    I have purchased a few movies from my iPad2, but they are not showing up in iTunes on my home PC. I have automatic downloads set in the preferences and when I go to the store and choose account I can see I have 81 downloads available for iTunes , but when I press download now nothing happens. What should I try next.

    iPhone, iPad, AppleTV... got the t-shirt.

    So were you trying to download them to your PC first of all rather than downloading them directly to the iPad? I wonder why you wanted to do it that way? I always download movies directly to my iPad and keep my PC out of the equation.

    I downloaded it to my iPad first and started to watch it but decided it would be better to watch it on my Apple TV. I wanted to download it On iTunes so my kids could play with my iPad whilst I watched the film.

    Are you able to download a movie a second time like this? I didn't think that was possible? But - as usual - I'm probably/almost certainly wrong.:(

    Music, apps and books all download to iTunes when originally purchased on iPad but not movies.
    Maybe until it's fixed in iTunes it's best to purchase on iTunes and copy to iPad.

    Automatic downloads set in preferences only works for music, apps and ibooks (only apps and ibooks in the UK).

    Found this: iTunes Store: Viewing and downloading HD content on iPad

    So thats one disadvantage, Tim, of renting directly on the ipad. You need to really get over your fear of itunes ;)

    No - and I am glad that we can kiss goodbye to iTunes synchronisation with iOS5. It must have been that Christmas card I sent to Steve that persuaded him...:D

    Ok, not sure about paid for videos, have you tried syncing purchases once the ipad is connected to your pc?

    In the account settings it says I have 81 purchases ready to download, but when I click on download nothing happens.

    Not sure what you mean about account settings and purchases to download.

    As I said have you tried the transfer purchases option? (right click on your ipad under devices in itunes).
