When I try to play my larger audio play lists through my Apple TV 2, the Apple TV crashes. I'm talking about lists that have over 100GB. Has anyone else had this issue? If so, does anyone know the exact limit for playlists? Is is tied to the number of items (songs) or the size of the list in terms of files? I was hoping to be able to shuffle my entire music library through the Apple TV 2. My entire library is over 400gb. Thanks in advance for the help!

I can shuffle my entire library via my ATVs without issue and it's almost 800Gb in size (That's just the music). My largest playlist is only 4Gb but it plays fine...

Are you able to shuffle the entire library at once?
Thanks!

And I just sit here amazed at the size of the music libraries mentioned. Are you at 800GB due to using only lossless audio formats, or is that 800GB of .mp3 files?

I have days worth of VIDEO and thousands of .RAW photos and still have only filled about 1TB of storage space...

It's a combination of Apple lossless and MP3. Mostly it's MP3. FYI, that's 130,003 songs (Including Music Videos) or 371.5 days worth.

My Movie collection is at 1.72Tb (yes, Terabytes), 1095 Movies, or 78.3 days.

My TV show collection is at 1.45Tb, 4012 TV episodes or 83.7 days.

The Movies are all ripped directly from DVD and the TV shows are something like 90% ripped, 10% iTunes.
