I have set itunes to automatically check for then download TV shows I have paid for (subscriptions). Yet, when I come home, my Mac Mini has NOT done so. I have to manually check for new downloads, enter my apple iTunes password, watch program think, enter it a SECOND time, then it starts downloading. But given I like HD programs, I cannot stream the show and must wait an hour or so for the downloads to complete before watching!
Why can't iTunes work like TIVO: "set it and forget it?" Why can't iTunes just download anything I have paid for and subscribed (like new episodes) to in the background without making me re-enter passwords or waiting for me to tell it to do so or making me manually "check for new downloads?"
