Apple TV Questions you may have before buying.

OK so after a long time I finally got myself an Apple TV.

But while I was looking in to buying an Apple TV I got some questions where it was really hard to find answers about so now that I have one and figured things out I thought I should share the information with you.

1. Do files I send from iTunes stay on my computer?

Yes your files need to be staying in your iTunes if you deleted them from iTunes the normal way then they will disappear from your Apple TV as well.

There is a workaround to get the movies on your Apple TV but no longer on your computer. Simply make sure you iTunes is closed and then just deleted the movies from you library files by searching in the iTunes folder. This way iTunes things your movie is on your computer but it really is gone.

2. Can I organize my movies and TV series I put on there myself?

Yes this is pretty easy. First you can in iTunes say that the movie files are TV shows and then you can even give them a season nr. This way all the episodes of a TV show will show up in one lets call it folder.

For movies you can also organize them by kinda of movie like Drama, Comedy and so on.

You can also just move movies in the TV shows folder as i described above.

Organizing this way is pretty easy and handy. You can of course organize things the way you like. For instance I made a TV Show called Fitness and I put all my workout movies under there.

3. Can I make convert my own movies so that they show up on my Apple TV?

Yes you can just download the Handbrake software (witch is Free) and you can very easy convert DVD’s to files for you Apple TV. Not everything will work there are some specially secured DVD’s out there that I was not able to get converted the easy way. Movies I ran in to problems with where. Wal-E, Angels and Daemons and Bedtime stories.

4. The Apple TV does not have any buttons how can I turn it off?

You can’t really turn the Apple TV off. The menu offers a Standby mode but what I read online is that you don’t really turn it off. For instance you will still see it in iTunes.

For me that is not problem because I have all my AV equipment on a switch and when I am done watching everything go’s off.

That is it for now. If you have any questions leave a comment and I will try to answer you questions.

Ready to buy after reading this? Then please use our link to the Apple TV and we get you a great deal.
