    Can you share stuff from different accounts?

    Supposedly you can, but I personally have not tried it. If you go to Help in iTunes (on your computer) and search the index for Home Sharing, all of the instructions are there.

    Yep, no prob. We use 2 separate accounts, w/ different names and credit cards, and share between 2 iPads, 2 iPhones, and 3 iPods. You do have to log in with the appropriate account when updating.

    I seem to have better luck updating apps on the devices, than synching them thru iTunes,

    I have three accounts (2 iPhones and 1 iPad that share the same iTunes account with no problems. Just need to ensure auto sync in disabled as it can take an age to get your content back as you had it, especially the music!

    I would rather bump then start a new thread, hope you guys don't mind.

    Just want to make sure I have the understanding of Home Sharing correct.
    I have an iPad, the wife has the iTouch, we each have different iTunes accounts on different "profiles" on the iMac.

    We wold like to share the movies we purchase, so do we each have to home share our accounts, or can just one of do it?

    Thank you
