I have a first-generation Apple TV, and I've been using it mostly as a music server-- I keep all of the music in my iTunes library (about 40GB worth) on the Apple TV, and when I want to listen to music, I can just use the Remote application on my iPad to pick the music I want to listen to.


Recently I discovered that all of my songs weren't actually on the Apple TV anymore-- it appears that only the ones I have checked in iTunes are on the AppleTV.  I have manual sync turned on in iTunes, and I have the sync settings for music set to "entire library."  There isn't a setting in iTunes that says whether to sync everything or just the checked items.  Is there a way to get it to sync my entire iTunes library to the Apple TV?  Is this something that changed in some recent version of iTunes?


I know I can stream songs from my Mac to the Apple TV, but I don't have my Mac powered up all the time, and I don't really want to start doing this, especially since there's ample hard disk space on the Apple TV to store everything.


Any thoughts or suggestions?  Thanks a lot...
