I purchased a movie from iTunes and wish to sync it to my ATV 1. I have successfully synced movies not purchased through iTunes but I cannot get this movie to sync.
Is it possible or can I only play this movie on my iMac?
Thank you.

Is the movie 1080p format? I think I've seen somewhere that this won't work.

EDIT: Here's a link to the technical specs

Not sure if you have figured this out from your last post. Yes, Gen 1 tv only plays 720p not 1080p HD files, but also funny enough Gen 1 plays Movie Extras and Music LP Art menu (like on your Mac), where the newer Gen 2&3 won't.
