Hello,
Newbie here.
I just got the old Apple TV with the 160GB Hard Drive.  I wanted to figure out how to sign in to iTunes on the Apple TV and start downloading all the Movies I've already bought on iTunes, but I can't figure it out.  I prefer to have these movies on the Apple TV Hard Drive to playback later from this drive because sometimes when I try to Stream video on other devices, the video will start and stop and buffer a lot.  I was thinking that I would avoid this if I played the movies right from the Apple TV's hard drive.
If I could, I would copy the movies from my laptop hard drive to a USB memory stick, but I can't seem to copy the movie files from the memory stick to the Apple TV hard drive when I plug it into the the Apple TV device. this Would be faster than downloading all the movies from itunes again.
I'm also going to hard wire my Apple TV instead of using the WiFi.  I find that my Laptop searches the internet and Downloads faster with Ethernet Cable, and takes twice as long with the WiFi.
Any help would be great, because I have about 25 movies on my Laptop and iTunes account I want to get on my Apple TV hard drive. it's about 80GB and would really suck if I had spend hours and hours, all day, getting these movies to Apple TV hard drive very slowly.
Thanks.

You sync content on to the first gen ATV thought iTunes.  After you have entered the ATV setup code in iTunes it will give you a menu to let you choose what content to sycn to ATV.
