Using Home Sharing, can Movies be copied not only Streamed ?

    I can't see what i'm looking for, not sure u understand me right ... instead of syncing via usb & iTunes, copy / download via 'Home Sharing' to be done by the iPad ?

    You can stream on the home sharing via ipad. but you need to download from the itunes app on the iPad. Under the purchased section.

    I should have chosen my words a bit better soz ... download i mean copy, it was whatever u find familiar but forgot about the iTunes App & downloading Movies ;-p  So the step by step would be, to open "Videos" load "Shared" the share library, then select a Movie to watch and copy it to the iPad, so iTunes on the Mac is not running the whole time. This yes is the same as plugging a device (iPad / iPhone) with a USB cable into iTunes on a Mac, but I hope one day Apple does this because it would improve the whole experience ! :-)

    No if you click Videos and then Shared you can only stream.


    If you want to download go into itune app, select more, select purchased


    You can download/Copy from here without plugging in USB cable
