Suspect I know the answer to this but thought i'd check...
The weather here in the uk is pretty lousy at the moment, and was intending to set up a "movie at home" as we call it on Thursday for the kids whilst they are on their Easter holidays.
So, plugged in the hdmi connector, whilst in the iTunes library and it popped up with accessory not supported, which I've had trying to stream sky f1. It then streamed a smaller version of the preview onto the screen, but that was it.
So.. If i want to stream films from iTunes onto my tv,it's got to be via an apple tv?
There's nothing wrong with the hdmi connector as I use it with BBC iplayer fine.
