and under the left hand Sidebar I do see the desktop PC under Shared Libraries...  Has anyone been able to get this Automatic Transfer working?  Anything I should be checking?  

 

(Not sure if this counts, however the PC Desktop is blocked from accessing the internet, but from what I understood the Automatic transfer is done over the network and not online)
