I have been using TVersity for some time now to listen to music that is in my iTune library. I have just downloaded several episodes of a TV show from iTune but cannot figure out how to get them to play on my TV with Media Share and TVersity. Any help would be appreciated.

Someone else can correct me but I'm pretty sure that Tversity can't stream any DRM'd content which the video files from iTunes would be.

OK, since TVersity can't stream these downloaded shows, is there anything that can.

No, that's what DRM does. You have to use a player that decrpts the DRM which in this case is iTunes and iTunes only because it's a closed system.

FYI this is why I refuse to ever buy any video on iTunes or Amazon VOD. I don't want to be restricted. I'll just buy the DVD/Blu and rip it.

Your only other choice really is an HTPC with iTunes on it or get an Apple TV box (which I believe can access your iTunes content).

AppleTV is the easiest alternative. But, there are rumors around that Apple is about to update AppleTV, bringing the price point down to around $99 and have a new operating system on it (iOS). If the rumors pan out true, and this new device has the ability to stream netflix and all of your DRM and non-DRM content on my PC, I'll be highly tempted to purchase one.

That would be tempting, but right now I am streaming Netflix using my sammy Blu Ray player so that would be duplication.
