    Multiple iTunes Accounts on ATV2
    My gf and I just got an ATV2. We each have an iPad, iPhone and dell laptops (don't hate...Xmas is coming up!).

    Is there anyway to setup multiple iTunes accounts thru the ATV2? Or is this a 1:1 relationship? ATV2 - iTunes Account ID

    No you can't. you can only buy things with one account as far as i know.

    However to hook up multiple computers to ATV all you need to do to connect your GF's computer with your apple ID through 'home sharing'. Once this is done you should be able to select your GF's computer and watch/listen using her library. You can toggle back to yours whenever you like also.

    hope this answers the question.

    This is one of the few things that annoys me about the ATV. Apple needs to add the ability to set up multiple accounts and save the acts & passwords to switch between the two.

    A work around is just to stream the second account to the ATV from the Mac via the iPad.
